This project was submitted by Ashok Ra in The Cypress Bluetooth 5 IoT Design Contest with Mouser and Electromaker.io and was one of the winners! We are now posting it in the community for all of our developers to see what great things can be developed with the CYW20819 - as well as leverage some of the material to get started on your own design. All project files submitted are attached to this community post. Check it out below!
Project Name: Smart Home Garden With Bluetooth Mesh
This project strived to deliver a robust prototype of a truly automated home system - a Smart Garden. This project leveraged the EZ-BT Bluetooth Mesh Development Kit and showed how multiple nodes can be used in a smart home to do different tasks: Turn on LED lights when motion is detected, control the opening and closing of a gate/mailbox and actuate an irrigation system. It also showed the benefits of Bluetooth Mesh networking and Cypress solution - as all of these different nodes were controlled by a modified version of Cypress' reference Android Mobile App. This project took things a step further and interfaced the Mesh App with Twilio's Messaging API so that a user would get WhatsApp messages when the irrigation system was turned on for example. Below are some images of the project as well as a video tour of the Smart Garden.
