    Just a quick question: you said that the switch id 'OFF' if the dial is in the resting position, and 'ON' if the dial is moving.In your code, however, you writeif (initRead == LOW) { // If the wheel is turning... Shouldn't this be the other way around the? Or does this have to do with the pinMode INPUT_PULLUP? Would love to hear from you! And thanks for this awesome project!
