Quail Coop Keeper (Version 1.1) or QCK'er
find my self working too much and associated stress - my wife suggested I find some sort of hobby to keep me busy instead of TV (I had Finished Game of Thrones ) Being in Minnesota and the weather turning into fall - I decided I will need to something for the Quail coop - timer for light - and something to keep water liquid. Ummmmm - sounds simple but, what could I do to make it..... more - (what would Tim Allen do????)
Raspberry Pi - dual temperature probes, lighting control - low wattage heat lamps... thought I would share the project - and see if anybody has done anything like this?

thanks
tom

Hi Tom,
I agree with your wife! You've got impressive skills. Love that you used Raspberry Pi too!

That's an impressive smart coop!

I'm keeping buttons indoors and we don't get a huge amount of natural light, so have set up hue bulbs to fade in with sunrise and out with sunset. The next step I'm attempting is getting a raspberry pi and trying to sync up the light brightness and temperature with the weather outside.
