Re: [NOOB] Light control - where to start?

My approach is make it simple. Once the code is learnt, you can then do automation without the original RF keyboard. You can even use your TV remote, or pir to control the RF light too. If you plan to add more RF switches/lights , all you need to do is learn the code, and then ready to go. No need t...

Re: [NOOB] Light control - where to start?

Hi, this link- http://blog.videgro.net/2016/01/raspber ... l-sockets/ should provide you the basic info to control the light. YMMV. Next thing is to do is set it up with automation software like node-red , and/or homeassistant. Enjoy.

Re: Wifi connection unstable

You may want to try to connect the Pi to a different router, to see if it can improve the performance. From my experience, a router with external antenna works far better than one with internal antenna with the same setup, 3 feet apart. That is my 2 cents.

Re: What is MySQL doing?

Headless system shutdown is possible with Apache. You can build a php page with a button to create a file on /tmp, and use crontab to monitor /tmp. Cron can then perform the shutdown when file is found.

can you try "touch /tmp/xxx.out" instead, and make sure you restart motion.
You can also check syslog for more info.
