The purpose of this project is to control and monitor a swimming pool using temperature sensors, relays and Microsoft Azure.
The inspiration for this project is the need to remotely operate and monitor our kids swimming pool, which is an Intex 15′ x 48″ round pool. The pool holds approx. 5000 gallons of water. It is connected to a Sand Filter/Pump, an 11KW Heater, and a Salt Water System. The goal was to monitor pool water temperature, air temperature and control the pump, heater and salt water system to ensure the pool was warm enough for the kids, while not over-running it.
This 5 minute video shows how the pool, sensors, circuit boards and relays are connected.
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
