Cool hack. This solution relies on an IoT relay from DLI. DLI makes some great hardware for specific use cases where other options from brand named vendors would cost orders of magnitude more for a similar solution. Finicky, but gets the job done.

Haven't checked out DLI, but the above solution is way overkill, there is no need for any RaspberryPi at all.

No matter. Whatever you can do can be done better with raspberry pi
