Automatic Blind Opener Advice Answered


I am thinking of putting together something that will able to automatically open and close my blinds as the darkness outside dictates.

Ideally, I am hoping to attach the opening/closing pole to a DC Motor, which would be controlled by a light sensor.

I was also toying with the idea of powering the system with a rechargeable 9V battery that could be topped up with a small solar panel attached to the window.

Is this idea doable and, if so, any advice on parts and putting it together would be very much appreciated.
