2023-03-19 (Su) EWC_Box Remote PRandomization

I wanted a wireless button that was more approachable than the large enclosure. I bought a couple of remote relays and tested them. The first was inexpensive but had a noticeable delay, and I had to hold it for 0.5 seconds, or the receiver ignored the request. The second one was more responsive but costly.

I added the receiver to the inside of the enclosure with double-sided tape stuck to the faceplate and wired one of the relays in parallel with the PRandomize button. If I had planned better, I could have used unique microcontroller inputs and utilized both relays.
The two-button version worked best

I took apart the remote, added short wires to the button contacts, and ran them out a small hole I made in the housing. I wired it to my arcade pushbutton and tested it with the receiver at each step. I put everything together and confirmed that I could trigger the PRandomize button at a distance, even through a metallic enclosure.
