The design of an automated hydroponic system follows from the need of having a system that works through difficult situations. A situation involving a power outage is considered a major problem since the plants in the hydroponic should not be kept without water for more than a couple of hours. If it occurs, the plants will not be able to be harvested and it would result in economic and time loss. Having an automated system would prevent this disaster and would provide the owner some help by showing what it needs. This being more nutrient solution in the reservoir tank, showing the pH level of the solution, or even letting the owner know through phone communication about a power outage. For different types of hydroponics there are different methods of application but they all follow the same needs. For easy application and better understanding of the system, electronic integration with Arduino is used. This design covers the basic needs of the hydroponic system while providing easy manufacturing and integration. Key Terms⎯ Arduino, Hydroponic, Sensor, System.
