I just finished adding insulation and weather seal to my greenhouse for extending the growing season through winter.

I have some controls, sensors, and camera system installed, but they are not all connected together as a system.

I planned to use either a raspberry pi 3, or the Intel Edison kit to control heat, cooling, vents, humidity, and automatic watering and lighting,

and network the data and controls via WiFi and/or Bluetooth.

Since this project was picked to receive an Intel Edison dev kit, I will be using that platform base for this project.

So while I'm waiting for hardware to arrive, it's time to dig through the internet for documentation.

First the Intel site:
