I apologize if this has been asked already but the thread is 18 pages deep. I’m looking to build one of these but I’m sure what hardware I need.
I had this picked out: http://www.amazon.com/RASPBERRY-MODEL-756-8308-Raspberry-Pi/dp/B009SQQF9C but I know that it doesn’t come power or whatever programming cable (USB?) that it needs. I then looked at this :
Can some of you guys walk me through what I need to get started?
See the bottom of page 2 of the manual on the product page:
The pi in your first link is what I used. Buy a 4GB or larger SD micro SD card and a USB/wifi dongle if you don’t have ethernet where it will be installed. If you already have a working 24 VAC sprinkler system you don’t need anything else.
