    few setup question

    I'm totally new to this fusion brain, i am trying to understand how to set it up i read most of the main thread but kind of confused, how would i wire the relay from the brain to an amp or to control interior lighting? does this apply to all the function just as controlling your windows, doors, etc thanks

    Hook a wire from the output on the Fusion Brain to a relay. Then a wire from the relay to the remote lead port on the amp.
    Hook a wire from the output on the Fusion Brain to a relay. Then a wire from the relay to your interior lights.

    Basically here's how it works:

    "How do I hook up X with my Fusion Brain?"
    "Hook a wire from the output port on your Fusion Brain to a relay. Then hook a wire from the relay to X"

    Where X is your device.

    If you look in the image below, you will see the yellow headers on the right. Each set of pins (1 horizontal row) is an output. So when you switch on an output through the control program, it activates the cooresponding output on the board. Now those 2 pins become a complete circuit between whatever is connected to it. So if you connect a relay's coil to the output pins, it energizes the coil and the relay trips.

    Now on the relay whatever is between its pins is now a complete circuit and juice will flow.

    So if you connect constant power to 1 side of the relay, and a wire to the power of neons to the other relay terminal, you can control it via the brain by plugging the relay into a yellow port, and selecting it via your screen.
