I hooked everything up on the mailbox, and testing went not so well...
I wasn't able to detect when the mail came. My guess is in my testing I opened the mailbox past the angle it needed for the tilt switch to open, but the mail person didn't open it far enough to get the switch to open. I think they would need to open it past 90 deg for the switch to open.
Back to the drawing board!
