About This Project
My name is João Duarte, I’m an IT Consultant at full time and this is my first project using cayenne
Here i’m describing how to build a box where you can plug devices, and with the aid of a Raspberry PI and Cayenne, you can control anything you like from anywhere.
Please let me know if the instructable (or my english) aren’t clear enough so I can edit it.
Raspberry Pi Zero
Itead 2x Relay Module
2 European Outlet
Triggers & Alerts
So far I’m not using triggers and alerts, but the project is very scalable so you can add it. For example to be notified about the status of a device.
I’ll use this feature for sure but I’m still waiting for more hardware. The plan is to schedulle a Bird UV Lamp to be on from 9:00 to 18:00.
Photos of the Project
The enclosure was built only using reclyced materials I found around.
Assemble all the frames except the top one with screws.
Drill two holes where you will fix the outlets
Fix the Outlets
Pimp it as you like xD ( I added some supports on the bottom and a puller on the top)
Follow the diagram attached in order to wire everything as it should.
I recommend some extra caution here since the relay will be used to turn on and off devices that uses 230V AC.
Don’t forget to check everything before you plug it to the wall, and if you have any questions or doubts please message me before you try it!
See it working!
