Our irrigation system

Our Raspberry Pi managed irrigation system has now been running since early summer with no real issues.

It’s currently controlling 4 zones in the garden (there is actually a 5th zone, but it’s still controlled by a dedicated controller).

It also sends us messages (through Prowl) whenever it turns on and off – and can be controlled manually using a browser – as long as you are on our local area network.

More about this later.
