GPIO controll...

Post by YT1NIV » Wed Apr 25, 2018 8:05 am

Hi,

it would be nice feature to have a few controllable GPIO pins the way we control reboot and shutdown.. I mean trough private calls.. And status of them, of course..

Best regards,
Ivan

To what end use? What do you have in mind ? What external resources are you looking to switch?

I will use them to turn off analog controller at the same repeater, to eventually reboot router if it fails at some time, and so on... Many things can be done.. As the repeater (mmdvm+analog) is at the hilltop, i do not have chance to go there every now and then, and this would save a few trips to there...

Anything on GPIO control?

I can make it with manual mmdvmHost compile and with Kim's dashboard, but I think that pi-star is a liiitle bit better...

Also, tried to install vcgencmd to see temp and other stuff, no joy...

It is certainly possible, adding the commands to cope with it to the remote control is possible, so you could indeed use the radio to turn the Christmas tree lights on and off.

the "gpio" command (part of WiringPi) is already onboard.
