can I use it to be a switch for Pi?

You can use the IR receiver on your DigiPi to tirn the Pi off.

If you want to turn it on you need additional hardware. For example a RemotePi Board from MSL Digital Solutions.

As for Me I use old version of Raspberry (B).
For it you can try this:
I used a button connected to pins P6 … spberry-pi
It makes Raspberry turn on & reset.
So together with LIRC I have on/off control and some more.
