How to control relay extension board via EVOK?



  • Hi,
    I've bought UniPi 1.1 and extension board with relays.

    How i can control this extension board relays via EVOK API?



  • To make extension relay module (EMO-R8) working with EVOK below steps needs to be done:

    1. Open /etc/evok.conf file
    2. Uncomment relays assigned to EMO-R8:

    Each this line begins with a character ;
    This character must be removed for all lines related to the configuration for EMO-R8:

    ;
    ;Example of 8xRelay extension module addon (EMO-R8) on address 0x21
    ;
    
    [MCP_2]
    i2cbus = 1
    address = 0x21
    
    [RELAY_9]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 7
    
    [RELAY_10]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 6
    
    [RELAY_11]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 5
    
    [RELAY_12]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 4
    
    [RELAY_13]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 3
    
    [RELAY_14]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 2
    
    [RELAY_15]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 1
    
    [RELAY_16]
    mcp = 2
    pin = 0
    
    1. Save /etc/evok.conf file
    2. Restart evok
