Raspberry Pi Powered Fireplace

Mr Aijay Adams and I am back making my Fireplace Internet / Smart device controllable. Now, via a very sexy Web UI, when I'm heading back to Chateau Tahoe, I can turn my fireplace on to be ready as soon as I walk in the door. Sexy warmth controlled by a sexy custom made API.

  • A goal was to keep the original switch working too, so we can be Cave people as well!
