    Or just readjust the miter platform as needed lol.

    Great build. Can you provide a link for the slides you used?

  • Web Enabled Pool Control - Raspberry Pi

    After looking at the innards of an actuator, it seems like you could use two relays and when both were off, it would stop at that point? Maybe I'm missing something.

    Thank you! This is great and very helpful. Appreciate the detailed descriptions as well. I am getting close to having a working prototype for much of my functionality and want to test it out before actually switching the pool equipment over from my current controller, but these pics definitely help my confidence with the high voltage stuff.One thing I would LOVE to do is hack the "off" switch on the valve actuators. If I could run them for a set amount of time and then freeze them in a both open position, that would allow me the opportunity to do some great things with my pool.Since you seem to be pretty astute with this stuff, do you think that is even possible? I would think so, but I haven't messed around with it yet. I have a few semi-working spares that I may mess a...

I'll be sure to share what I have when it's a bit more ready for prime time.

  • Web Enabled Pool Control - Raspberry Pi

    Thank you!I'm managing the temperature measurement already, so I wan to be able to control that via my DIY controller. Walking to the heater would be a bit difficult for me given location. I'll work more on that as I get closer.Currently, I'm looking to integrate mine with SmartThings, but I may look into OpenHAB as well and see if that's more feasible (I already have ST hub and have some of the integrations implemented).Is there a semi-private way I can send you my email address lol, as I would love to see detailed photos?

    This is very impressive. Hopefully you're still around to answer questions! Have you made any recent updates? I am looking to undertake a similar project (using a particle proton) and I have the same heater. Could you elaborate on how you control the Pentair heater? Also, I see you used a separate 24v transformer for each actuator, etc. The Hayward controller I currently have seems to employ only one 24v transformer. What led you to that decision? Finally, if you have some clear pics of the innards, I would be very interested to see how you wired everything up. Thank you!

  • How to Make an Organizer Box for Storing Screws

    Very cool. A suggestion I might add it to put a french cleat on each "little" box so you could hang what you're using on the wall and get them off the work surface.
