Power strip for Raspberry PI

by mohitmathew on Fri Nov 02, 2012 11:16 am

I am just throwing out an idea that I think will be useful for anyone trying to do a home automation project with Raspberry PI.

Say if you want to control 4-5 electrical items with the pi you need to buy a relay unit and then connect to the pi cobbler and then the power plugs etc. Its doable but difficult to do it safely.

I did this recently and put together things in a box . I had a 4 relay unit but used only one of them for the fear of something going wrong with all the wires cris crossing in the box.

I will be nice if Adafruit can assemble a power strip which takes a standard power cable input and has cobbler to connect to pi . relays and other things can be all internal to this power strip.

just an idea. I would have bought one if one was available.

Thanks for the product suggestion. I will bring it up with the team.
We do carry the PowerSwitchTail. It only switches one AC line, but all the high-voltage is safely enclosed.
