So my rocks, soil and some odds and ends are on their way, I'm super excited.
The customer service has been really great so far at ADG and definitely worth the wait.
I've been looking for a timer and saw this WeMo
home automation switch from belkin. I know its a bit $$$ but I'm a dork and really like tech stuff like this. It was really easy to set up and connects to wifi and my smart phone via the net. I can use my iPhone to set the timers and turn the device on or off manually. You can program "rules" for different devices and monitor if they are on of off when away from home. Will be testing for the next few days on my smaller tank so we shall see...
