Arduino relay switch

Thought I’d share my first project. Very rough I know, but its just a prototype.
Switching a relay with 5 second reset using arduino pro mini and my NExT.
I didn’t write the code myself, just modified some I found online.
Probably cost under ten pounds in parts.
I’m pleased with how well it works.

Very cool!

Got any plans to install it in something? Door, a car, toolbox, or a safe?

Hey are you in the discord chat? I’ll ping the dude here to :wink: @Chimpofm

Chimpo has made a series of little pcbs for this exact purpose. Great work BTW!

Thank you.
I think this may be a hybrid of one of theirs.
I noticed that the code had ‘chimpoflag’ as one of the boolean flags :joy:
Not on discord atm but i will sort it out.

It would be cool if you did an update at some stage with things like:-

Implant:
Parts list:
code (or link to code):
Build instructions/wiring diagram:
any other little nuggets of info:

I’m looking forward to seeing it installed on your bike :motorcycle:

That is beautifully tidy.
Im getting there with my version but it will be far less discrete than yours. How it will evolve is anyone’s guess!
Thanks to you @Chimpofm and your friend for the excellent write up. It was definitely your project that i emulated.
