i need help coming up with a way to press a spray bottle wirelessly form 200+ feet away? Bug sprayer? Answered

I am working on a misting system that would operator wirelessly. I want to spray the bug spray with the click of a button in my back yard. It needs to be pretty small but really I am trying to figure the easiest way to either pump liquid from a small water bottle or a spray bottle.


Thoughts?

Get a pump from a car windscreen sprayer, they provide enough pressure to spray a liquid, if you need more pressure use the pump from a head lamp sprayer.

You can also get cheap 12V remotes (universal) that offer to close a relay while a button is pressed.

I got one last year from Ebay for under 15 bucks plus shipping.

Electric, battery powered, spray bottles exist. I seen 'em.

I dunno. I think that would solve about half of your problem.

I have also seen electric, motorized, air fresheners, which work by periodically pushing the button on the top of an aerosol can, in the even the stuff you want to spray comes in an aerosol can.

The wireless part of the problem should be pretty straightforward. If you have any friends who have built roadside IEDs, they should have some good advice on the best kind of wireless transmitter to use. I think wireless doorbell chimes can be adapted to this purpose,

and maybe other ways too, but I'm not sure which is best for your application.
