Abstract: Aquaponics is a method that helps to cure the scarcity of food and serves as an excellent solution to environmental problems. It is horticulture between aquaculture (farming of fish) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil). Through these techniques, it reduces the use of pesticides and fertilizer. Since the interest in aquaponics is rapidly increasing, one of the significant problems is monitoring the time, plants, and fish. This study aimed to improve the residents' long-term sustainability by offering continuous greenery supplies and fresh fish. Smart Aquaponics system is consisting of different sensors and devices. The sensor is used to monitor the consistent pH level, water level, and water temperature data. Other features also include the ability of the system to feed the fish automatically and deliver an image of the desired greenery at a set time using an Esp32 Cam. All the data gathered from the sensor will be relayed to the Blynk cloud and sends the information to the Blynk application through the IoT module. For a moment, homeowners can easily monitor and control IoT-based aquaponics remotely. The experiment results show that the system uses Esp32-Cam to successfully detect the image of the lettuce plant and upload it into Blynk App. In the water temperature, the system had a variation of temperature reading and is being shown in LCD Display together with the pH level and water level. This system reduces the amount of effort required by humans to maintain and produce healthy greenery and fresh fish.
