  • Home control with a controllino and AllThingsTalk about 17 hours ago

    Hi Yan,
    - The other parts are optional, most of them are relays to have extra switches on the 220V AC lines. The item above the controllino is a box of fuses, to put between the various lines parts and power lines.
    - the controllino differs from the m-duino in that the controllino has 16 220V AC relays and 16 24DC outputs on board, while the m-duino only has 24V DC outputs (so you need those extra relays like I used in order to switch lights connected to the 220V AC system).
    - so, yes the contrillino can switch 16 220V outputs directly, you can have 16 more if you use additional relays.
    - you can use basic analog two way switches, no unique numbers to assign.

    • The controllino is indeed not the cheapest device, but it's actually great value for what you get if you do the math: 16 * AC,6A, 220V relays + 20 * 24V,DC inputs and outputs + the time to solder it all together, don't weight up against the cost of the controllino. I actually started out with the idea to make such a box myself, but after drawing up the wire diagram, I was extremely happy to find an already pre-made device.
    • The RPI is a bit of a contrast against the controllino in that it is far more a proto type device compared to the controllino. The choice for this device is more a bit of a convenience and temporary solution. The pygate software is pure python and basically runs on anything that can handle python 2.7. It's already run on several other systems like beaglebone, regular linux and windows boxes, but also pro-gateways. That's where the convenience part comes in: I'm actually sort of waiting until one of those pro-gateways becomes available in the correct form (support for z-wave), so that I can replace the rpi with a more robust gateway, but still with the same soft.
    • That said, the great thing about the library that I used is that it works in the same way regardless of your hardware choice: do you want to use a controllino or make your own version, use an RPI or a pro gateway, they just work together.
