 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi every one, I'm new to Arduino, can any one suggest what board I will need for my project ,  I'm making a sprinkler timer, It will need a clock that can be adjusted, a timer that has a start time and stop time that is adjustable that will trigger an output, a manual start input and a manual stop input, thank you can't wait to get into it

Cheers Frank smiley

A Uno is the obvious choice. It is cheap, versatile, convenient, and more than  up to the job.  You may find the on board timer facility is sufficient.

If you like to control it over IP network / internet a arduino mega is a better choice because of it's bigger memory available. Just combine it with a W5100 ethernet shield for that.
