Momentary Action with a Wireless Switch
Many different types of wireless switch modules with a relay for switching AC power loads are commercially available. However, some applications require a short On or Off pulse, such as is provided by a momentary-action (pushbutton) switch. Here we describe a solution that simulates a pushbutton switch with a standard wireless switch. A supplementary circuit converts the switch module into a remotely controllable momentary-action switch.
