Hi looking for some guidance on a couple of things on a prototype I am trying to build.
I want to replace a 10 dip switch bar on a device with a arduino controller and be able to set the dip switches and activate the unit via Bluetooth from my phone that would be 10 separate channels in a on or off state at the same time and then a single channel to activate the controller.The device I am doing this to is powered by 9 volt and there is 9 volt going past each dip switch unless in a off state when the activate button is pressed. The goal is the be able to manipulate the dip settings from the phone and activate any combination of on off.
what board and extra stuff to buy or possible kit that might suit my needs working on a small budget .
is 11 independent switches possible 10 toggled to on or off at the same time and then a single activate for a 2 to 3 second time period
Can it be run directly off the arduino board to activate the dip circuit being 9v or do i need a digital switch of some kind to replace the dip switch from what I have read 5v output is max on arduino.
Any help on what i should buy would be great dont want to buy a bunch of stuff only to find out it was not what i really needed.
