I am just starting to dig into OpenSprinkler, and don;t know whether it is better to go with OpenSprinklerPi or OpenSprinkler – I have both a Pi as well as a UNO. Suggestions are gratefully welcome!
The attached pic is my attempt at laying out how I think I would like my garden watering system to work. Hopefully it is sufficiently self-explanatory… Again, your guidance is gratefully welcome.
My questions are:
– will I be able to control 3 valves + moisture sensor + pump? In addition, will I need an extra valve to control water flow from the water outlet into the tank, or should the pump be sufficient? Will the 20-gallon tank placed about 4 feet off the ground provide enough pressure to water the beds?
Both OpenSprinkler and OSPi support 8 stations, among which one can be assigned as a pump / master station. Moisture sensor is not supported by default but you can modify the software to add support. Both OpenSprinker and OSPi have analog input pins.
