I have a small camera looking at the beach.
The wind + salty air gets the front glass of the housing all dirty.
I want to install a "windshield washer kit" from Pep Boys ($14 or so), that has a small tank, pump, tubing and nozzles.
Already did it to one camera, and it works awesome.
Yet my "timing" system is a mess/over-complication.
I want to turn on the washer system three times per day (morning, mid-day, afternoon).
At the moment, I have a digital timer, with a resolution down to 1 minute.
Ok, so I turn on the timer at 7:00am, and turn it off at 7:01am.
The 110vac of that timer, goes into a "delay timer relay" (I think its called).
This has an adjustment knob.
I adjusted this knob via trial-and-error to "send power out" about 58-59 seconds after it starts receiving 110vac.
Would there be a possibility to have this setup with an Arduino?
Have an output for 1, 2 or 3 seconds?
The PepBoys washer pump is for automotive, so it's 12volts.
At the moment, I'm running it with a AC-DC power plug (brick thingy) that I had laying around.
The output of it is 12vdc, at 1.5amps.
The pump runs awesome with that.
Any thoughts on what I can do?
Thank you very much for taking the time to help... very much appreciated!
