This instructable was created in fulfillment of the project requirement of the Makecourse at the University of South Florida (
This project is on automated window blinds that can be controlled from your phone via Bluetooth. The system uses a geared dc motor to wind / unwind the cord coming from the blinds in order to raise / lower it as well as a 2nd motor which rotates the rod from the blinds to open / close it. It can easily be powered from two USB wall adapters, like what is typically used for charging phones and other small electronic devices, or to save a wall outlet you can purchase a wall adapter that has two USB ports on it. With this wireless system you no longer have to get up to adjust your blinds, simply grab your phone and open the app!”
