Nowadays, we have constantly technological improvements that allow to automate physical processes. These processes save time and energy to man. Internet, networking and the computational power of the devices allow you to generate new services and applications that improve the quality of life for people. We live in an age in which powerful and low cost new devices appear, and all together, with the resources and knowledge that we have, we can innovate and create automated systems virtually for any type of application or service. On the other hand, companies are aware that to progress should make use of new technologies in order to improve its services. The objectives in companies are, through an investment with technological approaches, achieve savings in personnel and maintenance of services, as well as to collect information and data on their customers. In turn, these customers will receive a service of the highest quality, which may control remotely via platforms showing all the options of the application in a friendly manner. This project intends to automate irrigation system that installs a gardening company. To do this, is needed to create a platform that will allow the user to view the weather data and to have absolute control of your irrigation system. This system comprises a series of sensors connected to a micro-controller, in turn controlled by a micro-processor with access to the internet, allowing you to control the entire system from a distance. Both sensors and both devices are low-cost. The system is going to be called Regpi, and this project includes the first part of this one. This first part will allow obtaining data from sensors through a browser, which will be allowed to monitor the entire system. The final target of the whole system provides a platform that allows the full automation of the system, keeping informed the user of the meteorological data, the quantity of water consumed, and be notified by an event if there is a leak in the system. In addition, you can easily extend the network of sensors and configure it according to the needs.
