Unfortunately even with many year of programming under my belt I am unfamiliar with Arduino programming, or python.
I did notice that OpenSprinkler appears be be written in C++ so if that is an option for my work then I need to understand:
1. A build environment on Windows 7. A simulator would be nice for testing.
2. The pins you mention for things like a water pressure sensor input (I have no idea what to use here) and water level input (a simple switch either normal on or off)
3. How to load the code onto the OpenSprinkler device.
On the other hand, if I don’t need to code at that level for what I want to do, you did mention Python and if there are some examples I guess at 72 I can learn yet another language.
I look to your advice.
