Looking to create something similar to this:
However, the changes I would like to make are:
- Control it remotely from a distance of about 100m, outdoor use.
- battery powered eg. power bank, batteries.
- Throw of about 10mm
Hi Jake, should be reasonably easy if you wanted to you a remote I would recommend this: https://core-electronics.com.au/ir-kit-for-arduino.html. Should be a pretty simple setup. Alternative you could go to an online app-controlled method using a wifi module: https://core-electronics.com.au/wifi-module-esp8266-4mb.html
Thanks Mitchell, I believe the distance of the IR remote is like 3 metres?
Also, I would prefer to just have a remote with a button on it that would just activate the solenoid, rather than using an app.
Hmm, righto might have to go a bit more bespoke, https://core-electronics.com.au/433mhz-rf-link-kit-seeed-studio.html. Maybe then have another microcontroller with a button that acts a remote. But at this point, I would just recommend going down a wifi route
