Hello, I am relatively new to this type of thing, but I have been researching for hours and I just need a little guidance as to what to search to achieve my end goal. With that, here is my conundrum.
I have a project that uses up to 12 lasers. My end goal is to have one button (Button 1) that will turn on 6 of them (Set 1), one button (Button 2) that will turn on 8 of them (Set 2) and a final button (Button 3) that will turn on all 12 (Set 3). I would like the buttons to turn the sets on sequentially, meaning Set 2 will include Set 1 plus two more and so forth.
Ideally, I would like to have all of this controlled by one master button that will control power to the whole thing and maybe a kill switch that would shut it all down. So the sequence would be: Master Button -> Select Button 1, 2, or 3 and then the kill switch at the end.
Mostly, I have been having a terrible time figuring out what to search for in order to make the buttons do what I want.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time
