ZigBee automatic irrigation is a new technology based on Internet of things. Its purpose is to replace the current manual operation mode, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. It uses the mainstream Internet of things technology ZigBee and solar energy water-saving irrigation system. A wireless sensor acquisition network based on ZigBee RF chip CC2530 is constructed. The network coordinator communicates with the host computer through the RS-232 serial port. It realizes the data collection and monitoring of the whole network, thus achieving the automatic monitoring and control of irrigation. The system also uses solar energy as the main power to provide clean energy for the operation of the system, so as to achieve the goal of water saving, energy saving, intelligence, and efficiency.

Key words: Internet of things, ZigBee automatic irrigation, automatic irrigation, solar energy
