I have a RaspberryPi 3 with a GrovePi board and a few sensors and relays hooked up to it. Currently I run everything via a self written PHP/Python script to read and control these sensors. Since GrovePi offers node.js APIs I’m thinking about getting into node.js programming and I’ve just stumbled across pimatic today in search of a home automation application example to look at. Looking at pimatic it seems that it already does pretty much everything I try to develop myself so why re-invent the wheel?
I haven’t found any evidence that pimatic supports grove sensors/actors or the GrovePi extension board. What I have found thou is that people are alredy using the same DHT22 Temperature/Humidity sensors I’m using and found one refenece in the forum to a grove relay. I would say the hardware I have is pretty much the same pimatic supports. So I’m prety sure that integrating GrovePi into pimatic is just a small matter of getting them to “talk to each other” basically. But since I’m totally unfamiliar with pimatic or node.js yet I wouldn’t know how to start doing that myself.
So to ask quite simple. Is there an esay way for me to use pimatic with my GrovePi board and sensors/actors or do I really need to get into node.js codeing myself for that to work?
