Hey all of you hunters out there! Here's an idea that can make your hunting life more convenient....An Automatic Hunting Stand Window! When the sensor senses a change in the amount of heat emitted by surrounding objects, the window will either open or close.

Hello there my fellow outdoorsman! I am extremely impressed with your Deer tree blind automatic window instructable! I've never seen someone come up with such a brilliant way to have a closed window that the deer literally opens for you allowing the hunter to keep both hands on his crossbow or firearm!

We used a basic PIR sensor and the noise was minimal.
cool. what kind of sensor are you using, how is it with noise?
