Monster Mask

by Ahouse21 on Fri Jan 08, 2021 11:00 pm

I need to turn off /on one of the eyeballs. Is there a single wire on the 9 pin jumper that allows switching like this? I want to use an SR602 Motion Sensor to trigger it on, once motion stops or the timer elapses, it turns back off. The eyeballs do not need to be “synced” to each other. I tried pin 1 and pin 9, no luck. Thanks for your help.

The most reasonable way would be to instruct the ATSAMD09 on the left side to turn off the screen backlight (via I2C). The main ATSAMD51 controls the right screen backlight directly.

It look slike you might be able to do that through the Ardacia library. Notably, have a look at https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Arcada/blob/master/Boards/Adafruit_Arcada_MONSTERM4SK.h, near the bottom (the setBackLight function at line 116 that sets both backlights).
