I'm in the planning stages of making a wireless on/off switch that will basically cut off pin 6 on a network cable. I know little about electronics and I've attempted to learn as much as I can before coming here, so bare with me If I make no sense.
I purchased a wireless receiver 4ch remote switch which has VT OUT STATUS(No idea what this is), D0, D1, D2, D3, GND, +5v. I believe D0, 1D1, D2 and D3 represent +v5 output when triggered which would then complete a circuit to output to a LED or 5v component.
It is my understanding the current way this receiver works is that it completes a voltage circuit therefor outputting 5v and most likely useless to turn on a LED. However, I need the circuit to be constantly on until toggled off. From what I learned reading various sources I've learned some what about relays but unable to find out if complete a circuit other than one that has power running through it. Basically all I want to do is turn off PIN 6 on a data network cable when pressed.
Using the current setup what do I need to be able to disable communications on PIN6 of a network cable (please note that I have PCB ports and everthing, Just need some guildance in accordance with turning the wireless +5v switch into a block data switch.
Would this work?
