Is there a need?
« on: September 06, 2015, 07:37:22 PM »
I was wondering if there was any need to create a DMX Receiver Device to control relays ON/OFF. like these or a solid state relay. I would have to ability to control up to 16 relays. Just wondering.

Relays like these:

It seems like every so often someone is asking how they can control a medium-amperage device with only on/off control.  GPIO on the Pi is one option but I can see a use for some people to have DMX controlled relays. I personally don't have a use right now but I think some would.
