rpi_gpio switch platform allows you to control the GPIOs of your Raspberry Pi.
To use your Raspberry Pi’s GPIO in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry switch: - platform: rpi_gpio ports: 11: Fan Office 12: Light Desk
For more details about the GPIO layout, visit the Wikipedia article about the Raspberry Pi.
Note that a pin managed by HASS is expected to be exclusive to HASS.
A common question is what does Port refer to, this number is the actual GPIO # not the pin #. For example, if you have a relay connected to pin 11 its GPIO # is 17.
# Example configuration.yaml entry switch: - platform: rpi_gpio ports: 17: Speaker Relay
