I can imagine all sorts of uses for Phil Tucker’s motion-detect sprinkler home defense system.

Testing a motion activate sprinkler. A TRENDnet IP camera triggers a GPIO output read by an Arduino which then triggers a relay/solenoid valve to turn on a sprinkler. IP camera already records video and sends email alerts.

    What is the part that connects the hose to the valve? Is it a standard part from a hardware store? Thanks.
