Default computer controled switches

Hi, I'm new here.
Can some one put me on the right track? I'm looking for info/hardware and
software to run a heat-pump by computer, checking in and out temperature and
have the pump work accordingly.
Any hints are welcome
Thanks Richard

Default Re: computer controled switches; Thanks for all the input.

Thanks for all the input, yes I should have been more specific. I was just
tinkering and my fingers did the typing.

We are in a good place for solar energy here and we have above average wind
speed so that would also be an option/addition.
Tinkering about a warm water system, above 60 Celsius could warm up the well
water before going to the boiler and below 30 Celsius could run the floor
heating if needed.
If controlled by computer I can adjust without climbing on the roof or going
to the basement, I can register and save data and adjust accordingly.
With a very low water flow and a big tank I could even do both ( pre "heat"
water and run floor heating from a lower level in the tank) Thought about
making a temporary set-up to determine minimum size and amount of storage.
But I have so much to read and study now that I'll save my questions for
later and work out a more detailed set-up first. We have to rebuild the
house first anyway, but I want to have all options open so I can put in
lines,pipes etc. were needed.
It's good to know that there is plenty of help when needed.

Thanks you all

Richard

Thanks Bill, but here in Forty Plum (forty miles from anywhere and plum in
the middle of nowhere) having a 24000bps connection is fast doing
anything over the internet is boring slow . And I think it's a long detour
to get to my system at 50 yards distance

Thanks
Richard

The literature shows it will work on a Local Area network (LAN), you
do not need internet access to use the thermostat. A peer-to-peer
local network with a router should work.

Ok that won't be a problem, I only have to hang the router on the pc that is
running on solar, good idea, cable is already there for the camera that
checks the horses
Thanks
