The Star Shower Motion laser decoration light has a motion button that toggles the motion on and off. It is a soft switch "electronic" switch. Upon shutting off the power (either by switch or timer) the motion of the device needs to be manually started. I was thinking of trying to bypass it with, possibly, a capacitor. My thought is that upon power-up, current could flow simulating a manual push, and as it is charged the current flow would be impeded; I don't think a hard-switch would be the way to go. Any thoughts?
