Comments for "A Foray Into Home Automation" #102
This is awesome, thanks for the blog post. I'm keen to try it out
I recently started experimenting with some DIY projects using a Wemos board (similar to the NodeMCU), and my first project was automating my garage door. I hooked it up to my Google Assistant using IFTTT and also built my own web app in Angular and .Net to control it. My next project might just be this one of yours
With the plate I designed originally you could sort of manually manipulate the servo out of the way to flip the switch, but it wasn't what I would call completely accessible!
I had plans to make a version where the servo could be rotated out of the way, but in the end (and after an office re-shuffle) I ended up uninstalling the automation from the light switch...
Maybe if I get bored in the future I'll revisit this!
