This Ultimate Zelda Fan Controls His House with an Ocarina

You think you’re the ultimate Legend of Zelda fan? Sure, your walls might be decked out with all of the games and merchandise out there, but can you control your house using an IRL Ocarina?

I didn’t think so!

Allen Pan, known on YouTube as Sufficiently Advanced, uses an Ocarina to control parts of his home. Everything from unlocking his door to turning on the heat is controlled by the device, with his Raspberry Pi-based system recognizing specific tunes from Ocarina of Time.

And, yes, he uses the “Sun’s Song” to turn on the lights.
