How to build Rain sensor

We will use the below rain sensor and driver to build Rain alarm system. Sensor is 2 pin module just connect it with driver input pin. Driver module has 4 pin. We use pin-6 as data input from driver. Driver will provide low output in case rain fall on to sensor. Pin-9 use for driver power supply by setting high output

Program:

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>
LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);
const int D0 = 6;
const int powerrainsensor = 9;

void setup() {
// put your setup code here, to run once:

Serial.begin(9600);
pinMode(D0, INPUT);
pinMode(powerrainsensor, OUTPUT);
lcd.begin(16, 2);
lcd.print(” Rain Sensor”);
lcd.display();
digitalWrite(powerrainsensor, HIGH);
}

void loop() {

boolean rain;
rain = digitalRead(D0);
Serial.print(rain);
Serial.print(” Raining “);
Serial.println();

if(rain==false){
itsRaining();
}else{
itsNotRaining();
}
delay(1000);
}
void itsNotRaining(){
Serial.println(“Its Not Raining”);
lcd.noDisplay();
lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
lcd.print(“Its Not Raining”);
lcd.display();
}
void itsRaining(){
Serial.println(“Its Raining “);
lcd.noDisplay();
lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
lcd.print(“Its Raining”);
lcd.display();
}
