Users / Poor man's Sprinkler System
« on: June 21, 2009, 12:12:39 am »
Here, I will be documenting the build of a poor man's sprinkler system. What I mean by that is:

1. Hooks up to your outdoor spicket
2. Be able to control it via LMCE
3. Keep the cost low
4. Make a solution that can be used both 110/220V and 50/60Hz
5. Not have to dig up your yard to install it

Ideas: Use a Z-Wave, X10, or Insteon device to control it through an appliance controller. Could also use it through a wifi connection. If I can get this to work right, I might try to sell some kits and pre-build them into a case or something similar. Many hours of research is needed.

If you guys have any ideas, please post here. I know there are some of you that don't want to have to dig up your yard to have a programmable sprinkler system. I know that there are those battery powered timers, but what is the fun in that if you can't control it while sitting on the couch, or at work, or anywhere.

I just reinstalled 0810 on my core, and I tried to setup my phone lines. I used the webadmin to input the voip settings using the sipgate hack because my provider isn't on the list. I went to FreePBX to see if it took and to change the sip.conf a little, and it gives me those two errors. When I try to manually apply configuration changes, I get this error log:

Anything I can do at this point? Looks like permissions, but I am not for sure. This didn't happen last time I installed, a little over a week ago.
