Introduction: Arduino/Android- 28BYJ 48 Stepper Motor Control Using the HC-06

Picture of Arduino/Android- 28BYJ 48 Stepper Motor Control Using the HC-06

Hello world! Today i made a simple app to turn one 28BYJ 48 stepper motor on and off, it just rotates to one direction. I will make a app to control the curtains of your house next, with the same motor. If you want the source code of the android app just ask! I will ask a very small favor in return. Go to the next step for the Schematic, Parts list & code.

Step 1: Schematic, Code, Parts List & APP

Picture of Schematic, Code, Parts List & APP

Just wire it up like the Schematic and it should work after uploading the code.

Make sure you disconnect the HC-06 when uploading the code. Other wise the arduino becomes confused.

Parts list.

  1. Arduino uno, I used the RobotDyn Uno which has 7 analog pins instead of 5.
  2. HC-06 Bluetooth module.
  3. 28BYJ 48Stepper motor With the ULN2003 driver board
  4. Jumper wire set. MM/FF/MF
  5. Android phone and our APP.


Good luck!

To find out how to rename your HC-06 & set PIN + change baud rate. Follow step 2 (optional)

Step 2: How to Change the Name of Your HC-06

What is needed?

1 x USB to TTL microcontroller programmer to connect to your HC-06

How to connect the Programmer?





Lets get started...

  1. connect the USB TTL programmer to the HC-06
  2. Plug in the USB and open up The Arduino IDE
  3. Open the serial monitor.
  4. Type "AT" without quotes. You should see a respond in the Serial monitor saying "OK"
  5. Type "AT+NAMExyz" Sets the module name to “xyz” (Replace xyz with the name you want.) response should be OKsetname.
  6. Type "AT+PIN1234" Sets the pin to 1234 (replace 1234 with your desired pin) respond should be OKsetPIN For more info on changing baudrate etc. i included a PDF file. Good luck!

nice work !! you can also use voice commands and make laser turret !

Hi, Thanks! Nice project you made. I made another APP to control curtains, or whatever you want to control with a stepper motor. follow the link

Check out my other instructable. as i said i was going to make another app to control your curtains. SO here it is.
