No need for Raspberry Pi unless you are doing something very complex.

If you implement this it should work.

Hi the Venus unit has a on/off relay, only

you have to make up a interface box that trigers a start on the Mase when the relay close's and a stop when it opens,

I use some timers that hold the start button down for 5 sec when it close's and then a stop timer when it opens
