very cool ! Felt like I was watching that old Universal monster picture from the 30s/40s - House of Darlene ! ITS ALIVE !
Pay no attention to the noise, I didn't realize it untill I watched the video that I had the pedestal fan on, and it was only a few feet from the camera.
Here in the tropics, we run fans all year long and become pretty oblivious to the sound.
The top left button powers up the PC. The receiver's relay board makes a momentary contact while you press the button that connects to the mobo power switch front panel connector pins.
The lower left button toggles it's respective receiver board relay. Push once to turn on the Aux PSU for the fans and actuator power, push again to turn off.
If you hold it too long, it'll sometimes toggle back off, as it did in the video, requiring a second press. I'm not very coordinated left handed.
The top right button powers the actuators in the "UP" direction for as long as it's pressed, but once they fully extend, they turn off by the internal limit switches.
The lower right button powers the actuators in the "Down" direction for as long as it's pressed, though they also stop automatically when fully retracted.
