Re: relay control will this work?
I do the same with a fog machine - elsewhere someone was worried about a relay coil affecting the triac - I haven't noticed this, but if there are worries about backfeeding when turning off the channel, some have suggested a diode. I haven't done this, but when I do my rotisserie motor, maybe I'll just stick an el-cheapo diode inline with my ice cube relays - only problem I have is the audible -click- during on/off - but if you're running during an entire sequence, I see no issues.
