Open sesame - Motorized curtains
posted January 19 2011 7:44.57 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Simeon Kuninski [electronics-lab] made a system to automatically open and close the curtains. He also added an IR receiver to remote-control it. The system is based on the ATMEGA328 with Arduino bootLoader. The IR receiver is a TSOP 1738 connected to the microcontroller. Some parts along with the DC motor are taken from an old printer (nice!). For remote control, he used the controller from a PixelView TV Tuner. Two reed switches are used as limit switches. Read this article for more info and to see a video.

    • Group of students did this a few years ago for a final project in a microcontroller design course. It's slightly dated now given it requires a million wires and is coded in assembler and not C, but here's a link: http://bit.ly/hn0pH0
