Hi Cloudbr34k,
Welcome to your new home here, if you are that interested, we may find you here often.

Before we suggest, could you please let us know if you would be building the required circuit on own or you want to buy from available ones in the market?

Im not technically minded so i would be buying one :slight_smile:

Hi,
Sorry I was away so couldn’t reply, if you want, you can buy compatible switches like Sonoff and make use of lots of tutorials available online to get it work with Hassio.
