Using MKR1000 and MKR Relay Shield to control a Desktop Lamp
/*
  WiFi Web Server to set an alarm on the RTC to drive a relay

  A simple web server that shows a form to insert an alarm time
  on a MKR1000 + MKR Relay Shield to drive relays on MKR Relay Shield.
  
  At alarm match the two outputs will be driven HIGH for 5 minutes

  Circuit:
   - MKR1000 + MKR Relay Proto Shield Shield
