This idea was born out of a desire to not have to do such a mundane task as opening and closing the curtains in my house each day.

What it does

Smart Curtains are controlled from an app and open or close at the push of a button or at preset times of the day.

How I built it

Using a Particle Photon to control the motor.

Challenges I ran into

Figuring the right combination of mechanical or hardware parts from various local stores to combine into a working machine was very challenging.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Getting the curtain operational! Learning C in the process!!

What I learned

Software and hardware go nicely together.

What's next for Smart Curtains
