I am Ernie and have just today joined this site. I am working on a very simple device and would like some help.
I am trying to control my digital camera with a Ping distance sensor, so that when the sensor detects a certain distance, say 12 inches, the solenoid motor activates, thereby releasing the shutter and taking a picture.
This is what I have:
Arduino UNO R3
solenoid motor 5vsainsmart HC-SR04 ranging detector mod distance sensor
