      Get a Z-Wave socket module of your choosing, plugin a low voltage power supply and connect it to the coil. The Z-Wave module now controls the relay.

      Or look for Z-Wave modules which have volt free contacts and do something similar, not a great deal different to the first approach.

        AC? DC? Voltage? Can you describe the use case?

          Form-C Relays are dry-contacts - do not care what the coil voltage might be - 3.3V, 5 V, 12V, 24 V - any will work. Ideally looking for at relay card/module with a USB or network I/F and a compatible plug-in. Seems simple enough!

          Appreciate the feedback.

            The Arduino plugin can do usb , Ethernet or WIF depending on the board you use and there are lots of relay boards available to.
            Zwave = Z-Stick, 3xHSM100� 7xACT ZDM230, 1xEverspring SM103, 2xACT HomePro ZRP210.
            X10 = CM12U, 2xAM12, 1xAW10, 1 x TM13U, 1xMS13, 2xHR10, 2xSS13
            Other Hardware = ADI Ocelot + secu16, Global Cache GC100, RFXtrx433, 3 x Foscams.
            Plugings = RFXcom, ActiveBackup, Applied Digital Ocelot, BLDeviceMatrix, BLGarbage, BLLAN, Current Cost, Global Cache GC100,HSTouch Android, HSTouch Server, HSTouch Server Unlimited, NetCAM, PowerTrigger, SageWebcamXP, SqueezeBox, X10 CM11A/CM12U.

              I use these:

              I've had them in service for years and they've been flawless.There is more info on the subject of relays (including the scripts I use to control mine) here:
