gpiozero 1.4.0

A simple interface to everyday GPIO components used with Raspberry Pi

Package Documentation

A simple interface to GPIO devices with Raspberry Pi.

Created by Ben Nuttall of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Dave Jones, and other contributors.


Component interfaces are provided to allow a frictionless way to get started with physical computing:

from gpiozero import LED
from time import sleep

led = LED(17)

while True:

With very little code, you can quickly get going connecting your components together:

from gpiozero import LED, Button
from signal import pause

led = LED(17)
button = Button(3)

button.when_pressed = led.on
button.when_released =


The library includes interfaces to many simple everyday components, as well as some more complex things like sensors, analogue-to-digital converters, full colour LEDs, robotics kits and more. See the Recipes chapter of the documentation for ideas on how to get started.


GPIO Zero is installed by default in Raspbian Jessie, available from To install on Jessie Lite or other operating systems, including for PCs using remote GPIO, see the Installing chapter.


Comprehensive documentation is available at Please refer to the Contributing and Development chapters in the documentation for information on contributing to the project.
