Motorized Window Plantation Shutters

Posted on Feb. 17th, 2012

I finally got it working!  I'll be doing a writeup soon, but for now here is a demo video of 1 out of the 14 shutters I want to automate in the house.  The wire going to the motor will be run to the crawlspace below the house from inside the window sill, so it will never be seen. The humming noise will also be adjusted (I have the delay set too long in this demo) so it won't be as loud. There are 10 exact positions I can set them to, ranging from closed in one direction to closed in the other.

I don't know what a plantation shutter is. Is that like the windows on the house in "Gone With The Wind"?

I Have about 6 plantation shutters that I was just starting to think about how to do what you have brilliantly done. I think it is great. I wanted to be able to wi fi it for my home security when I am away. I got as far as using the servos and an aleron from my radio controlled planes to attach to the main runner. Will you sell the comunications part?
