Wall switch control panel

I’m working on a wall box control panel project. The end goal is to be able to replace an existing switch with this device which not only would control the circuit at that location but would communicate with HA over MQTT to control other devices.

Our house is older and mostly lit by lamps instead of lighting fixtures so most of the lights in a room have to be controlled by the automation system. It has become tedious to pull out the phone each time we want to turn lamps on and off. So, this places a control panel for the lamps in a convenient wall box. There are other projects that are doing similar things but I just wanted to share this project for a bit of old school physical buttons. I still have a ways to go to finish it but as it stands the prototype is fully functional. I just need to create the circuit boards and load test the first beta unit.
