OpenSprinkler – Open Source Sprinkler Controller

at 11:33 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks


If you are looking for a way to automate your lawn watering have a look at OpenSprinkler which is an Open Source Sprinkler Controller. Looks like a nice controller and will also have a custom enclosure available.

Thanks for the tip John.

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.”
