I observed interesting future developments at you website (after version 2.1.0)
For example control of fans lightning etc
Maybe it also nice to send an e-mail out when a valve starts and stops
In this moment I’m using for light control outside my house the Edimax plug SP-1101W
Very good product, the only disadvantage is that this plug has only a smartphone interface and no web interface and no sun rise and sun set control, resulting in monthly switch on/off time adjustments
For each plug, I’ve 6 plugs
The SP 1101W sends e-mail out by switching on and switching off, as I traveling frequently a big benefit
In the future I like to control the lights trough the Opensprinker equipment.
Thanks in advance considering my suggestionsNovember 11, 2014 at 10:31 pm #34626
In regard to the web interface you are welcome to navigate to http://ui.opensprinkler.com directly. This is the equivalent of the mobile application and has full feature support.
Thanks for the feedback!November 11, 2014 at 11:01 pm #34628
Thanks for your advice, works well, more easier than connection through Dyndns and port by web browser
Is it porsible to send an e-mail out when a watering valve starts and stops?
Referring to my previous mail the web interface comment was related to the EDIMAX wireles plugNovember 14, 2014 at 2:23 am #34670
@Andrew: I just want to briefly mention that the first support for using OpenSprinkler to control radio frequency (RF) wireless power socket has been added to the upcoming firmware 2.1.1. I’ve recently released the RFtoy gadget:
part of the purpose of this gadget is for users to easily obtain the wireless control code of these power sockets, then OpenSprinkler can simulate the remote to turn on / off these sockets.
Note that RF wireless sockets (typically 433MHz) are different from WiFi power sockets in that they are not WiFi based. On the plus side, RF sockets are much cheaper and widely available.November 14, 2014 at 11:20 pm #34677
@ Ray, Thank you very much for your comprehensive informationJanuary 31, 2015 at 11:24 am #35436
Can you please add in the ability to use sensors (wired or wireless) ? Specifically moister sensors. As well as temp, humidity, light. + data logging
ThanksFebruary 2, 2015 at 2:46 pm #35450
Adding sensor control is often easily said than done. Because there are many different types of sensors, their outputs vary significantly, and there are different ways to determine how each sensor should affect the sprinkler programs, it’s hard to have a one for all solution. If you have a specific sensor in mind, it’s not too hard to wire it to OpenSprinkler, and modify the code to add custom control tailored to your specific application. Part of the reason OpenSprinkler is open-source is to give users the flexibility to customize.March 26, 2015 at 5:55 pm #36282
Newbee here. After a few days with a OSbb and an RFtoy in hand, I have a few suggestions.
The first is to add forum sections for the new products such as the RFtoy and the ESPtoy.
One of the first sections of the RFtoy forum would be a place to generate a list of captured codes for devices. It would be constantly updated by postings of people on the forum. It would be listed by frequency (if known) and Manufacturer model number. The frequency can be determined by the FCC ID number printed on any transmitting device and can be looked up on line.
My second suggestion would be for a future circuit board update that would include PC board pads that would match “Grove” connectors for adding sensors of various type and perhaps use one for the RF transmitter connection. Also cut a few slots in the top of the cover for sensor wires to go thru.March 26, 2015 at 11:39 pm #36287
This site is predominantly for OpenSprinkler and RFToy is not sold on this site. Rayshobby.net has a forum for both RFtoy and ESPtoy. You can find it here: http://rayshobby.net/phpBB3/March 27, 2015 at 1:45 pm #36311
Thanks, I didn’t know about that bulletin board. I have added to my bookmarks.
