A hat to take control over all your projects
Take control and monitor your world with this ultimate Raspberry Pi HAT is designed for automation!
This home monitoring and automation controller contains lot of goodies with relays, analog channels, powered outputs, and buffered inputs (all 24V tolerant). With the automation hat, you can now hook up a lot of goodies onto your Raspberry Pi.
Even better, each channel has an indicator LEDs which means that you can see what's happening with your project. The analog channels also have a dimming LEDs that allow you to see the value they are currently sensing!
Ideal for automation and smart home projects, giving intelligent sprinklers to your greenhouse, or scheduling your cat feeding!

Pimoroni made a super-simple to use Python library to take advantage of Automation HAT's and its multitudinous functions. Include examples to get you started.
Our input, output and relay examples show you how to read the analog and digital inputs, switch the outputs on and off, and control the relays.
- Pimoroni recommend to use a set of brass M2.5 standoffs with Automation HAT. This will avoids accidental pins contacting with the HDMI port (if the HAT is pushed down).
- Loads for the buffered outputs should be switched on the ground side, i.e. 12/24V (from supply) -> to the load entry -> the load output terminal -> to the ground (from supply)
- The relays can tolerate up to 2A each and should be switched on the high side (between the power supply + sign and the load)
- The sinking outputs can sink a maximum 500mA total across the 3 outputs, so if you use a single channel you can sink the whole 500mA across it.
- Do not use to switch mains voltages!
