Hello,everyone.Recently,i found the DockerPi of 4 Channel Relay also could operate by Microsoft Azure.I believe that there is no doubt that you have a account of Microsoft Azure.You could use it almost full function for one year.So if you still don't know this,go to sign up and buy a DockerPi 4 Channel Relay Board,then follow me how to use it by Microsoft Azure.Through this simple tutorial,you can use your ability to realize smart home

Firstly,let us look how to install it to raspiberrpi 

It is very easy to install,you just need to insert their 40pin pins into it.

Please turn off the power when you are installing them.

Go to the following directory:


Then open the and add some codes:

Change to the following codes on the picture:

From the codes we can know we could use to transmit "5" to shutdown all the Realys:

At the same time,you could  see all the Relay's LED has been turned off.
