Water is an important aspect in aspects of life. In agriculture it is a major component of photosynthesis and transportation of nutrients from the soil to plants. Usually farmers provide water twice a day on a regular basis, but at certain times require excess water to maintain soil moisture. In chili plants, humidity needs around 60% to 80% so that plants can grow to the maximum. Internet of things (IoT) technology can help farmers to support the water needs that are in the soil. With IoT technology it can also help in the irrigation process by releasing or managing pumps automatically. The IoT device used to make this system is equipped with NodeMCU, a humidity sensor and a mobile based application as an IoT device control software. The Internet of Things (IoT) system can help the irrigation system in chilli plants to ensure the safety of the soil is raised 60% to 80%.
