Raspberry Pi Project – Sprinkler Timer

The following is a guide to building a Raspberry Pi Sprinkler Timer.

  1. Get Raspbian Wheezy Installed and working.
  2. Run sudo apt-get update and upgrade.
  3. Setup whatever network connectivity you may plan on using, wired, wireless etc. This is not required but it’s nice for changing the settings.
  4. Build out the hardware: (I’ll provide more here later as this is a rough draft)
  5. Install your favorite remote desktop app, I use XNC. Make sure remote connectivity is working.
  6. sudo apt-get install python-imaging
  7. sudo apt-get install python-imaging-tk
  8. sudo apt-get install python-mysqldb
