Here is a description, that was provided by a great forum to modify the GreenIQ Software


So if you follow these steps, you can install Sprinklers_pi on the RaspberryPi of the GreenIQ (Gen 2).

This tutorial involves opening the GreenIQ and unscrewing the scrwso of the body and the electronics in order to gett access to the SD Card.

With those links you will gett further information and details to the installation steps in order to install the program.

  1. Remove the SD-Card from the GreenIQ Device and put it in your computer´s SD-Card Slot
  2. Download the Operating System (OS) for the Raspberry. https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_lite_latest 9

  3. It is a ZIP File so you will have to unzip the file before going on.
  4. Install the Operating System on your Raspberry GreenIQ. Therefore you will use the following Software to copy the image of the operating system on the SD-Card. (You can either use a new SD-Card one or the one that is in the GreenIQ but you will lose GreenIQ software). Etcher 10 is a good software to install the operating system.

  5. Activate SSH by creating an empty file called ssh on the /boot partition. Just go on the SD-Card´s Filemanager, make a right click and generate a new text file. Name it ssh and remove the .txt part.  Raspbian with SSH tutorial - Hackernoon 10

  6. Put the SD Card back into the Raspberry and connect to the power. Connect the Raspberry to your Network. SSH into the freshly installed Raspbian by finding it’s IP from the router or any other tool. Go to your Router, for example Fritz.Box and find the IP Adress of the Raspberry.

  7. Install the software SprinklersPi as in the steps below or in SprinklerPi Installation 13

  8. Install as first thing the software Wiring Py (source http://wiringpi.com/download-and-install/ 3)
    wget https://lion.drogon.net/wiringpi-2.50-1.deb
    sudo dpkg -i wiringpi-2.50-1.deb

  9. Install dependencies
    sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev build-essential

  10. Download the last version of SprinklersPi (check latest on Releases 4)
    wget https://github.com/rszimm/sprinklers_pi/archive/v1.4.0.tar.gz
    tar -xzvf v1.4.0.tar.gz

  11. Compile
    cd sprinklers_pi-#.#.# (Replace # with the version you downloaded)
    sudo make install

  12. Start SprinklersPi usingsudo /etc/init.d/sprinklers_pi start

Here you go! The web interface is accessible if you put the IP of your GreenIQ in the browser and add tha :8080 to adresst the Port. Rebooting helps, if it doesn´t work on the first time. 

Make sure you choose Direct Positive in the SprinklersPi settings

Please refer to the SprinklersPi Wiki 6 for further configuration settings, including weather provider configuration. Please note that the mapping zone to cable color changes as in this post:

Sprinklers_Pi offers many features including a web interface, scheduling, manual control, weather adjustments to cite a few.

I installed it on the Raspberry in the GreenIQ and the valves are reacting normally. The valve mapping is a bit different though, the wiringPi GPIO naming is used and the zone number corresponds to the GPIO number (e.g., Zone 1 will trigger GPIO 1). GPIO 0 corresponds to the master/pump valve. The complete mapping is found below:

Sprinklers Pi Zone wPi GPIO Cable 1 color GreenIQ Valve #
Master/Pump 0 Brown 2
1 1 Red 3
2 2 Yellow 4
3 3 Green 5
4 4 Blue 6
5 5 Orange Master
6 6 White (Cable 2) Light
7 7 White 1

Concerning control from Hass, something can be done using the API it offers.


I hope it helps to get some of the devices back to work, any imput is appreciated!
