    Automatic Window Curtains

    Hi there. This looks so amazing! I was saying a while back that I need something like this, and surely it's possible to build one?

Thank you for providing the directions, pictures, links to parts, etc. Do you think it would be easy to add onto or modify this in such a way that it can connect to wifi and IFTTT? Is the clock part you've added supposed to let you set it to open and close at certain times of day while you're not around to Bluetooth-control it?
