I decided to put my RPi and MQTT gateway in one box so made this. First time doing this, so it isnt that perfect. I will soon be adding LEDs to it too.
This is my very first fully functional project! Yay!! Most of the credit goes to mysensors and all the amazing people here. I thank you all.
So, I wanted to control my home appliances/lights with Voice and/or OpenHab rules. I made this relay switch outlet. May not look pretty at all but it surely works with OpenHab and "Ok Google - Turn On Switch" command from my Android phone and Android watch . It also hides behinds the couch, hehe. For right now, I just turns on/off and with commands. I will be setting it up to fully automate with iftt conditions in next few days.
Note: I have used 2 relay module because thats the one I had for now. Also I'm planning to make both female power outlets to operate separately.
Project cost: $7.5 USD including Nano V3.0, Relay, NRF transmitter, power outlet socket, and casing. (Power cable, button, 5.0V charger, AutoVoice, Auto-wear and Tasker not included, I already had them.)
I searched for cheapest required item on eBay and purchased hem.
Nano V3.0 = $2.56
NRF transmitter = $0.97
Relay module (You may use 1 relay module) = $1.3
Female powerOutlet socket + blue casing + faceplate = aprx. $3 from Home Depot.
PowerCable = n/a (used old PC power supply cable.)
Button = n/a (Already had it.)
5.0V charger = n/a (Already had it, just use old phone charger)
Tasker = n/a (Already had it.)
AutoVoice = n/a (Already had it.)
AutoWear = n/a (Already had it.)

Hope you liked my project. Please feel free to comment, post any suggests, and questions.
@raditv @AWI Thats what I thought about On/Off action. I'm trying to on/off mysensors relay actuator. My relay actuator has a physical button. Domoticz detects my relay actuator and also updates the state if I toggle the physical button. But it does not turn on / off the relay actuator from domoticz UI. Any idea why?
