Hey guys, I plan on fabricating my own chandelier lift in my attic using a hoist from Harbor Freight. I plan on having 2 limits on the cable which will automatically shut off the lift when it reaches the correct heights (all the way up and down), similarly to how all hoists have a limit switch when they are retracted all the way.
One slight problem is that I dont want to climb into the attic each time and also dont want to run 4 wires through 2 floors into the basement then back up to where the chandelier switch is to control it there. So I was thinking on having Smartthings control 2 relays (one for up and one for down) for around a minute (the relays will run for a minute but the hoist will automatically stop when it reaches the limit height).
I came here looking for any suggestions and the best relay(s) to use. I was also thinking about using an alternating relay (one for up and one for down) and having only one z-wave relay that triggers it to keep cost down.
