Pimoroni have 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!
As ever, we've 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 autodetct which board (HAT or pHAT) is being used. Nifty!
Our 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.
