Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.1 on Raspberry Pi 3

Hi - great resource! Thanks!

My 6 year old wants minecraft from Santa so I was going to set this up. I was wondering what controller I should get? We have no console in the house so she is not used to anything in particular. If there was something minecraft themed then all the better! Ho ho ho!

Re: Circuit design help (home heating)

To clarify further - I only have UFH downstairs. This is the 8 zones with the relay thermostats. I also have one zone upstairs for radiators. This is where I am putting in z-wave TRVs. This zone is also controlled by one thermostat that I will probably get rid of and allow the pi control direct. The...

Re: Circuit design help (home heating)

Bud: Many thanks for the replies. Just to clarify though that my current stats do not feed back the temp - They just activate a relay when they need heat (twin cable that allows current when heat needed - at moment that is 240V but I tested 3.3V and it was switched too) - each is programmed separate...

Re: Circuit design help (home heating)

My boiler is oil. Pretty sure there is a thermostat in there too so even if I left it on 24/7 it would not stay lit. Am in Ireland so pretty much similar rules to the UK.

Re: Circuit design help (home heating)

I already have those relays. I want the pi to be the PLC. Not have a separate one. Also I don't think I can have an expander board due to the razberry dongle taking the pins already. Basically I was hoping to replace current setup with a pi. Also z-wave is only for one zone. And is the trivial part ...

Circuit design help (home heating)

Hi, I'm ok (in my own view!) at electronics but there are probably lots of better ways of hacking together what I try and do hence I will ask here. I am setting up a pi (B+) to use domoticz to control some z-wave thermostats. I also want the pi to control the boiler and 10 other zones (8 underfloor ...
