I want to trigger a linear actuator by with a luminosity sensor.
I have a Raspberry Pi 3 and a light sensor module see link http://www.uugear.com/portfolio/using-light-sensor-module-with-raspberry-pi/
The linear actuator raises and lowers a ramp in a chicken coop.
I am hoping someone can explain how I can view my sensor as a device in my Cayenne control panel and how to see the linear actuator, do I treat it as a motor?
If an Arduino is more appropriate for this project I can lay my hands on one quite easily
Many thanks in advance
