Who is behind PiMIO - the Story?
PiMIO was created by accident:
We were all sitting together for lunch shortly before Christmas 2014. One of our colleagues, Daniel, currently renovates his house and told us about his project. He wanted for his wife to be able to turn on the hallway and garage lights through her phone via the Pi. He complained, though, that all common devices are too expensive and can not process 230 V input voltage.
We thought about it for a moment and the lights went on. The solution to this problem was only two rooms along, as we were constructing a Multi-Input-Output module for Embedded System. Thus, the idea for a Pi add-on for the normal household had been born.
