I went through hundreds of CVs in my professional life and today was the first time that something from the category "Interests and activities" has switched my mind from a "No" to a "Yes" if we should invite that person to an interview.
One of the must haves for this role is experience with physical product development from a DevOps point of view. This person has been working in IT, Health (databases), ADC, where they only worked with software.
But they have an interest in "Home Automation" which brings all the same problems with it needed because of the physical component. So I'm hoping this person has a good background in it and it might be enough to bridge the gap.
