Need help with using a wireless doorbell ? Answered


I am looking for a way to use a wireless doorbell such that when I press the button a small 6volt motor will go on and stay on until I pressed the button again.   Seems I need a latch relay but the more I research the more confused I get.  Thanks?

What you need is called a Flip-Flop. Just find a point on the receiver that goes high when the button is pressed, and hook it up to the flip-flop and MOSFET for the motor.

(The MOSFET is there so that the motor can have enough current.)

Why are you confused by it ?

You could do it with a "flip-flop" and a transistor.
