I just bought a couple Raspberry Pi 3 devices, along with an electronics kit to get me started that'll be arriving tomorrow.
My goal will be to automate my entire hydroponic grow environment; temps, humidity, lights, EC/PPM, fans etc from a single device, with a single interface. Of course, it'll take some time, but I'm very excited to get started; it's been many years since I've dabbled with electronics/PLC type stuff.
I've been doing some research, and I think I'll start playing with the lower-level Device::BCM2835 module initially to familiarize myself with things, and if I find that I'm beginning to write too many wrappers, I'll test out the HiPi API to see if it covers most of the things that I'll need to do.
How's your project(s) going? Do you have any example code that you can share?
