I don't know what kind of supernatural law it is but I can have something sit in my shop for years and within a month after tossing it I find a need for it. Ever notice that?
Re: 3-way photosensor switch control
Posted by gfretwell:
The latching relay may be the simplest solution. It has 2 coils. One picks the relay, the other drops the relay. Getting from the photo detector to having the current to operate the relay coils will depend on which one you chose.
