Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized many fields in the recent past. It addresses many aspects related to the data management, storage and connectivity. This work will focus on the application of IoT to automatic irrigation system. The system will use a microcontroller, preferably of 32-bit. Microcontroller uses wireless sensor nodes placed in the farm and collects information such as temperature, soil moisture, water level, pressure, humidity. This information gathered is then stored on cloud. Microcontroller uses a WiFi module connected in station mode. The WiFi module establishes a connection to a router and posts the data periodically to the cloud. It uses the common IEEE 802.11 standard protocol stack for communication between device and the internet. Data transmitted to the cloud can be used to control the irrigation. The system can be further extended to alert the farmer to take necessary steps according to the weather parameters. Lolin Node MCU is used as the Microcontroller. Node MCU uses ESP8266 wifi module which uses Tensilica’s L106 Diamond series 32-bit processor, with on-chip SRAM, besides the WiFi functionalities. The GPIO pins of the ESP8266 can be used to interface sensor nodes.
