For my control and automation project I have automated a couple of processes in the Garage. Being a keen home brewer I've decided to upgrade my existing homebrew controller, the existing unit I had was getting old and I quite liked the idea of being able to control it from anywhere in the house using my mobile phone. For this I've used the node red framework and a raspberry Pi to do the control. There's a project write up here:
On top of that I've decided to integrate some irrigation functionality into the project so I can ensure my fruit patch is adequately watered during summertime. I'm a big fan a home grown fruit and veg but in the summer months I wanted to be sure they were getting enough water since I'm far too busy brewing beer to keep track of that sort of thing.
