Is because you know nothing about APDuinOS and interested in what it is and how it relates IoT (Internet of Things). You can learn more about APDuino by going to http://www.apduino.org or http://www.apduino.com for more detailed information regarding this product. In general it is a IoT developed application for aquaponics and hydroponics systems. It has functionality as a environmental monitoring software as well. It will also allow you to control and interact with your physical world using sensor inputs to trigger actions through an Arduino™ and/or Raspberry Pi®
This reason is why I have written this Instructable. It is because I am a non-technical person that wants to test and play with this concept of controlling my aquaponic units without having to be a software or firmware engineer to be effective in control of them. This direction should allow for getting the systems I build on to the internet and control them with minimum effort, but have total control of any number of sensors and what they interact with and allow for data collection and display .
I still do not fully understand all that is going on with this application, but at least writing this instructable and being able to refer back to it as a guide will help me to duplicate this process as many times as I need to in the future.
