I am working on a WLED project, using a esp32 in a 3d printed enclosere. But my dad says that i can’t install it because it is not UL listed. He is worried if the house burns down, the insurance company won’t insure it due to diy electronics possibly starting a fire. What am i to do, i am not developing a project to sell?

    I’d challenge the restriction. I doubt that everything in the house is “UL listed”.

    That said, the fear and concern is real. It’s why many such products run on 5 or 12 volts.

    I’d also check if you are actually switching mains power, rather than sending a separate control signal to the WLED.
