I'm a simple programmer and I want to do some simple Home Automation for starters. Like turning of the lights and closing some blinds.
I only have basic knowledge of eletronics. Anyone have some tips on how should I start?
Thank You in advance.
if you get a YWrobot relay, this can be controlled on/off by the 3.3V GPIO pin (although needs a transistor and a couple of resistors to get it to the 5V needed by the relay.minimattapps wrote:I would recommend getting a kit of some sort so you can hook your lights up to a low voltage relay and then turn that on and off with the pi with the GPIO pins, that would probably the easiest way to go about it.
