Raspberry Pi Powered Velux Windows @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Check out this awesome project video from Tim Gibbon, in which he shows us how he powers velum windows with a Raspberry Pi!
Rapberry Pi powered velux windows. An old velux remote wired to a sainsmart relay board and a MCP chip. The windows are opened and closed based on the temperature of the house and the weather outside. If the heating comes on (or has been on in the last 4 hours), then the windows close.
Velux windows have sensors which close if it rains.
