Automatic Window Blinds
« on: July 17, 2016, 12:57:29 pm »
Yesterday I managed to update two Oaks (of 5, where 3 of then ended up as hidden network) and decided to automate my window blinds.

The idea is for blinds to automatically open in the morning and close afternoon.

I used one 2 channel relay board (cheap one from the ebay) and 5V adapter for phones 2A that I had laying around.

I made a simple UWP (Windows 10) app that runs on phones and desktop to call into exposed function on Oak via Particle Could.

Here are some pictures and video of the Oak in action:
