WiFi temperature controller project
« on: July 20, 2013, 10:40:21 AM »
Hey all!

A couple of buddies and I have been working on a new open source temperature controller.  Wanted to get some feedback on it.  We are calling it the BrewBit Model-T.  Some of the features are:

* Temperature Profiles - automatically ramp/step your temperatures up or down according to a precise schedule, letting you control complicated step mashes or fermentation cycles.
* PID control - accurate temperature control which automatically adapts to your brewing/fermentation systems
* WiFi enabled - allowing you to log your fermentation temperatures and even control it while you are board at work!

What do you guys think?  Would anyone be interested in something like this?

I've heard the talk for a while now on several forums but temp controls are a dime a dozen.........What happened to the WiFi based automatic gravity reader..................Did you ever actually get one to work ????
