  • Control any remote from a Raspberry Pi (and Amazon Echo!)

    Great tutorial, I just got this working on a Pi Zero to control all five sockets using my Echo. I used the new version fauxmo.py to get it working with all five sockets, just simply gave them different names and ports, and added the necessary script to tell it which GPIO to use to turn each socket on or off. Instead of using relays though I used optocouplers, making the whole project much smaller and allowed me to fit all the circuitry into a small project enclosure. I even built the controller into the lid of the enclosure so that it could be used as a physical backup to turn the sockets on or off. Couldn't have done it without your tutorial.
