Automated Blinds with Arduino

Automated Blinds with Arduino

Do you spend a lot of time opening and closing your blinds each day? With this project from FreedomToCreate you can create your own automated blind controller which allows you to open or close your blinds based on a schedule, current temperature or outdoor light levels. The blinds are driven up and down by a stepper motor so that you can have precise control over the position. You can even have the added flexibility of controlling your blinds from your smartphone. Although it sounds like a relatively minor “chore” it is amazing how much time you could save across an entire year if you didn’t have to worry about your blinds! This is a really great project to develop your maker skills and learn how to create internet connected devices. To get started on this handy project check out the instructable.
