[REQ] A physical switch for a remote LED bulb with removable parts to break the circuit Answered

I realise that this might seem like it doesn't have a lot of practical applications but I am trying to replicate a typical puzzle from video games, the 'Fuse Box Puzzle' whereby the lights are off and the hero must solve a puzzle replacing the fuses to illuminate the room.

I have an LE A60 B22 LED bulb which is controlled by a remote control and I would like to create something similar to the attached image whereby the three fuses must be inserted and the switch thrown to light the room. I would rather not install an actual fuse box for this however and would like this to control only the LED bulb.

Does anyone have any idea where I should start with this?

Build a box that plugs into an outlet and supplies power to an extension cord. Are you competent with electricity? If you have any doubts, do a battery circuit.

Then you need an Arduino or a RaspberryPi or any other programmable micro-controller to replicate the LED's remote. I have just published https://www.instructables.com/id/Alohomora-Unlock-the-Door/ recently and that is arduino working with infrared. That is where you should start. Googling how to use micro-controller with infrared receiver and transmitter. So I see it like this :

- Arduino is checking the Lever state on one of its input pin (ON/OFF).

- If it is ON then Arduino transmit an infrared signal to power on the LED.

To do this, first you need an infrared receiver to find out what signal is sent when the "POWER" button on the LED's remote is pressed. Try googling how to transmit and receive infrared signal with any micro-controller you are familiar with. Can't wait to see your project being published on instructables ^_^
