A Pimoroni Automation HAT specifically designed for the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC has now arrived at the Adafruit online store providing an easy solution for those looking to create home automation, hydroponics, light industrial automation, and other projects.
The Pimoroni Automation HAT is compatible with all versions of Raspberry Pi that have the 40-pin GPIO header i.e the 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and the Pi HAT comes fully assembled and ready to fit and use.
Adafruit explains more about its uses :
With relays, analog channels, powered outputs, and buffered inputs (all 24V tolerant), this home monitoring and automation controller allows you to hook up a plethora of goodies to your Raspberry Pi all at once. Better still, each channel has an indicator LED which means you can see what’s happening with your setup at a glance. Even the analog channels have dimming LEDs that allow you to see the value they are currently sensing.
