How to control a motor via app/microcontroller?? Answered
New to Instructables and I love the site. Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place or not! I'm completely new to the whole internet of things but intruiged by it and want to learn more.
I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm looking to make a basic enough app that allows the user to move a wooden dome roof maybe 6m in diameter. It's for a home observatory. Possibly move the roof according to degrees the user inputs also.
Would I be right in saying the roof motor would have to be online in order to use through a smartphone? Would something like Raspberry Pi or Arduino be suitable for this? Sorry I'm bit of a novice but want to learn
