int relayPin = 2;// define output pin for relay 

void setup() {
  pinMode(relayPin, OUTPUT);// define pin 2 as output

}

void loop() {
  
  digitalWrite(relayPin, LOW); // turn the relay ON 
  delay(200); // wait for 3 seconds
  digitalWrite(relayPin, HIGH);// // turn the relay OFF 
  delay(200);// wait for 1 second

  digitalWrite(relayPin, LOW); // turn the relay ON 
  delay(200); // wait for 3 seconds
  digitalWrite(relayPin, HIGH);// // turn the relay OFF 
  delay(200);// wait for 1 second

  digitalWrite(relayPin, LOW); // turn the relay ON
