HACKABILITY

While it works out as a Pi Switch out of the box, you can also reprogram it using an Attiny MCU programmer. Code and Guides are downloadable. There is also a package which include both the Switch and Programmer.

Being Hackable, the firmware can be modified so that the switch can be used as an Attiny development board with these functions:

  • One output to trigger relay
  • One output to LED
  • One analog input to detect voltage between 0-5v
  • One input for push button
  • One input for infrared receiver which I have the code to distinguish all the buttons in the remote included
  • One output to trigger an external digital input (pull down)
