First off i’m not an Engineer and i know nothing about Circuit design or coding, i’m sorry if i sound a bit stupid when i post this
A few week back I found this Project on youtube and proceeded to build it
Under this i bought all the components rigged up the circuit and also fed the code in to my Arduino Pro mini. But i ran in to a problem when ordering a Vera (Home Automation) controller the instrument went out of stock and was unavailable in my country and those which are available were way over my budget range . As the variables to run the timer on the irrigation were set via Vera’s . I was unable proceed any further because of this missing instrument.
So i have come here to seek some professional advice from you guys. My first question is.
- Can i set the timer value for my switch via OpanHAB just like the guy in the video set it on his Vera software.
- Which is the best Hardware that can act as home automation with OpenHAB, i see lot of people on youtube using Raspberry Pie, Should i go for it or do you have any other suggestions
- Do i need to construct a gateway between my home automation hardware which has openHAB2 on it and my irrigation circuit system ?
