Hello All, after looking around at off-the-shelf options for an Aquarium controller, I found that they are all ridiculously expensive here in Thailand.
So I started initially looking at the Jarduino Project, which is an Arduino Mega based DIY controller.
The code and hiccups with that are plenty and it’s Reef Based.
Came across Spark and straight away ordered 1 kit, 1 core and 2 relay shields.
Can’t wait to get it in and start.
Functions for the controller:
- Temperature Measurement
- Based on Temperature: switching on heater or cooling fans
- Light control. Initially simple switching on/off until I get around more sophisticated LED fixtures (DIY of course)
- Ph-Measurement (and in a later stage maybe control)
- Spore Dosing for plants with a peristaltic pump.
- Auto Feeding.
Will be a long road, but will sure keep posting questions/solutions and pictures as I start tackling this list item by item.
