Thanks for the warning, I'm not going to attempt anything until I am 100% sure

I am using an 500w electric hoist/motor that runs off 230v ~ 50Hz mains supply. This has a 3-way switch UP/off/DOWN I would like to connect this switch to the arduino digital inputs effectively just to send the UP/off/Down information to a computer.

What resistor should I use with this kind of power so I don't kill myself and the arduino board?
