OpenSprinkler, an open-source internet-based sprinkler / irrigation timer


Ray has written a detailed article about hisĀ OpenSprinkler 2.0 Arduino-based irrigation controller:

OpenSprinkler is an open-source Internet / Ethernet sprinkler timer / controller based on the Arduino platform. It works with standard 24VAC sprinkler valves commonly found in household watering and irrigation systems. You may be planning to buy or have already purchased a commercial sprinkler timer / controller, but chances are that these systems provide a limited set of fixed functionality, and have no web scheduling and monitoring capability. These limitations are the main motivations for this open-source project.

  1. I love this application. I’m wondering how you would go about programming the arduino to accept input from various sensors and then to take corrective actions if one or more of the inputs is out of range?
    I’m new to this but would like to collaborate with someone on this as a project. (possibly paid!)

  2. Hi Nolan,
    No I have not in fact. To be honest I’ve been busy with moving overseas. What kind of work are you doing? I’d be interested in hearing what you have in mind.
