What is the RemotePi Board ?

The RemotePi Board is an intelligent infrared remote controlled power switch for the Raspberry Pi. It is mainly intended to remote control and power off/on a media center system or game emulator (i.e LibreELEC, OpenELEC, OSMC, RasPlex, Raspbian, Volumio, RetroPie, Recalbox ...). Imagine making your media center or game console build easier, more convenient and more intuitive to use for all members of your family !
With the IR capabilities, firmware upgrade functionality and the configuration tool the RemotePi Board is likely the most advanced power controller add-on board available for the Raspberry Pi.

  • Power Control

    Give your Raspberry Pi a break, it does not want to be on all the time ! Use almost any standard remote (TV, DVD, Media Center, Universal etc.) or the pushbutton on the RemotePi Board to power your Raspberry Pi on and off. The OS is cleanly shut down and Raspberry Pi power is completely cut off. The RemotePi Board uses a MOSFET electronic switch (not a mechanical relay) with a soft-start circuit to avoid voltage spikes when powering the Pi on.

  • Control OS via Remote

    The RemotePi Board enables you to navigate the the user interface of LibreELEC, OpenELEC, OSMC, RasPlex, XBian, etc using standard LIRC or the newer GPIO IR driver. Select videos or music, start and pause playback, etc. all intuitively with your remote. Significantly increase the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) by not having to use those inconvenient smartphone apps or CEC anymore.

  • Easy Installation

    Easy to install, fully assembled, no soldering necessary. Piggybacks onto the Raspberry Pi, no Raspberry Pi hardware modifications required.

  • Free your USB

    The RemotePi Board does not occupy a USB port. In addition only 3 GPIO ports are required, all the others are free to use for other add-on cards, for example DACs.

  • Upgradable Firmware

    The RemotePi Board Firmware is user-upgradable ! Get future new features for free !

  • Customizable

    Power-on LED is too bright for you ? Dim it ! Do you want the RemotePi Board to automatically switch on the RaspberryPi after a pre-defined time interval ? Set the power-on timer ! Use the Configuration Tool to configure these and many more options of the RemotePi Board.
