I only provide help via the forum - please do not contact me for private consultancy.


At the bottom of the below page are some reversing motor setups that use limit switches and diodes that allow for motor stop/reversing.

I am basically walking I to this blindfolded and looking to find someone willing to walk me through this what I'm creating is a chicken coop door which opens vertically with a small geared motor and I want to control it with my raspberry pi via its USB port. So what I'm looking for is a stackable solution based on a arduino USB board with limit switches for open and close.

Any help will be grately apreciated.
