So, last week I worked on connecting my automatic curtain system motor unit to the control panel. Unfortunately, this wasn’t as easy as I had hoped. So after banging my head into the wall for a week, it is time do take a step back.
So, The Annoying Dishwasher™ finally lost it’s vocal cords of hell and got connected an XBee using some optocouplers. It is time to jump into geek mode (as if we weren’t there yet …), and start the software part.
Do you know the joke about the relay on the ready LED? Well, it didn’t work. As told in previous ‘Annoying Dishwasher’ adventure, it turned out the ready led only turned on as soon as the dishwasher was opened. So the only way I could connect a ‘ready sensor’ to the dishwasher, is by using the original buzzer connections.
