I bought an RF remote http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/6085451055.html (last picture, whith the 3 wires on it)
for my little project, it works awesome, when I connect it to a digital pin, all works splendid.
but now I realize that it would be better for my project that i could reset the µCU by remote, so all my parameters would return to their original state.
i've been trying some things, but nothing seems to work.
the RF Remote receiver has 3 connections on it who are wired
GND - VCC and OUT
VCC is 5 volt, GND = 0 and when the relais is triggered by the receiver, the output is at 5volts
I tried to put the output to the GND on the µCU, i've tried the output to the RST pin as well ... no good luck
of course i have to keep the remote receiver on VCC and GND to operate properly, otherwise the receiver won't work. and the signal of the RF transmitter will not be detected
there are also 2 more outputs available on the PCB of the receiver, being NO & NC, but these are not wired by the seller.
does anyone have an idea if this could possible work with the receiver, or is this wishfull thinking of me and should i just stick to a wired toggle switch between RST and GND to reset the µCU?
would it make a difference if I have the receiver an external (same powersupply) 5V and GND to make it work, and then connected the OUT to the µCU, instead off giving it the 5V & GND from the MEGA ADK?
