Control a second circuit with arduino as first circuit

Hello everybody,

I need to trigger a existing button in the second circuit with arduino, It will have the normal function of being pressed and executed or be fired by the output signal of the arduino. I´m not sure how to do that, the main problem is that both circuits are in depends and each one has it´s own Vcc,
Any tip of how to do that? It will be welcomed

Thanks a lot!

Wire small relay across the button, when the Arduino energises the coil of the relay it will be like pressing the button.

This one only needs 11mA of coil current, can drive it with an Arduino output.

Connect one side of coil to 5V, the other to an Arduino pin. Add a diode across the coil, cathode to 5V, anode to the Arduino pin side. When Arduino output goes low, coil is energized and button connections to NO and C are connected.

Thanks a lot!; I´ll check it out, I´ve also read I can do that with a transistor. I´ll givi it a try

If you had posted a schematic of the circuit the button is connected to Crossroads could have determined if a transistor would work but since you gave no such information you left him with no other options. If you are asking for infomation on how to modify "another circuit" it help if provide something more specific than "another circuit". He didn't ask you what "another circuit" means because generally when posters are that obviously vague about their circuit it's because they don"t want to discuss it ( ie: marajuana grow farm ,I.E.D. etc. etc ).
We get posts like " How to I send a trigger signal 3 km wirelessly ? That's a direct quote.

Transistor can maybe work, but if you want keep the two circuit isolate you have to use a photocoupler, with the transistor you have to share at least the ground.

Ciao, Ale.

Sorry raschemmel, it was more that I still don´t know how to express what I need than being vague, I´m going to try to put it like an exercise for myself so I can begin to have things clear, my field is Software, so I have so much to learn..
.

Imagine we have this both circuits, they are the same one repeated, each one with it´s own battery, i need that they will be able of:
1 . Use button 1 of circuit 1 regular, so the led turns on
2 . Use button 2 of circuit 2 so it does its dutys, and it also turns on the led of circuit one.
3 . It need to drive a safe signal, so, when both interrupts are on, I don´t fried the led of circuit one,

It´s important to maintain the design as cheap as possible, it´s very important to protect both circuits, but i think it´s doable with transistors, so it would be my first choice.

The original circuit i guess it will be more complicated, since, I have a High signal when the button of the slave circuit is not pressed and Low signal when it´s pressed, but for the moment, it´s enough for me so I can figured it out what´s going on.

Thanks again for the answers!
