Arduino-Based Curtain AutomationFebruary 22, 2012

[Jamie Zawinski] explains how to build an useful tool to automate the curtains with Arduino.

I built a controller so that I can open and close my curtains from the command line! My apartment has a 16' wide floor-to-ceiling window, and a correspondingly-huge curtain. I wanted to put the curtain under software control so I could do things like, for example, have it automatically open in the morning to help me get out of bed.

He uses an Arduino Ethernet, a Relay Shield and a Drapery Controller. It's a nice hack to gift to your parents for Father's Day!!
