We Believe in the Right to Repair

The core platform of MudPi was built open source and available to the public. We believe in order to build a strong service users should be able to expand on a platform to their needs with ease. The components we use are commercially available can be self replaced. We even have guides to help you.

How it Works

MudPi is made to install on top of your existing irrigation. This way you're not locked to any specific method or vendor. The main controller unit is capable of regulating water with pumps or controlled valves. It follows schedules and parameters you specify such as desired soil moisture can control when to water your plants. Sensors are polled periodically for recent values that can be stored. You get notifications of garden conditions and alerts of anything important.

Wisconsin Made ♥

Hello! I'm Eric Davisson, a full stack developer and tinkerer from Wisconsin. MudPi was created as a personal project to help me manage my garden without taking all of my free time. The project has grown and I quickly realized many other people could benefit from its useful possibilities. Automated gardening doesn't have to be hard or overpriced. This is why the core platform was created as a foundation that could be built upon.

MudPi is actively being developed and improved. I greatly welcome any feedback or suggestions! Sign up for the newsletter and check back for updates as they are made available.
