Guys I figured I would use this area to show my DYI controller, issues, bugs, and progress as it slowly goes. Unfortunately at the time of writing this I don't have access to get screen shots but will upload some later. Description Being an IT guy I had a friend suggested using a RaspberryPi as a controller. I am building a web application, which can be accessed via any web device (computer/phone/tablet). Currently the system controls four power outlets, a temp sensor, weekly maintenance reminders, and logging area for information. Plans My plan is to have a full automatic system. Current Bugs I just received an email and push notification from my tank stating my water's temp was 181f. I was not too concern because I been having issues with that sensor; a cable or two would come unplugged. My concern was normally I would get alert that the water was 32f never 181. Worry my heater was stuck on I called my wife to check. She said the water wasn't hot and when she checked my heater the 'on' light was off.
