I’ve already ordered one of the DIY kits you still have in stock.
I understood those still come with a relay so I will be fine 🙂
My order will probable need some time for shipping and customs, and I will have to build it as well, so I guess I will be back here in a couple of month to ask for assistance on how to connect the RF modules…
I decided for the Opensprinkler over the OsPi because I think I won’t need (another) full featured Linux box on my network which I have to keep updated with security updates.
My Idea with the 433Mhz receiver is to mount a RF switch next to a water outlet which I can use to open/close the corresponding valve. I would consider that a quite common scenario, or what would you think?
