The truebner SMT50 is a capacitive soil temperature and humidity sensor and is therefore well suited for various applications in the home garden. Capacitive soil moisture sensors generate an electrical field around their measuring electrodes. The field penetrates into the surrounding soil. The sensor’s measuring electronics determine the resulting electrical capacity of the electrodes. The higher the water content in the soil, the greater the measuring capacity of the sensor.
In Blockly the sensor can be read out via the following block:
In the block you can choose between the different parameters of the soil moisture and temperature sensor:
