For context, I come from a very software-heavy background so I know very little about hardware.
I'm looking to build a system that requires at least 6 sensors (pH, electrical conductivity, humidity, temperature, light intensity, flow rate), and I want to send all of this input over WiFi at ~10 minute intervals. Most of these sensors will be analogue.
I noticed that for example the Arduino Uno only has 6 analogue inputs. Plus from research, I would need to connect a WiFi module to the Uno which seems too much of a hassle and added cost.
I'm looking at the ARDUINO NANO 33 IOT right now. It seems perfect for what I want to do since it's cheap, has 8 analogue pins, and has WiFi out-of-the-box. Is my reasoning correct in choosing this Arduino? I'm wondering why something with WiFi capability and more pins is cheaper than the Uno.
Thanks in advance!
