im trying to get a relais working. I’ve connected VCC on the relais to 5V on the Pi, connected GND on the relais to GND on the Pi and I’ve connected IN1 to GPIO pin 17 (http://imgur.com/a/kbQXi).
Added the Gpio plugin to pimatic, added the following device:
On the other side of the Relais i’ve connected a light switch, just for the test. Will be using it for the heating but haven’t got a thermometer yet.
For the full wiring , see the pictures in the following imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/kbQXi
When I switch the relais on via pimatic interface I hear the relais clicking, also the power indicator on the relais for IN1 is switching on, so I know there isn’t anything wrong with my connections. However, the light is not switching on. Is 5v too low for a light or have I dont something else wrong?
Would love to have some help on this
