A bad use or failure of the elements of Open Aquarium (heaters, fan cooler, etc) may vary the ideal living conditions of the fish risking their lives.
Please have this into account when setting the system in your fish tank.
Open Aquarium is an educational and experimentation platform.
Try the system on a fish tank with no fish in it until you get the right conditions and check the system stability during some weeks.
The pack we are going to use in this tutorial is the Open Aquarium platform from Cooking Hacks.
Open Aquarium is fully compatible with Arduino UNO.
Open Aquarium must be powered by an external power supply (12V - 2A).
Open Aquarium has been designed to work with both 220V (Europe) & 110V (US).
To use the RF Power Strip in 110V power setups you just need to use this 110-220V Power Converter.
Open Aquarium gateway communicates with the RF power strip with FSK modulation (Frequency-shift keying) at 433MHz.
Can I use the 433MHz radios included in Open Aquarium in the US? The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates operation at 433 MHz under Regulation 10CFR47 Part 15.231.
