Irrigation Caddy Driver
« on: April 21, 2013, 06:25:02 pm »
Just wanted to give everyone heads up I'm starting work on a driver to integrate Irrigation Caddy into Elve. I've gotten all of the commands down needed to integrate it via network, the driver should have the same functionality as the units web interface/android phone application. Just wanted to ensure no one else started this project so I'm not stepping on toes. I didn't see anything when I ran a few searches.

I'm brand new in the Elve community, I came across the software in my search for a new Software package for my HA system. I tested out the trial for a week or so now, and have really taken to its layout.

Hello Branzol,
And welcome to the forums! Your driver will be a welcomed addition to the irrigation category. I am not aware of anyone doing this driver so you should be good to go. For those who aren't familiar, what is irrigation caddy and what are some features?

I always wanted to be somebody. In retrospect, I think I should have been more specific.
