Ive spent a lot of time reading the forum this year and im now decided to ask for some guidance.
My quest is a simple one in my head but im a man and like a challenge.
Lighting the side of the house when poeple walk to the rear garden (my partner runs a business in a log cabin in the garden)
Easy i hear you cry, of course it is PIR on 30 seconds one either end … done
Thats how it started as i said Im a man , lets make it so when someone comes round the lights fade up (led 10w x 4) and when they exit the other end they fade off and then reverse it as they go out, then add the back door in so when you come out the door the light come on as well and switch off as you leave either way
Sensor PIR - hacked to reset in 2sec and resticted beams sorted
LED sorted with electronics
My next quest and the reason for this over length entry is the programming of my adruino. Ive been playing with room counter, distence sensor codes all sort of video on switch case etc and I cant believe im the first person who as wanted to do this type of project. I am not going to enter any code because I have so main variation and none work 50% of what I want.
So could anyone point me in the right direction for coding for this project as the nights will soon be coming in again in the UK I have attached a diagram of my hoped layout
