Well got up early this morning whilst my wife was fast asleep an out of eye shot .
A couple of holes in the wall, two Ethernet cables, and bingo, volume control on the wall.

   

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party.
And bring your favourite album with !

You look to have a done a very neat job, there - I presume it was a cavity wall with the Ethernet cable dropped through the ‘middle’? Does it act as a neater example of a remote ‘magic eye’?

Simply it allows me to up/down volume without having to pick up my iPad, also allows standby, but Alexa can do the standby also Smile

I just have a smart plug .
For a bit of fun I renamed it to Sneaky.
“Alexa, turn on Sneaky”
“Alexa, turn off Sneaky”
I still have to manage playlists as usual, until linn get involved, I doubt this will happen though.

Just as well you didn't call it "Linn", especially if that happens to be your partner's name Smile
