i finally decided to start tinkering with home automation and i want to use openHAB. I have a server, network etc setup, but i need some help choosing the first items for the automation-part
I need a relais and a temperature sensor. They stay outside, so they should be able to deal with temperatures from -25°C to +60°C (or something along those lines). They wont sit in the pouring rain, but i cant guarentee absolute dryness or a certain humidity. Finally they should use some kind of wireless connection that works with openHAB and is very reliable (the life of 4 turtles is on the line!).
Do you have any suggestions on what technology, brand or model i should use here? I searched the board, and will continuing to do so, but i dont think that i can pick out the best device for my requirements for myself.
Thanks in advance for any tips!
