Raspberry Pi as central server for water monitoring and lighting (Koi pond!) –

Raspberry Pi as central server for water monitoring and lighting (Koi pond!) . Tim writes –

I have just reached 15 days continuous uptime on my raspi (running adafruit packaged raspbian).

This raspi is running a custom twisted server which is communicating with a locally connectedJeeNode V6… which controls a 3 phase bore, several DS18B20 temp sensor (one immersed in water) and a Milone liquid level sensor.) The remote node manages water level in a 20m x 5m plant filter for a 120,000 litre capacity collection of 80 ponds growing water lilies and Koi.. as well as monitoring environmentals. Details are continously posted to cosm. In addition I can monitor and control solar power LED flood lights with PIR sensors from the raspi remotely over the same wireless network. The JeeNode is connected to the raspi via serial GPIO pins and is drawing power from the +5 pin on the raspi.

I am very impressed with the reliability and how easy it was to get things going especially given how new the hardware and distro’s are.

Pictured above, a nice Koi pond 🙂


Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Here is the cosm feed https://cosm.com/feeds/54118 for this system if your interested. Uptime is now 27 days 😉 Time for a competition on who has the longest Raspberry Pi uptime.
