I'm really hoping there is a way that I can do this using my Arduino. I have been looking for a way to use my keyboard and mouse to work on various computers here in my home office. Like a KVM but only the keyboard and mouse.
I already have a solution for my monitors so no worries there.
Here's the deal. I'm a tester for a software company so I have about 20 or so computers ranging from Dell and HP boxes down to Raspberry PIs 2,3 and 4.
Yes, I know about Synergy and I do use them on a couple of my Windows systems BUT it is a royal pain in the you know what to traverse 20 children just to be able to use the one keyboard and mouse. Like I said I have the monitor switching working great.
While researching my idea I came across this project on Youtube. I took a screen shot of the gist.
Basically, the guy in the video just switches the DPDT switch to the computer he wants to work on and it works.
I would like the ability to select a button and wham Bam it starts working on the computer rather than having 20 keyboards & mice or traversing a huge Synergy mapping.
I would greatly appreciate ideas, suggestions and leads to research & hopefully accomplish what I need.
Thanks in advance
