About

What is Adosia: 

WiFi Controlled Self Watering Pots
WiFi Controlled Self Watering Pots

The Adosia IoT Platform is a suite of Internet of Things (IoT) building blocks that lets beginners to experts easily create, deploy and remotely monitor custom WiFi control systems within minutes, without the hassle of learning how to code.  We have functional hardware and software in production.

We wanted to create a platform to empower entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, students, hobbyists and creative builders alike. With Adosia entrepreneurs can produce rapid prototypes, develop complete products, and/or quickly deploy IoT solutions for their businesses. Scientists can use customized automation and monitoring to create better practices. Educators can quickly engage students and increase confidence by providing their students the experience of building real and functional IoT systems. And hobbyists and builders can build the ground-up inventions of tomorrow. Adosia quickly lets anyone build out real solutions to address their automation needs — whatever they may be.

Kickstarter hardware rewards will begin shipping as early as June!  We will try to ship everything early if possible.  Thanks for supporting Adosia!


 The Adosia IoT Platform: 

Adosia's platform enables agile and cost-effective development, deployment, and monetization of your wirelessly connected devices.  The best part is we've done all the coding work for you, so you don't have to write any software.  Your imagination is the limit.  

Adosia will use funds from this campaign to manufacture hardware in volume to reduce production time and cost.  Any excess funds (stretch goals) will be used to develop new IO boards, solar solutions sensor(s) and software to service new ranges of IoT applications.  If our campaign performs exceptionally well, Adosia will begin expanding into smaller ESP8266 form factors, an ESP32-based IoT platform and related software.  All stretch goals will be announced via update.


 What can you do with the Adosia IoT Platform: 

  • deploy custom WiFi control systems in minutes
  • remotely manage & monitor all IoT devices
  • setup custom triggers and alert notifications
  • schedule dynamic device profiles
  • setup custom triggers to activate individual components or multiple components simultaneously
  • customize one or two motor/switch channels and digital io channels to activate components on cycle, by trigger, set to be always on, activate by daily schedule, or activate on daily frequency
  • configure one or two 3.3v supported digital input, motion detectors, digital outputs (relays, etc).
  • trigger components and initiate alerts using analog sensors, motion detectors, temperature sensors, water level sensor switches, digital inputs and more
  • use one or two water level sensor switches to protect individual components or multiple components from damage, or refill reservoirs
  • use analog sensors to trigger outputs to meet target levels (as in watering to meet a target moisture level)
  • monitor and trigger on analog sensors
  • send temperature triggered alerts, or control items at a specific temperature
  • assign device profiles to multiple devices for operational scaling
  • schedule device profiles to automatically change throughout the day for optimal flexibility
  • request features additions as Adosia IoT devices support remote updates to expand capabilities and support new sensors in the future

What you can build:

Adosia IoT device subassembly hardware consists of a pre-programmed ESP8266 WiFi baseboard and an Adosia SPACE IO shield.  You connect and define the operation for all your IoT devices using the web-based Adosia IoT Platform.  Your Adosia IoT device also supports remote updates making it easy for them to expand capabilities and support new sensors.


Build a Self-Watering Pot

Build a WiFi-connected self-watering pot (application 1 of ∞) that maintains a target soil moisture level and sends text alerts when the water reservoir needs refilling - make traveling easy for you and your plants.

Here's a 6 year old building a WiFi self watering pot!

Now you can create a future where imagination is the only limit.

Adosia literally enables thousands of WiFi applications with every new Adosia IoT hardware board we release


Build a Motion-Activated WiFi Stove Light - Night Schedule Only

Use the Adosia IoT Platform to build a motion-activated overhead stove light that will only trigger at night.  You can use these steps to also build a custom night light as well.  In this example we setup the stove light to be motion-activated strictly between 9pm and 5am.


Build a hidden switch lock cabinet with text message on access/entry

With the Adosia IoT Platform you can build a hidden switch lock cabinet that can send you text messages when accessed or if someone is attempting to gain entry.  You can use our lock kit for kitchen drawers, desk drawers, or any place you want extra locks or security. Add a motion sensor to trigger an alert for added peace of mind.


Build a motion activated scary decoration for Halloween for pranks or just for fun

Adosia's base device and platform makes it easy to prank your friends and family. For this Halloween, why not build a motion activated pumpkin, witch, hand, head or anything you can think of to scare your trick or treaters as they walk by your door or driveway.  After Halloween you can get creative with your Adosia IoT device and your Christmas tree.

Build a hydroponic system with water reservoir temperature monitor and alerts

For those who love to garden but don't have the time to maintain it, Adosia makes it easy to create an automatic garden system or hydroponics system that will do the work for you. Adosia hardware can be used to create a wide variety of automated gardening systems to water plants, refill water reservoirs, control the soil moisture, check the water temperature, and more.  Literally build, customize and monitor your cultivation.

Build a jewelry box / safe tamper alarm with text message alerts on box movement

Adosia's IoT devices can add a little extra security to your valuables with our tamper alarm and text message alert kit.  With a tilt sensor, you can set up alerts to be sent to you when your jewelry box or safe has been moved, tampered with or opened.

You can also build a:  

  • automatic garden or hydroponic system
  • automatic dog water bowl refill with text message alert on refill
  • portable / temporary remote plant monitoring and automated watering system
  • remote rain detector with rain notification alert
  • custom plant feeder system that waters on low soil moisture
  • animal feeder with custom feeding schedules
  • aquarium setups with filter pumps, air stones, custom lighting and temperature alerts
  • smoke detector with trigger alarm and text message notification

IoT Platform Screenshots:

 Below is the IoT Dashboard showing the current health and status of each Adosia IoT device connected to your account

The graph below is for a motion-activated overhead stove light.  The top line graph shows how many times the motion detector was triggered each day, and the bottom bar graph shows how many minutes the light was activated each day due to motion triggers.

The graph below shows a couple more examples of component triggering.  The top graph represents digital IO (relay) triggers and the bottom represents triggers for a switch channel (small water pump).

The graph below represents sensory data with corresponding triggers.  The top graph represents triggers and data attributed to temperatures, the bottom graph represents soil moisture triggers and data attributed to moisture levels.

Adosia’s IoT device subassembly hardware consists of a pre-programmed ESP8266 WiFi baseboard and an Adosia SPACE IO board:

SPACE IO Board Features

  • x2 independent switch channels for running water pumps, air pumps, solenoid valves, electric deadbolt locks, LED strips, small dc motors and more
  • x2 independent io channels for switching outputs such as relays and alarm buzzers (output mode), or enabling input sensors such as motion detectors, vibration or tilt sensors, magnet sensors, sounds sensors, ambient temperature sensors, pressure switches, push button switches and any general 3.3V digital input (input mode)
  • x2 independent input channels for mix-and-match choice of temperature sensors or water level sensor switches (support for more sensors coming)
  • x1 analog input — the Adosia IoT platform currently supports a soil moisture sensor, a gas/smoke sensor, a light sensor or a sound sensor (pH sensor and more coming soon)

Risks and challenges

The Adosia IoT platform is in beta with both functional software and hardware. We are able to push remote updates to improve our system as we learn and grow (we haven't had to manually flash a device in the field in over 6 months). The Adosia team is confident we will be able to deliver upon our commitments to our Kickstarter supporters. We are currently working on software and GUI enhancements including graphical representations of historical data. We are evaluating assembly houses and have the capacity to build ~500 units per week in house as worst case scenario. We will begin shipping rewards in May and will complete reward fulfillment by the end of July.
