Controlling NCDRelay24 with Particle and Node Red


#1

I’m looking for some help controlling my 24 Relay board with Home Assistant. My board has the Photon header and I use Node Red within HA. Can anyone give me some pointers and/or assistance?

Also, is it possible to rename the relays from their numbers to something more user friendly?

Thank you!

So I did install the particle node and have it working. I’m able to turn relays on and off, so that is a success.

Now, I need to know how to create functions that can activate various relays. How do I do that using the existing library? Is it possible to use the relayCommand function within another function?

Hi,

You can call relayCommand from within another function.

To call functions from the Node-Red Particle library (I’m not extremely familiar with the Node-Red Particle library) you should just be able to expose those functions in the code on your Particle module.
