Having a great time with a ESP8266 connected to 8 channels relay using Tasmota [Tasmota 8.5.0]. Relays connected to D5, D6 and D8 are not working.
Conected devices are not switched on and the relay itself does not click. Changed config in the Module parameters page to used other relays with these pins and they still do not work.
Have been reading around and those are the SPI pins, not sure of what there use is but I will search for information on how to use those pins in my nightly reading.
My questions will be:
- Can i use those pins to operate a 8 channel realy using Tasmota (or better use a 4 channel and call it a day)
- Is there a template that i can use for this to work
- Any work around or alternative firmware i can load that will give me similar control to TASMOTA (web page access, alexa, timer, mqtt).
Thanks in advance for your response and have a great evening.
