Hello, I want to connect a vibration motor (e.g. https://paradisetronic.com/de/aktuatoren/mini-vibrationsmotor-1-5-5v) to a laptop and control it with a software. The manufacturers of the software suggest Chronos for this (https://support.pstnet.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003480968-INFO-Chronos-and-Triggers-24492-). I'm new to electronics and hardware, but I've tried to teach myself the basics with Arduino :) If I've understood it correctly, I need the I/O Cable and then use Pin 1 (+5V) for one cable of the vibration motor and Pin 5 (Analog Ground) for the other one? Is it that simple or have I forgotten something? Thank you in advance & regards!

Note that even this little motor draws more current than the pin of the Arduino can deliver. You need to add a driver transistor controlled by the Arduino to drive the motor: https://www.mikrocontroller.net/articles/Relais_mit_Logik_ansteuern The 'Schaltstufe für kleine Lasten' is what you need. Don't omit the Diode. Your motor is a inductive load like the relay and needs the same circuit.
