also depending on what you want to do with it look into amazon's Echo. i have lights in my house automated with this (very easy to do) but it will do much more, Ive seen sprinkler systems home security systems...

That would be the way to do it if I were some method out mouth breather living on the SE side...

Over here in Cypress we are actually evolving and I have decided to use that same time I would spend doing repetitive, mindless tasks, instead learning how to do something much more useful

I'm thinking this aquarium thing would be a lot easier. Like you said I bet they have some existing software too

Yeah I did quite a bit of command line copy/pasting when I set the thing up so I am hoping I can pull something similar off.

I just purchased a pi 3 for a side hobby. Turning it into a retropi first but I am pretty excited about the potential power it has. Anyone that buys a roku/chromecast/firestick over this thing is just a plain consumer. You can turn your old printer into a wifi printer with one of these bad boys.

adafruit.com has a bunch of pi stuff for sale

Yeah dude this thing is mindless consumers like toe's worst nightmare. It can do everything multiple hundred+ dollar devices can and it's 35 bucks.

That Pi zero is also pretty powerful for five dollars. You could do a lot with just that little thing. I got the Pi 3 not too long after it became available in stores.

2 days of talking about pie and not one mention of pumpkin pie. Dissapointing.

In other news it has been 2 days and shelly is no closer to setting up his aquarium. Could have been done by now if he just listened to tow.....

Check back in a week when shelly saves up his nickles to buy a wind powered clothes dryer.

bro this thing is well within the pre planning phase at the moment. I've still got a load of work left in the process of finishing my grow beds. The final system is going to be epic
