New garden controller I’m working on

Awesome you decided to put up a journal. Your HPA grows and automation setups are top notch and super pro. Thanks for setting up shop.

Can you block Kim Jong Un from launching missiles with that setup? I see you have 3 ethernet ports free 🤔

Could you make all that wireless if you wanted to?
yes but theres no need, the protocols I’m using can go hundreds of meters over wire

But there’s all kinds of radios that could be used depending on what kind of environment it is, how much interference there is etc, or other considerations.

a couple advantages of wire are reduced development complexity, the ability to provide power over the wire negating the need for separate power wiring, and of course reliability

I guess it would only be advantageous if you had to deploy it where you don't require 17,000 ft of cat 6. So like if I wanted to have a completely automated grow in the Humboldt forest I could set up shop in Hawaii and send signals from there.

Oh I can do that already. The wires are just for sensors.

A few miles of cat6 is still way cheaper than hundreds of radios, wireless bridges, and repeaters. There’s also no need to do any kind of site survey or baselining.

for example a typical Indoor wireless setup on a single floor in an office building can be over fifty access points depending on building size, and they’re all connected to some kind of backbone which goes back to some kind of switch. The Aruba access points we were using were about $400 each, and would be the sort of setup you would want if you were managing a network that size

What is the most optimal distance between WAPs for zero dead spot to ensure 99%+ uptime?

Do you use consumer level brands or pro-tier? I have tried to stay away from Netgear routers due to multiple reports of a flaw in root.
I don’t use Netgear. They have an ongoing major security flaw, which they ignored. It was reported more than once, the TLS cert key issue.

it just depends on how many wap need to be managed, if it’s only a few a controller doesn’t make sense. Especially for a soho or something, then consumer grade makes sense, usually two wap, one runs the vpn so they can work from home and gets out through their other router that their fire tv and whatever connects to.

Anxious to see what kind of data you get from the leaf temp sensors, specifically what the differences are between various lighting you have. Pretty sure you dont have any monos but would be interisting to see if you can push leaf temps by using different wv. Coulda used you current sensors yesterday, propylene glycol in hydronic loop started boiling due to pump power supply failure.

I am just a hack when it comes to this stuff but I'd definitely like to beef up my home network at least. Dead spots in the garage and yard. I have an Asus router but I had to go with net gear modem cuz it's the only one compatible with my service for gigabit speeds.

the modem is something you'd have to speak to your provider about, they'll know what equipment is compatible with their CMTS.

For the dead spots, there are a couple solutions available to you in the form of repeaters and different antennae. Usually, soho wap come with dipole.

Got some work done on the new controller. Added in the emergency routine, and finished some more wiring. There's still a ton to do.

I started updating the doser's code, got quite a bit done on that this morning.
