I am trying to make a simple circuit that opens a door. I want the circuit to be below ground so its out of sight so I need to put a redstone torch under the door block. Ive done that but it makes the door stay open I have been trying to get the torch to turn on and off but I haven't been able to get it too work
I have tried things like putting switchs and pressure pads next to the torch and activate them to see if that turned them off and it did not. any advice would be nice. I Have been able to make another version that opens and closes doors using a repeater block but that but I don't want to use up that much resources every time I make a door circuit.
Redstone torches are by default 'on'. In order to turn them off, you need to have them adjacent to a lever, switch, pressure plate, etc, in example:
Where is your switch and is your redstone torch. Flipping the switch to the "on" position will direct power to the block; negating that from the torch, turning it off. Make sure they are on the same block.
