I’m trying to use an Adafruit PIR with my Pololu Maestro 12 to trigger an animation sequence while it detects motion:
I’m using a 5V power adapter, and the PIR works with 5V, and the servo power is 5V as I have the jumper set so VSRV=VIN, so I assumed I could user the servo power (red line) to power the PIR instead of the boards dedicated 5V Out, and I wired it that way. I do have a 10K Ohm resistor connected between the Servo 5V and the Servo Signal as a Pull-Up resistor for the PIR channel (11), and Channel 11 is set to “Input” in Maestro Control Center channel settings.
Under status, the PIR doesn’t seem to be detecting motion. It stays at 255 constantly.
What am I doing wrong? Will I have to use the dedicated 5V Out instead of the servo 5V?
