    My earlier post above at number 16. Contains a lot of information therein. I also mentioned spud the author of the raspberry pi IO plugin which can aid you to do what you want.

    First you have to be logged in then click on the name that will give you the option on top to send a "private message" There is also spud . He has a raspberry pi IO plugin which I think can do what you want. Please read my post at #16

    There is also this here : https://tutorials-raspberrypi.com/bu...pi-greenhouse/ Once you get yourself around it then contact spud here https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/an...sting?t=183857 for help.

    Eman thanks, I know that they are around since commercial greenhouses use them I just was hoping I could find whatever it is they use and apply it to the hometroller. Are you able to look at the page I sent a link to and tell me if it even transmits on something that would be compatible with the home troller?
    I meant you as a user on HomeSeer forums. Now if you go back at my post at #9 . That's how you could bring it to work in HomeSeer.
    You just have to do the reading and search external forums how to apply it your project.

    Tip : direct your further question here : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/an...-enigmatheatre

    they do show what radio interfaces they have. Can someone tell me if any of them will work with the hometroller and if so a forum page or information on connecting it to the hometroller?
    Because this is more of a personal project and based on industrial, you will have to do the hard work yourself. Most forums here although you can bake your own, are based on home automation. So you are the first to come up with this.
    Now if all hope fails then I suggest you beg or go down on one knee as ask @Michael McSharry. He is one smart cookie! He is the one who can do things like that.

    Lol, Eman sent my reply than saw you had recently made one to. I really appreciate your help however as much as I love the idea of the Arduino and own one. I frankly don’t have the time to figure out all the intricacies. It as I previously wrote you did send me a link that somehow gave me the information about libelium and now would like to know if I purchased their product how I would go about connecting it to my hometroller. I have sent them an email but I’m sure someone here will respond with the information quicker and possibly better.

    First search based on Arduino ex : https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=157873.0 because this is your project (Interest). The join this group here : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/an...-enigmatheatre to find help.

    I hope that helps.

    Just clicked your second link. I did come across this company before but could not figure out if it was compatible with the home troller and if so what plugin would be necessary to make it work. Are you able to help me with that?
