Today I was asked a few questions in the chat that prompted a tutorial video to be produced. The question was on a recommendation for taking moisture levels from a garden and transmitting them to the PC in the house. While there are several solutions in the end based on power consumption, Wireless Range, and size I made the following recommendations. A Netduino Mini, an XBee, and the addition of a 3.3v regulator to power the XBee. So then the question came up how do I hook all of this up. So part one of the tutorial I published today.
Part 1: Raw Mini Hookup
Part 2: Mini Breakout Hookup
Part 3: Communicating (Lets look at some code)
