Raspberry pi question with smartthings


#1

Hi everyone I got a question I need to ask I have raspberry pi 2 for a media center and I’m just wondering if I had smartthings would I be able to turn the pi on and off with the smartthings smart plug

Yup…Removing the power isnt the most graceful way to shut it down but yeah, that’ll work. If you objective is to reboot you pi you should check out this

You wouldn’t necessarily want to shut you rPi off anyway…unless you’ve got a specific reason.

I leave mine on all the time, so that it can periodically update the Recently Added list as new programs arrive, so when we sit down to watch TV, the list is fresh.
