As some of you know ive been planning to get this idea rolled into the community for a while and ive finally found the time to do so . . .
As many of you will know the average Aquarium keeper spends a fortune creating and maintaining there setup . . . that is a lot of financial investment to have wiped out by a quick ammonia spike or issue with the aquarium . . .
The team over at Seneye (www.seneye.com) have come up with a genius bit of kit to help monitor this, it even includes email & text notification and a nice app for mobile use . . .
Wouldn’t it be great to integrate that into SmartThings and be able to automate devices/things in response to the SenEye’s data . . . i believe they want the same thing as they have created a nice API for there system (https://api.seneye.com/)
The issue is . . . im an ideas/design guy and have little to no experience with coding, so although i can create nice mockups and demos as shown below im looking for people who share an interest in this and would be interested in working with me on the project, i will also be getting in touch with seneye to see if there developers and team are interested in getting involved also to speed this up or help where needed.
The idea of then been able to trigger events based on the data received from your SenEye unit would open up a massive chamber of useful solutions, for instance.
If “PH” Reads above the value of "" then turn on "___ "
(SmartPlug powering a loud AirPump you don’t want on all the time for instance)
If “Temperature” Reads above value of “____” then turn down Thermostat
(To speed up the cooling process and support a chiller to keep a steady temperature)
If “Out of water” alert is sensed, trigger water valve to " close"
(Ideal for pumps fed water from a sump etc, to lower flood issue in worse case senario)
If Ammonia reads above"____" flash light “red” & send push notification with the following message "__"
(visual alerts to a possible aquarium crash)
If ammonia reads above “___” make “sonos” dictate message " your aquariums Ammonia level is at a critical level, please see to aquarium"
(spoken word warning of the above)
The list goes on and on and on . . .
