as you can tell by the screen name, you know who/what I am. I am looking for a sketch similar to an idea I have, with no luck. Guess it cuz i cant think of the wording to describe what it is i want to do. I have played around with relays and led controls which aren't that different. As well as copied and pasted the "Hello World" script into my Uno r3 16x2 LCD. Meh, what can i say fun? cute? a day spent? did i learn? Yeah... :neutral_face:
so with that being said, this is what i have,
my goal (with your help, patience and understanding) is to.... have one button cycle pairs of relays, have them on stand by, waiting for them to be triggered by a second button when pressed.
this is what i would like to happen hardware configuration via arduino.. (to minimize additional wiring and hardware)
pressing button number 1 selects 1 of these these groups of relays (in succession) but is momentarily triggered by button number 2
1-turn on arduino not one pair of relays is waiting to be or can be triggered by button number 2. until.... 2-press button number 1, one time selects relays 1 and 2, that are waiting to be triggered by button number two 3-press button number 1 again, selects relays 2 and 3, that are waiting to be triggered by button number two. 4-press button number 1 again, selects relays 4 and 5, that are waiting to be triggered by button number two. 5-press button number 1 again, selects relays 5 and 6, that are waiting to be triggered by button number two. 6-press button number 1 again, selects relays 7 and 8, that are waiting to be triggered by button number two. 7-press button number 1 again to return to relay relays 2 and 3, that are waiting to be triggered by button number two. in which the cycle continues never ending. until the arduino is turned off.
I understand that this can be done without the arduino. I have done it. its time consuming to wire and reproduce for my friends. In addition, i would like to add other bells and whistles. Until then this is the foundation of the project.
As my screen name states.... so please no ego, do your best to stay on topic, and most of all please help me learn.
thanks in advance. the 40 Year Old Noob. lol
