Using a Pololu Maestro to switch a relay

I build model ships, military, and I have been using the Pololu Maestro to have gun turrets rotate by using servo motors… you know, a bit of action happening… I also have a ton of micro leds over the ships and to date have been using a switch to turn them on or off… and now I want to use the spare outputs on the maestro to switch on the leds, so I need to switch a relay… can anyone please let me know if this is possible… and maybe what i would need to do to do so…


The outputs of the maestro can be set as a GPIO pin, so you could connect a relay module and switch the LEDs with that. Not sure if you need to use the configuration tool to do this, but it should be in the user manual/documentation.
