Swimming Pool

I've been working on having control of my swimming pool.  There is very little information on this kind of thing available and Goldline, the manufacturer of my pool controller told me the information was a trade secret.  Trade secret?  That sounds like a challenge doesn't it?  There is a new tab above that describes in some detail the protocol they use and how to implement your own remote control.  Yes, it uses an Arduino.  I've been working on this on and off for a few months and had a few breakthroughs recently so my own control device is in the works and will be hooked into my evolving overall scheme for controlling things around the house.

Trade secret my butt.  This is the 21st century, the era of open source and information sharing.  Gimme a break! Once you put it on the internet, it's there forever.....somewhere.
