Hi there. I have beginner/moderate Zwave experience, but ran into a complex issue.
I have a winch (hoist) that I need to automate. When a sensor senses movement, the winch (via relay? I don’t know much about relays…) must trigger “up” for a certain amount of time. The winch has a wired remote control for up/down. Down the road I also want to trigger the “down” command to lower the winch as well.
Any thoughts on how to get started on this project? The winch is installed and I assume I will need a sensor and some type of relay… I have seen relay info for garage door openers, but those openers already have the intelligence to trigger up/down whereas in this project I must differentiate between up and down in the commands.
Thanks ahead of time!
