    Hi. I'm new to all this automation things but I would like to learn more about it.
    I have a raspberry pi 3 b+ with a 8 channel relay. I installed blynk and it works perfectly fine but the problem I'm having is that the on switch is off and the off switch is on a d when the pi reboots all things connected to the ralay goes on. Any advice on how to solve this??
