Modern pools have more features, and need to control more valves, pumps and accessories. The RAVE (Relay And Valve Expansion) Interface allows coordinated control of additional valves and relays when the pool controller's own ports are full. Coming Spring 2018!

Intesis IS-IR-WMP-1

Intesis WMP Gateway for Vera Home Automation is my most-recent plugin for Vera systems. It's an interface to Intesis air conditioning controls that communicates using their WMP protocol. Check out my other Vera plugins as well.

I made this cool Arduino-based RGB LED strip controller as a teaching tool for my young sons. They practice coding by creating patterns for the LEDs (visual feedback for their efforts). It has worked out so well, I published it on YouTube and made my first-ever Instructable.

Welcome! This is the web home of my many projects. My name is Patrick Rigney, and I'm an entrepreneur and technology geek with over 35 years experience in high-tech. These days, I've hung up my tie and have gone back to my technical roots, doing projects for personal enjoyment, primarily, and occasionally for remuneration (but it still has to be fun). Feel free to browse, of course. If you're looking for something specific, see the navigation menu at the top of the page, or use my contact form to drop me a note and just ask.
