More relay outputs with Cerbo GX

Hi All,

have a small setup in the caravan and would love to have more than 2 relay outputs controlled from the Cerbo GX. What is the most self-contained way I can do this?


On my system at home, Node Red running on the Venus GX can control my zigbee relays over MQTT, but this setup requires I have a network router and zigbee bridge running all the time. At home, this is not a problem because they are in constant use by the smart home devices anyway, but in the caravan, I'm trying to minimize how much stuff needs to be left on.

Your input is much appreciated.

Many thanks

With the Cerbo you can run the Venus OS Large and have NodeRed and MQTT broker running on the Cerbo, so no IP router would be required. What sort of Zigbee bridge do you use, is there a bridge you can connect to the Cerbo over USB ?
