    Motion-Triggered Music Player

    I did it in a very different way, and I think easier as well. I installed volumio on Rpi and then installed GPIO plugin, the enabled me to play, pause the music if I short GPIO 17 and +5v. I then ordered a normal motion sensor from market, that works on AC, attached a relay to the GPIO. That relay gets triggered by motion, which in turn shorts the GPIO 17 and +5v on Rpi. So as soon as motion is triggered the AC triggers the relay and music starts, the moment after like 2 mins when motion sensor does not detect the motion it triggers the relay again and music pauses. Then again as soon as I enter the room, motion sensor triggers the relay and music starts from exactly the position it was paused. ....simple yet very effective ... :)

  • Arduino NodeMCU ESP8266 Based WIFI Smart Strip 4 Relay Switch Board With Raw TCP/IP, Mqtt & Android App

    VERY VERY poorly explained and written article ..... pity. And I am not a noob I have done my own Automation Project with Rpi and 4 channel relay and also with sonoff with tasmota firmware communicating with another Rpi running Home Assistant and MQTT server, and THIS myfriend is the worst tut I have even read. Why I landed up here was because I am planning to another project this time based on NodeMCU and 4 channel relay instead of using Rpi and your article did not help at all ....
