RFLink arduino GPIO

Post by tooomF » Thursday 22 February 2018 15:01

Hello,

I have an RFLink connected to Synology NAS with domoticz installed.
I would like through a virtual switch in Domoticz to pilot a relay directly plugged on RFLink arduino GPIO.
Is it possible?

I have searched adn was not able to find anything. I can find how to pilot GPIO for raspberry when rflink is linked to it but nothing to manage arduino GPIOs.

Thanks

In theory you can load other arduino code on the RFLink, if I remember correctly.

But I'd recommend installing Domoticz on a Raspberry Pi Zero (W). Because Domoticz keeps your Synology awake 24/7, wearing down your harddrives. It's better to get a $10 piece of hardware instead, and save your $300 Synology that way. The Pi also has its own GPIO ports, and plugins like SYSFS Switches which let you do what want really easily.

Hi,

RFlink has a mini-gpio solution see:

it lets you control the gpio pins just like you were using a RF remote control set.

Thanks for the advice. I am new to domotic and beginning with my Synology was easier. I am progressing step by step. But you rationale make sense and I will investigate on how works a raspberry.

I will play with that functionality. It was in front of my eyes when I went on rflink webpage and didn't notice it.

@tooomf: I started with Synology too, but really really like my Raspberry Pi Zero W for running Domoticz.
