Has anyone made a simple timer system example

Postby Quentin » Tue Jul 17, 2012 12:00 am

Hi, I am new to Flowstone and trying to wrap my head around the best way to construct a 24H timer system as a way to get started with a greenhouse automation project. really a simple alarm clock example could be generalized into a 4 timer sprinkler system with multiple on's and off's per 24 hour period. I will ultimately apply some simple logic and turn relay's on and off via a Labjack i/o board which seems nicely supported or an Arduino. Anybody already gone down this road?
Thanks
Quentin

You just need to use the time module to get a real time clock to compare to.

Here's one I made earlier:

Hello Quentin,

I have done something similiar for my home automation project via labjack U3. I do have adjustable timers to switch ON/OFF digital I/O tied to relay modules. My time of day timers are for my dog feeder and dog water valve. I created a post in the user examples "home automation project". My schematic file is there. You can download and take it apart to use what you need.

MJ.

Hey thanks for the reply,
I posted this more than a year ago, right at the beginning. don't often log on or look at forums. I have been using flowstone to prototype automation interfaces for the last year now. It has been a great tool and the ruby componants/http post has given us a lot of data flexiblility. Right now trying to generalize the preset modules for automation targets/thresholds. Now if only flowstone jumped to android, it would rule the world.
Cheers,
Quentin
