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
