I've begun setting up my Venetian Blinds to be automated. Had one setup with a servo motor and an esp8266, using Blynk to operate them to whatever angle of opening..
However I have just ordered a hubitat and wondering if I can incorporate it (well the dashboard more to the point).
So I can my options as follows. Both options rely on the esp8266 (either keeping Blynk for setting the various angles for the motor or just using the arduino ide).
- Option 1 is get a zwave or Zigbee relay to change a digital input on the esp8266 that triggers the various/set opening angles) Although all these seem quite expensive and more for high current
- Option 2 Maybe create a virtual switch (I believe this is possible on hubitat) that sends a http post to the esp8266 (either using Blynk for the webhook or arduino ide can do it as well I think)
So any other suggestions to make the esp8266 or arduino to trigger the blinds from the hubitat dashboard?
Or any other suggestions for cheapish zigbee or zwave relay..
Or any other way to send some thing from the hubitat dashboard to arduino?
