Will do! i may add a I2C RTC to the board- there are pinouts already there for it, to keep time when power is lost. Most have built in backup batteries (button cells) which would eliminate the need for making a backup battery, and would mean network would only be needed when uploading schedules or checking on status.
I'll keep you all updated, probably be ordering the controller within a few weeks since I start my new job Nov 15
