In Vandôme et al., 2023, we explain how we designed a low-cost wireless sensor network for drip irrigation monitoring in Tunisia. All the software needed to do so is available below. 1. Upload ”Pilowtech sx1276 arduino” file on Arduino IDE, fill in your sensor information and upload it on your Arduino Pro Mini microcontroller. 2. Upload ”Onsite reader arduino” file on the Arduino Uno and fill in your calibration parameters for onsite data reading. 3. Upload the ”3D package” file to a 3D printer to get your sensor packaging. 4. Upload the ”Nodered dataflow” file to Node-RED and adapt it to your data flow to get your sensor network ready!
