Do you need a solution for home automation, hydroponics, light industrial automation, and other related predicaments? Pimoroni's Automation pHAT – the little sibling of the Automation HAT – is the most compact way to take control of and monitor your world!
Pimoroni has pulled together a great set of features into this home monitoring and automation controller. With a relay, analog channels, powered outputs, and buffered inputs (all 24V tolerant) you can now hook up a plethora of goodies to your Raspberry Pi all at once. Ideal for smart home and automation projects, giving your greenhouse intelligent sprinklers, or scheduling your fish feeding!
Compatible with all versions of Raspberry Pi that have the 40-pin GPIO header (3, 2, B+, A+, Zero), but makes a perfect compact package when used with the Pi Zero!
Pimoroni has made a super-simple to use Python library to take advantage of Automation pHAT's multitudinous functions, with examples to get you started. In fact, Automation pHAT uses the same library as Automation HAT, and it uses the presence (or absence) of the SN3218 LED driver chip to autodetect which board (HAT or pHAT) is being used. Nifty!
Their input, output and relay examples show you how to read the analog and digital inputs, switch the outputs on and off, and control the relay.
