How to control Actuator using Arduino and two push buttons

How to control Actuator using Arduino

This video shows how to control Actuator with 2 relay and Arduino. We have got 2 push button one is used for Push and the end one is used to pull the actuator. This project can work with virtually with any actuator and with any voltage. Any Arduino module can be used.
