Home Automation Controller with Yun?

Post by tarrinr » Wed Oct 29, 2014 3:05 pm


I love your most recent episode about the Home Automation Controller, and I'm excited to get one set up for myself.

I have a few questions. I would like to do this, but instead of being connected to the network by ethernet, I would like it to be wireless. Is this the Relay8 shield compatible with the Arduino Yun?

If so, would I be able to power the relays through the yun?

Thanks for your help!

The RELAY8: shield is compatible with the Arduino Yun, however it would be best to use external power for the relay coils.
