About this app

Raspberry PiRelay - The easy way to Switch Relays using the GPIO Pins on a Raspbery Pi. Control anything from 1 to 100 Relays connected to between 1 and 10 different RaspberryPi's

1. First run the following 4 commands on your RaspberryPi:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wiringpi apache2 libapache2-mod-php -y
sudo wget https://pirelay.jasonfindlay.com/downloads/gpio.dl
sudo mv gpio.dl /var/www/html/gpio.php

2. Download PiRelay App

3. Set your Pi IP address in PiRelay app settings.

Tip: Run command ifconfig on your RaspberryPi to find it's IP address.

PREREQUISITE: You must have a Raspberry Pi to use this ap (i.e. https://www.raspberrypi.org/) and then follow the set up procedure to install the software onto your Pi.

PiRelay is the original and best app for use with Raspberry Pi's running the PiRelay software to Switch or Pulse the GPIO pins on up to 10 Raspberry Pi's with Switch/Pulse control of up to 100 Relays/GPIO pins.

This app can be used to control virtually anything that uses an electronic switch to operate.

For example: Switch on/off Lights, open/close Electronic Garage Doors, open/close Gates, Unlock Doors, Control Heating, Cooling etc.. Anything you can think of that you might want to control, if you can wire it up, PiRelay can control it.

Not only is this the best app for the job, the person developing it is just as awesome!!! App works like a charm and perfectly does what I need it to do. Currently switching 285 low voltage lights for a light show using 4 PiRelay boards and its perfect!!! Seriously couldnt ask for more. When i hit some trouble the developer not only responded quickly but nicely helped me all the way until it worked. Seriously - its the best made by the best!

I've been using this app for several years now and it's proven to be quite solid! I have it controlling a RPi 3b+ which operates 2, 8 channel relays. It's easy to set up and use and if there's any issues with it, there's probably something wrong with your network or it's user error, lol! I don't have the need yet, but you can even set-up multiple Pi's with multiple relays and control virtually your entire house! I literally use this app daily for my room lights, neopixels, stereo equipment, ventilation fans, computer cooling fans, lava lamp, etc. I highly recommend this app! Have fun!

Thanks so much for your honest review Sean. I'm really pleased to hear you have been making the most out of the app, controlling multiple pi's and multiple relay boards. That's what this project is all about for me..

Great app. Really good and easily configurable. It be good if you could set a timer on the relays. I.e. if I set the sprinklers to turn on, it be good to automatically turn off after a set time. That type of feature would fully complement the app.
