These Smart Blinds automatically open and close according to ambient light levels, and also close in response to heat.
This project presents the improvements made to my original (and first) project, the Automated Solar Powered Horizontal Blinds. The original design posted met the requirements at the time. It operated correctly for nearly 4 months before some design flaws became apparent.
To recap, the purpose of the blinds is to open and close based on light levels, to either let in light or close for privacy. And also the blinds should close when it gets “too hot,” which is a completely arbitrary designation.
