You could set up a float switch and only turn on the skimmer when the float switch is in the appropriate position. This would be just like setting up an ATO, but turning on the skimmer instead of the top off pump.At present in my tank ..... when the power came back after failure, my main motor will start first after the 30 seconds my skimmers will start. when my skimmer starts at the time of the main pump ... my skimmer starts to over glow due to water level ... at present to make the 30s delay I'm using time delay relay. ... is there any way I can do this with reef pi. I'm having a separate relay for main motor and skimmer
Translations are a new feature in reef-pi v3. Here is documentation for adding translations. Some of the french translation is already complete, but there are still some gaps.Hello!
I installed reef-pi.
Looking in the files of the github, I noticed that there were translation files. I would like to put in French reef-pi. How to do?
Thank you in advance for the help you will give me!
sorry for my english, it's a google translation!
Let me think about this, i think its a good feature to have. May be some thing along the line of introducing a fixed delay time for all outlets upon startup.At present in my tank ..... when the power came back after failure, my main motor will start first after the 30 seconds my skimmers will start. when my skimmer starts at the time of the main pump ... my skimmer starts to over glow due to water level ... at present to make the 30s delay I'm using time delay relay. ... is there any way I can do this with reef pi.

Irrespective of how you want to use it, the pi based solution will cost more and has the risk of interfering with controller function compared to commodity grade webcams such as Wyze.Im just looking for a camera that can take a pic 3 times a day. Not active monitoring.
But the raspberry pi camera cable is to short and i would like to use a usb camera instead
Pi 4 should definitely help a bit on the graphics performance side. Are you running a full desktop Or just chromium in kiosk mode? You can also use a dedicated pi for the display if nothing else works muchHey all. Been a bit absent from this thread for a while. Shut my small cube (that was running on Reef-Pi) down and moved all livestock to my frag system while I set up my upgraded tank. New tank is 780 x 780 x 1000mm deep (31" x 31" x 39"deep) and is going to run completely on Reef-Pi.
So I have a few questions I want to ask as I go about my Reef-Pi wishlist. Should I ask here or on a separate build thread?
The main one I am getting my head around is applicable to this thread I think : I have a 15" ELO touchscreen that I plan to mount right next to the tank. Yes, I know PC access and phone etc, etc, but I often found in the past that when i was fiddling around the tank and wanted to check something or turn something on or off or whatever, my phone was elsewhere or it's a mission to get out of my pocket. So I want this dedicated screen right next to the tank. I'm currently running it as a test on my old Reef-Pi without any equipment connected to it just to test functionality and I'm happy with performance. But as soon as i connect another device to Reef-Pi (PC, phone etc), Reef-Pi gets very laggy on the touchscreen. Reef-Pi is installed on a Pi3B+ at present. Would upgrading to a Pi4 with 4GB Ram improve this? Or should I just stick with the Pi3.
I'll be starting a main build thread soon.
I'm running the full desktop. ie - standard Raspbian installation with Reef-Pi. I'll look into Kiosk mode and running Chromium though. Can you pointy me to a good tutorial on Kiosk Mode? I'll start Googling anyway.Pi 4 should definitely help a bit on the graphics performance side. Are you running a full desktop Or just chromium in kiosk mode?
