Fist step is to select hardware. As Raspberry pi Zero is available to buy in stores, I chose Raspberry Pi Zero W as the base.
I already had a 2.2 inch lcd display from Adafruit, so I am using it for the build. the display is available for purchase, however, you can use any other compatible displays for the build. I like the Adafruit PiTFT as it also has four buttons that I can use.
To control the power to a device, you can use a USB module, and solder it to Raspberry Pi zero, with the 5V power pin controlled by a relay.
