Having a problem with my servo motor

I want my Gen 2 to physically click my mouse, it's very simple, therefore i use a servo motor and everything is working!

however... the problem with this solution is:

1. servo motor is loud! i cant even use this because im disturbing my siblings

2. the time it takes for the servo to left click and back can be slow..

would like to hear your guys advice, should i keep using this servo or are there other options?

i was interested in using a relay but i dont know... what other device like the servo can accomplish this?

**by the way! i dont want a software/programming solution that emulates the mouse, i want a device that can 'tap' my physical mouse to do this function

Hi AdanChristo,

 

 

An alternative could be using a Solenoid like: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11015 https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11015. I think it will reduce the noise on your configuration and could improve the speed.

 

I hope this helps.
