Thanks xc0xbc! I really appreciate it.
As for the automation, it's still in a paper phase. In the past few weeks I've picked up the Raspberry Pi 2 that will be the brains of the system and a 7" TFT Touchscreen that will display and be a basic interface to some of the features. I've got the touchscreen up and running, but I'm stuck in the design phase of the physicals right now. I hate to say it, but I'm stuck when it comes to the enclosure. I know I need to have a relay board on there and I've found a perfect isolated Arduino sensor board... But it's ARDUINO specific and not compatible with RPi... I probably could get it working, but I'm not a software developer let alone a driver level developer. I'm actually going to order the 16 port relay board tonight and see if I can get the RPi talking to an Arduino Mega or Arduino Uno to get the isolated board to log the data and transfer it to the Pi.
If anyone on here is an Arduino or RPi user pleaseeeeee let me know. I'm a novice at that stuff so I'll take any input I can get.
