    More progress before the night is over. I was able to make a prototype just to check if the design will work. And it did. Exactly the way I designed it.
    In the video, when the red LED strip lights up momentarily, that means the switch was pushed.



    I would also like to try the solenoid push-pull switch before I finalize my project.

    google aiy board can voice control motors and servos

    Control a motor with the AIY projects Voice HAT - The MagPi MagazineThe MagPi Magazine

    the servo pins are showing near the batteries,, you need to solder on some pins
    Cool, might have to get me one of those. Hmm, a Google assistant that follows me around the house. With a Robot Arm on it.

    Keep an eye on the stopping position of you motor / plunger thingy. If it slowly drifts out of position you may end up in a situation where it stops with the button held down.

    Yeah,I saw that as a possible issue but it won't be the end of the world...haha...
    Anyway, I was able to actually test it on my PC last night. And also ordered the solenoid thingy and should be here tonight.

    Now you just need a second one to turn your monitor on off.

    Haha... those monitors actually go to sleep when there's no signal from the PC.

    To answer your question alpha, yes Google Assistant can control GPIO on RasPi.

    Yeah was looking at the link Jack posted. I will likely download that MagPi, if I haven't already, and have a read to see what it can and can't do. Price isn't too bad, about 37 Canadian. Not counting shipping etc. I'll likely buy one down the road some time. I have other things on my "I want" list I want first though.

    The solenoid switch I ordered last night was delivered at my door at 8:30 this morning.
    I have another hardware to fiddle with tonight...
