Abstract: In agriculture, irrigation plays an important role. Normally, we have many issues in irrigating the plants. Over irrigation of plants leads to decay of plants and low irrigation of plants leads to retardation of crop growth, late flowering. To overcome from this issues the proposed system define a method called Automatic Irrigation system for Smart Homes (AI-SH). The proposed model build an automatic irrigation system approach using Arduino in which moisture sensor senses the moisture content present in the soil. According to the moisture content level water will be pumped to the soil by the DC motor. The sensor continuously monitors the soil moisture content, when it reaches the required water tank level will be used for planting water and its water level will be continuously monitored from an Ultrasonic sensor using distance value. If the range goes beyond the certain level, then the system will send message notification to the user mobile. By this proposed AI –SH approach the user can know the pouring method of water for home plants. If the user he/she are far away from their home can also monitor the plant water easily and quickly.
