That actually will work! I'm looking for when I trip the secondary relay(generator starter circuit) it shuts off after x time so it's not constantly cranking when the Gen is fired.

So my question is, and due to delay, I may need to do this at the sensor rather than at MyC.
So from my earlier post, I am using MyC paired with MySensors over Ethernet, to control my home standby generator. Now, I have the relays piped into MyC, and they function, but one of them is going to control crank. So here is my question: Is there a variable to make a latched relay into momentary?
Hello everyone, newbish question
Hi everyone. So I installed MyController on my LINUX server(not a RPI, a repurposed PC which also shares my network file system) So I am wanting to us MySensors and Arduinos with Ethernet shields as my nodes. Now I dont know if this question is appropriate here or for the mysensors forum, but I am wondering, do I need a gateway if I want to use ethernet to communicate to MC? It looks like gateway is needed for a RF link to the MC, but I am not planning on using RF, due to the excessive saturation of RF I already have in my home with my career, hobby, etc(Land Mobile Radio Service Tech) and I wanted a more concrete connection unaffected by enviromentals as much as possible(my entire network infrastructure is on extended runtime UPS, plus eventually a generator, which I hope to also control off MC)
My ultimate goal I'm planning on:
Sump Pump Runtime logging
High Water/Sump Fail notification with email trigger
Power Failure Event Notification
Semi Automatic Transfer Switch Control and Status
Generator Control and Status
Hardwired Fire/Smoke/CO Detector Trigger and Email/SMS Notify
Oil Fired Boiler Control/Status/Emergency Shutdown
Oil tank level indication with email notify on low level
Critical Network Infrastructure Up/Down via Ping/SNMP Traps with email notify
Integration into Samsung SmartThings Platform(FUTURE, possibly) or potentially completely migrating all smarthome devices to MC
My overall goal is to build this out to allow me to reach my critical home infrastructure while i am not at home. I work for a company where on short notices i work long hours, and that leaves my wife home(who I love, but is clueless on what/how/when to do things when things fail)
