Twitch Grows Peppers - Live Growroom Control Via Twitch Chat!

[ The What ]

    Is there someone out there really crazy enough to let the twitch community control the fate of his pepper plants? Yes, I'm that crazy bastard!  As many of you may or may not know I have been hard at work the past few months working on open source growroom automation software.  This software is called HOBloom and can be found at my github page linked above.  I decided to have a little fun with this and setup a small tent and allow the public to interact with the environment via twitch chat.  You can issue a command into twitch chat and every one minute, the bot will tally up all of the votes and announce a winner.  It will then do whatever the winning action was rather it be running an appliance on or off or raising/lowering the humidity thresholds.  Below I will go over all of the available commands and what they each do.  Feel free to check out the stream and try entering them in chat yourself to cast your vote!  Remeber the bot counts votes every minute so it may take up to that time for you to see the results of the voting round.  The dashboard should then update within thirty seconds to show the new changes.  You can find the live stream here.

[ The Commands ]

    Below is the list of available commands at the moment.  Leave a comment if you have ideas for more controls you would like to see and I will be sure to get them in there!

  • !turnonlights - Turn on the lights
  • !turnofflights - Turn off the lights
  • !raisemaxh - Raise maximum humidity by one percent
  • !lowermaxh - Lower maximum humidity by one percent
  • !raiseminh - Raise minimum humidity by one percent
  • !lowerminh - Lower minimum humidity by one percent
  • !turnonfan - Turn on circulating fan
  • !turnofffan - Turn on circulating fan
  • !turnonexhaust - Turn on exhaust fan
  • !turnoffexhaust - Turn on exhaust fan

[ Wrap Up ]

    This is going to be a fun little social experiment and I would be thrilled to have you be a part of it!  Come in try the commands and watch the progress of the plants from day to day!  As always thank you for reading and happy growing!
