The plan is to build a fully automated system for my indoor and balcony garden. The basic hardware was already in place with some timers and other off the shell hardware, like 'click on click off' and a sensor set from GroThings. That worked, but; Unfortunately our law does not  allow us to grow certain species indoors. End result; all my hardware was confiscated. 

Now i'm switching over to a Arduino Uno r3 with Open Garden Node Board. I am curious to see if i can rebuilt the confiscated parts myself. 
If so, then later i want most items to run on NodeMcu modules. I have a laptop in my electric cabinet that will act as server running Domoticz under linux. 
It would be nice to have all data and controls working there.  Help and ideas are welcome.
