The Raspberry PICO HW works out fine. By adding a 2-channel relay board, which is optically connect and directly controlled, the unit makes sense. Although the switch from Python to microPython had a learning curve, it was small. 

Oh, the HW... 

H = pre-soldered header pins

W = WiFi included

...and only $15? Heck yeah
