I have no problem when I want to switch low voltages, there are ready made modules with multiple relays on the board, each with 3 output connections supporting normally open and normally closed. However, my problem came when I tried to find the same functionality but switching mains.
Maybe you could specify what you mean by 'mains'?
240V ?

OK, so why do you think a relay rated at 250V /10A can't handle mains?

I never said that. It was the combination of mains/normally closed contacts/3.3V input that I couldn't find, but have now sourced
