I'm new to this forum and am in the midst of a project for Halloween, which I cannot seem to figure out. I've only done low-voltage LED wiring before this, so it's a bit out of my wheel house to wire up a motion sensor trigger, to a delay relay and hope it somehow magically makes the motor turn. I'm making a trigger activated candy dispenser and the reason for the delay relay, is I don't want the motor engage continuously (basically, so kids can't steal all the candy--they have to wait like 5-10 seconds for the next turn). I've tried to power the load, as well as the trigger, via the delay relay, but once the power hits the motor, it just turns on by it's own, bypassing the trigger. I've also tried two different motion sensors and they don't seem to work either. Anyone have any bright ideas, or suggestions for additional parts? I'm at a loss.
Thanks for anyone's time and mind they put into this--it's appreciated and I'm hoping to do even more next Halloween!
