Raspberry Pi Joystick controlled relays

 
I'll show you how to control USB Web Relays via USB Joystick
 
Needed 
1 RaspberryPI
1 USB joystick
USB 485 relay
recommend install Raspbian
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

C Code

/* read the joystick state */

                        if(button[0] > 0) {f = popen("exec bash myscript.bash", "r");}
 
printf("  \r");

}
 
close( joy_fd ); /* too bad we never get here */
