Introduction: Automating a Greenhouse With LoRa! (Part 2) || Motorized Window Opener
In this project I will be showing you how I created a motorized window opener for my greenhouse. That means I will show you what motor I used, how I designed the actual mechanical system, how I drive the motor and finally how I used an Arduino LoRa board in order to control the motor from anywhere in the world. Let's get started!
Step 1: Watch the Video and Part 1!
Make sure to watch both videos in order to properly understand the Arduino LoRa section of this project!
