  1. I am looking for a cheap ethernet interface board that I can program on it
    and run by ethernet cable. I would like to have 8 output for 8 zone and some
    input and output for switch and LCD. I am planning to use it for water
    sprinkler. I would like setup the time on computer and send it to the
    etherboard board to control 8 zone. I would like to check it when I am at
    work or home.

  2. CIRCUIT CELLAR has lots of similar projects from time to time.

    Many thanks,

    Do you have existing wirings for it?
    Keep in mind that the controller needs
    to be close enough to your broadband router,
    capable of driving 24V valves and
    far enough from the moisture from sprinklers.

    Additional considerations are:
    temperature and moisture sensors,
    color imaging (i.e. brown vs. green).

    We have a customer using a video camera
    to detect motion near the driveway and
    of course checking the color of the lawn.

    What transfer rates do you need?
    Power consumption on nodes?
    Budget for nodes/cable?
