Electronics: Arduino Servo with Sound

Expanded my previous circuit with the DFPlayer Mini to now activate an arduino servo from 0 – 180 degrees while playing an audio file of a garage door. When pressed again, the servo reverts back from 180 – 0 and again plays the audio file. Six of these will be used to control the bay doors on the Walthers diesel house.
