Well I've done what I can so far,however I need further instructions to finish building it.
Here is a link to a photo album of my growerbot so far, as I can't yet confirm if I've actually soldered everything in the right place or not, I've refrained from trimming legs yet so it looks a bit messy still.
Received here in Aus, look forward to assembling it shortly :-D
I have a few custom modifications to make during build, 240V power to starters ;-)
Initial 'getting started' guide just posted: http://www.growerbot.com/2013/01/06/getting-started-with-growerbot-plus/ . Please comment there with any questions; more detail + kit assembly guide soon!
Luke, received the box, but there were no instructions or anything. www.growerbot.com seems to not have anything either. Is there any documentation?
Product received, thank you! Looking for source to figure out how to use it. Is growerbot sw on github?
New estimate on delivery? Sep 2012 is obviously out!
Any more details about the platform? Some thing I'm looking for in my application (aquaponics) is the ability to measure the temperature of the water tank, to be able to switch high power loads (120VAC pumps / 24VDC sprinkler valve solenoids). So will there be extra I/O?
Blaine: $95 level will include light moisture & temp sensors. I'll provide full instructions on upgrading to wifi as well!
Are there any details about the exact contents of the kit at the $95? Especially what sensor types are going to be included? For wifi, is there a suggested shield/solution?
Looking forward to the open source gardening controls! A great idea to put this all in a box.
