Raspberry Pi Device Type & BerryIO

I don’t see any posts that are very recent and wondering if this still works. The installation instructions reference v1 hubs so I’m curious if this is still working/supported.

I just tried to install it on my first Pi, a brand-new 3+

I got this error:

I did some searching and PHP5 that module is not available for Stretch. There are some workarounds, but my advice would be to go back to Jessie and use that as you might solve this problem only to uncover another.


(Eric) #24

Who, or what, is Jessie? I’m brand new to Pi.


#25

Jessie is the version of Raspbian before Stretch. You can still find it on the Raspberry Pi Foundations’s website. however, what are you looking to do with your Pi? Because I am using WebIOPi to control two GPIO pins as switches. It doesn’t work well for sensors but switches respond instantly.


(Eric) #26

I just wanted to be able to see/control it with ST. Nothing specific, just wanted to be able to link it. Is the WebIOPi option still available?


(Dan) #27

Take a look at OmniThing as another option for integrating a Raspberry Pi with SmartThings or Hubitat.


(Eric) #28

I’ve got Omnithings installed. I just don’t know if there’s an actual connection or not. Refresh and Configure don’t seem to do anything.


#29

For what purpose though? just to see the status of your pi? there are a lot better ways to do that than through ST. If you are trying to control the GPIO pins then omnithing or webiopi are your best routes. If you’re trying to send commands to your pi, you can do that with omni thing. But you have to be more specific about what you’re trying to accomplish to get the best help.
