i am new here. I have a background in systems and electronics from school, but long time since i write code or fiddle around with hardware…
I have a project that i would like to work on and have no idea on how i can do it.
I need to control via wifi a water refilling station and a laundry shop which i own in the Philippines.
I basically need to be able to measure water level in 2000L tanks, operate pumps through APC, open and close valves, measure and record water flow.
I need to be able to have a system synoptic drawn on a computer screen where i can see the status of my system in real time, and i have seen how easy it is to implement with Cayenne…
The further step would be to write the code that automates the switching of pumps and valves based on sensor data.
Can i do this with Arduino and Wifi module ? I read that Cayenne is not compatible with the Arduino with WIFI version… has this been corrected ?
Can i program my Arduino and Cayenne remotely via wifi even if they are installed remotely ?
Which sensor can i use for water level, water flow, water pressure, and which valves i can use to be controlled by arduino ? I have seen that in Cayenne its possible to import own sensors, cause i have some existing water level sensors that read a current and i have no idea on which datasheet i have to provide to Cayenne in order to make system integration…
Sorry for the many questions but i have no idea where to start, and i see the many basic quick start guides do not help me much.
I would need to know where to find the material to study so i can understand if i can do this thing.
Hope to get some clue on where and what to start to study in order to make this happen in particular of which kind of version of Arduino i need to get started…
