Using arduino serial data to control gpio

#1

So currently in my flow im using numbers that are being sent from a arduino to display info on the dashboard. Now what i want to do is use the numbers to turn on or off relays. I currently have a 3 relay board attached to the pi. I ran them by them self and everything works fine. What my goal is to have, if the numbers lower then what i want the relay is off and above its on. I have a node im using for email alerts but it wont turn on the relay from the gpio node. I tried using a switch node but wasnt able to get it to behave like its supposed to.

#2

if you post your flow perhaps people can help you see where you are going wrong

#3

Also what is the relay board?

the board snaps on top using the gpio pins. I got that part working.

First off, add two inject nodes and a 'rpi gpio' out node and connect the inject nodes to the gpio node. In the gpio node select the gpio pin that controls a relay. In one inject node have it send the number 1 and the other send the number 0. Deploy and see if pressing the inject buttons controls the nodes. If it does all you have to do is check your value. If it is greater that N-low send a 1 to the gpio node. If it is higher than N-high send a 0.

So i did what you had said. Put two inject nodes and have one put out 1 and the other 0. That worked fine. I created this node...

Great! So you should be on your way to solving your issue.

I ended up using a function node and got it all to work.
