Swimming Pool Solar Controller With Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Here’s a great, practical project for anyone who’s got a pool. So none of us here in New York City. But conrats if you have a pool! — via Rob’s Raspberry Pi Blog
Project goal: Build a controller that will control my swimming pool’s temperature using a Raspberry Pi. 2. The system will need to have manual overrides for the pool pumps that anyone can use. It will need to be controlled at the device with a keypad and display by anyone. The controller will need to turn on the cleaning pump by time schedule. The controller will need to turn on solar pumps by time schedule and depending of temperatures.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
