My father has MS and I recently began growing myself in a 2x4 tent which has been such a great experience I want to grow for him as well. We live in Colorado and my mom is spending upwards of 800 dollars a month at the dispensary. It's worth it because my dad went from around 50 pills a day to 14. So I am going to be working with a $1000 to $1500 budget for another tent that I wanted to flower in. I have space for a 4x4 alongside the tent I have now. Thank you for any advice in advance, I just want to make a smart investment that will be not only a good deed for my dad but allow my mom to use that cash towards my little sister or something else. Thank you!

Yeah, 3 month grows, and both the fan and filter still work fine.
I believe a variac is the key to making sure the fan lasts a long time. Be sure you get one when you get your fan.
If stealth is a concern, I'd recommend getting a smart plug that has a remote app. That way, you can temporarily turn off the fans from wherever you're at. It's helpful if your parents are going to stop by, for instance.
Mining while away [R]2 years, 12 months agoSTeaks019 posted submission on Digibyte.

I have my gaming PC with a ROG Asus nvidia GTX 1060 6GB mining digibyte as a hobby while I sleep and while I'm working away for the day. But I have weekend trips coming up and I was wondering if anybody has any advice on how to manage it while I am away. Should I not mine while away, or do you think it will be fine to leave it running for the 72 hours I'm away? I'm still pretty new to the mining operations. My gpu temp stays at a steady 65° C. So it isn't running very hot even after 9 hours straight.

Use Google Chrome Remote Desktop(out for windows only I think). It lets you remotely access your PC from your smart phone(IOS and Android). This is what I do when I leave the house just too keep an eye on things. But be warned that if your PC does go haywire and it gets stuck in a loop with the GPU, this has happened to me but was probably more due to faulty power supply cables, then you won't be able to turn it off since it wont let you access it through the Chrome app.
You can also get a wi-fi smart power socket(like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Orvibo-Socket-Electronics-Anywhere-HomeMate-S25/dp/B00KT50HK4). Hook up your PC to it and if for whatever reason you can't access your PC trough the app you can just remotely shut off the socket.
The socket I provided on there is only so you can get an idea, you will have to find one that can handle the power that the PSU for the PC needs.
This way you have two ways to control your PC and will get some peace of mind.
Wifi enabled heating/cooling for detached garage workshop? [R]3 years, 1 month agoEccentrica_Gallumbit posted submission on HomeImprovement.

I'm buying a new house next month and one of the more exciting things (for me) is I'll finally have a (detached) garage to set up a proper shop. It's in northern Ohio, so I have hot humid summers, and bitterly cold winters. I'd like to set up something for heating/cooling and was wondering if anyone knew any solutions that could be controlled wirelessly.
I know that there are now wireless thermostats for your house, but I don't know of any window unit or standalone heater/AC that will work with a thermostat. Is there anything that might work here? I'd love to be able to kick climate control on an hour before I head out to the garage. In case it matters, it's not a very big garage. Probably 1.5 car or a small 2 car with about an 8 or 9 foot roof. thanks

Not aware of any in-wall units that are capable of this, but you could buy a wifi outlet along with a "dumb" air conditioner to accomplish this. Just have to make sure that it's an A/C that will be on when power is restored (i.e. dials instead of electronic display).

For your fan idea, you could use something like this.
You can easily flash the firmware to something open source, I use this for Home Automation and they work great.
Cheap remote buzzer alarm device/app to notify our DJ when cops pull up? [R]3 years, 3 months agoFeb. 20, 2017
Feb. 22, 2017
Look into a wifi smart plug like this one https://www.amazon.com/Orvibo-Socket-Electronics-Anywhere-HomeMate-S25/dp/B00KT50HK4/ref=sr15?ie=UTF8&qid=1487796987&sr=8-5&keywords=wifi+smart+plug
If you have multiple speakers, have one of those smart plugs connected to each speaker. Whenever the cops roll up, you can pull out your phone and remotely shut off a few speakers instantly.
Remote Switching of 240v outlet? [R]3 years, 5 months agoglass__jaw posted submission on DIY.
Jan. 3, 2017
I'm waiting eagerly for delivery of a new electric 240v space heater for my small workshop here in the frozen northeast. The workshop is right next to the house and within wifi range. The space heater has a thermostat and I'd love to be able to turn it on from inside the house half an hour before going out there. I can think of a few products/methods that would work for 110v, but I'm a bit stumped with 220/240v. Any thoughts?
EDIT: Thanks everyone! This is the unit I'm waiting for: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Dimplex-4800-Watt-Forced-Air-Electric-Portable-Construction-Heater-DCH4831L/203568956?cm_mmc=hd_email-_-Ship_Conf-_-20161230_PP_ET_Merch_Ship_Conf_2988667-_-pip_url__W558307979 and based on your contributions it sounds like the best way is to put a 120v switched contactor on the 240v line to the outlet (using something like this: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Square-D-30-Amp-Power-Relay-Coil-8501CO7V20/202495853) and a wifi enabled switch to close the connection on the contactor. The thermostat isn't an issue - only mentioned it so no-one thinks I'm going to burn the shed down by superheating it.

Beginner question: I just got an enail and had a question about if I should just keep it hot on the rig for the evening or leave it on but off the rig or turn it off after every session (xpost r/cannabisextracts) [R]3 years, 6 months agoslab_slayer710 posted submission on enail.

Hey r/enail! I've been vaping for a couple years and wanted to get an enail. I picked up a high5 with the omron lcd. I've read up on enails and it appears leaving it on is better than turning it on and off after each session. What I am wondering is, if I am going to use it for several sessions over a few hours in the evening, do you leave the enail hot on the rig your hitting it out of or do you pull the enail coil and nail off the rig after each session and leave the coil and nail hot or do you just turn it off an on each session... Thanks in advance!
Dec. 25, 2016
Nah I just turn it on when I get home from work or when I wake up in the morning, and it stays on till I leave or go to bed. If your worried about forgetting to turn it off, I've heard of people using a wifi enabled power switch to remotely turn it off.
Using your echo in a homebrew world [R]3 years, 6 months agosoundzofstatic posted submission on amazonecho.
Nov. 25, 2016
So, I roll my own stuff a lot of the time (eg I run my own email server using zimbra in a VM, so my calendar and todo list are useless with my echo) and was wondering how easy it is to write skills for the echo to make use of things you run locally.
The first one that springs to mind is my "project juke" server, which is essentially a webserver that provides access to the folders I download audio podcasts into, the different folders each have an index.php file in them which will generate an autoplay audio html 5 tag using the latest file downloaded.
This way I currently have the web addresses encoded onto NFC chips stuck to cards and simply bop my phone against them to load the page and auto play that podcast of my choosing.
I'd love to get my echo to load that site and play the mp3 used in the native html 5 audio player, but I'm not sure where to begin or if that's even possible.
Do any of you run services local to your network and if so, how are you using your echo to provide voice control over them?
Nov. 26, 2016
I use the echo and a custom skill to process various functions throughout my home. They range from turning on lamps via Orvibo S20 wifi plugs(generic WEMO plugs), waking up computers from via WOL, to opening a garage door (esp8266-e12 with MQTT subscribe sketch).
From my experience, the only annoying thing has been that unless you set up a 'Smart Skill', you have to say the skills name in your command so the echo knows how to process it, ie. "Alexa, tell Skill Name to do this".
Tutorials I used to get me going:
-Alexa Skills with Orvibo S20 Sockets - this one is more specialized to getting Orvibo S20 online, but it had good sample files (templates) to get your skill running on AWS Lambda if you don't want to use your own server.
Looking for: outlet that shows via wifi whether it's being used. [R]3 years, 6 months agoFlerPlay posted submission on homeautomation.
Nov. 24, 2016
I run a school that uses individual air conditioners/heaters in the rooms, and the teachers keep leaving them on.
I'm looking for a small device that can plug in between the air conditioner and the wall. I don't need to be able to turn on/off the power remotely, but I want some sort of indicator in another room as to whether the device has been left on accidentally.
This could be a small box with LEDs on it, or an app that runs on windows, but I want to be able to see from my office when there is power running from the outlet into the air conditioners. This could even be a simple 'Automatically send me an email if an air conditioner has been left on for more than x hours' thing.
I've found various smart home things, but they mostly seem to be able giving power/removing power from outlets remotely rather than just having an easy to see 'is it on?' function.
On a related question, if I were to get a smart outlet where I could toggle power to the outlet remotely, would it be able to show if the device was in use? Or does it just toggle a switch on the outlet to allow/disallow devices to access the electricity?
Hope this makes sense, and thanks in advance for the help!
Nov. 25, 2016
Instead of the WEMO, just get the Orvibo S20. It's cheaper and does the same thing. You press the button to let energy flow or not, or you use the internet-accessible app to monitor the state and turn it off (or on...maybe you wanna have air-con on as soon as you are on your way home).
Take note of your aircons current rating. These devices stomach 10 amps.
Help: espresso shot diagnosing [R]3 years, 7 months agoYou-get-the-ankles posted submission on espresso.
Oct. 23, 2016
Hi everyone, I'm new to this subreddit, but have been brewing espresso at home for 6 months by now. I have experienced and corrected most of the beginners mistakes, and I feel like i'm starting to know my machine pretty well. However, one problem persists: I keep getting a acidy aftertaste on my shots. The first shot is always the worst and subsequent ones are better (but I rarely make more than one :( ). The shots come out somewhat low volume (about 40 ml from 15 grams) and still have an acidic taste after the initial good coffee taste (I don't mind the low volume though!).
My setup is the new Silvia model (E) and the Rocky grinder. I buy my coffee beans fresh roasted from a local roaster (max 10 days old before i have used it all) and i have tasted these same beans without the acidic by-taste at my roaster. I am thinking that the brewing temp might be too low, but since i have the E model the machine turns itself off if i turn it on in advance, which sucks because I only use it in the mornings and is usually pressed for time. Also the time from I turn it on to it auto-turns off seems to vary somewhat. I'm guessing it changes with temperature and amount of water in the machine.
Does anyone have any good tips or ideas I could try here? :)
Oct. 23, 2016
I second that. Most hardware stores sell wireless outlets that you plug into an existing outlet. Download the app and you can set up when it turns on and off. They make them for lights when you are out of town, but it should work for your machine.
Slave multiple floor lamps to another lamp/outlet. [R]4 years, 8 months agonexusheli posted submission on HomeImprovement.
Sept. 22, 2015
My living room has no overhead lighting and no easy way to install one above. The three-way switches there control outlets on one side of the room, but when those outlets come on, I'd like a lamp on the other side of the room (in an unswitched outlet) to come on automatically. Is there some kind of home automation solution out there that will automatically turn a circuit on when a 3-way switch that it's not wired to comes on?

Have a smart phone?
Save yourself a lot of time and headache and get yourself one of these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KT50HK4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref=ohauidetailpageo02_s01
I now own two; I have one hooked up to my living room lights (My setup is just like yours, lamps on opposite wall from switched outlet) and the other is hooked up to remotely reboot my cable modem.
Setup can be finicky, but it's no more than a few minutes, and once it's setup it works pretty flawlessly on the local network.
