1) Give a description of the problem
I have a shed in my backyard that is on it’s last leg and does not currently have a door. Lately, every night around 2:00am a couple of stray cats are coming into my backyard and going my shed for a late night rendezvous. I know this because my Ring Security Camera picks up the motion/action. They are also peeing on everything in the shed. I know this because the entire shed smells like cat urine.
2) What is the expected behaviour?
By my calculations, approximately 2.5 seconds after the camera detects the motion, the cat is positioned right in front of one of my sprinkler heads (connected by Rachio). I am hoping to create a piston that will trigger the rachio sprinkler (zone 1) when the camera detects motion. It will run for 60 seconds and then turn off.
3) What is happening/not happening?
Literally nothing. I set the ‘active time’ to 18 so that I could test it without having to be up at 2:00am. When I went outside to test it, the camera picked up the motion but the sprinklers did not turn on. Otherwise I have no idea what’s wrong.
