Momentary Actuation?



  • Hey All -

    I'm working on a sensor where I will want to actuate something momentarily. Specifically, I want to send a stream of data via a 433mhz transmitter. But this could be as something as simple as latching/un-latching a relay (simulating a button-push, etc).

    I'm not sure what device to use from a controller perspective.

    Should I just use a switch that is normally in a state of "off"? When Vera sets the device to "on", do "whatever" in the sketch (set a bit in the sketch, etc), and then have the sketch turn the switch status back off in Vera? Seems like kind of a hack. Is there a "push button" device type?
