I'm hoping I can get some advice about if its possible to use Arduino to solve a problem.
I have a hen house with a door that opens by rotating 180 degrees, operated by a T shaped handle. pictues
Is it feasible to use a servo like this
to rotate and counter rotate the door? If so what would I need to construct it?
An arduino unit - which one would be suitable?
Something to power the servo
A breadboard and connectors
Geewiz box to house it all
Supplying mains power shouldn't be a problem but if I opted for batteries would that cause more problems or are there battery modules. Assuming open and closing once per day what sort of battery life could I expect?
Opening and closing will be based on either a set time or on input from a light sensor.
I've read through some of the topics but I can't find if something like this has been done before.
How much programming are we talking about to make this all work?
I know that's a lot of questions but from looking at previous posts it's easier to give accurate information if you provide as much details as possible.
At its most basic all I want is a timer to power a servo to go one way in the morning and the reverse in the evening...
