So, I have an RPi 2 Model B laying around and finally have a project I would like to use with it, but I'm not sure how to begin.
I do have a strong I.T. background but am not sure about the DIY electronics as much.
I should let you know, I have no idea how to go about this, and I will likely need some help with the setup/coding but I think this is a fairly simple project
Basically, I want to have a physical button (such as that on a garage door opener) pushed every 90 minutes. Simple enough (?)
From what I've researched, I will need a solenoid to act as the device that will push the button, but I'm not sure exactly what kind of solenoid I will need, how to connect it all up, coding to drive it all, etc.
Please, any and all assistance is most greatly appreciated!
