Hi forum! I need to lift a vent for a little greenhouse when a temperature hits certain temperature (flat cover on top that can be lifted on one end). I have an Arduino I got ages ago and also a temp reader.
My question is in your view what's the cheapest mechanism I can use Arduino controlled to loft that vent (10 kilos). I saw a 2017 post here that said to use a servo, but no detailed were provided in the how. Also googled and saw a linear actuator might work (usd 30). Anything else cheaper that would do the job of lifting something 10kg heavy by 50-100mm or so?
Thanks so much! I'm sure I'll come back again to this forum when I give a crack to the Aruino code.
Thanks so much!
