Hi (I cant post in the home automation tread)
I need help please before I commit and buy.. I am disabled and would like to automate so tasks in my room.
I have some electric knowledge, not allot. I am a pc Tech but no programing.
The things I want to do: 1. Close the blind at specific time (I would like to add a light sensor to open and close the blind on light condition as well) 2. I have some 12v LED downlights that I would also like to control via the light sensor. 3. Have a push button on off switch to override everything (switch of the lights and close the blinds)
I have a 12v power supply (an old UPS) That is it for now.
I am looking to get this:

The step i want the code to take this: At certain time in the morning or when i press the button or when it gets light open the blinds If it gets darker switch on the lights and close the blinds halfway at night close or when i press the button the blinds and switch of the lights (if i can make the lights go of say 3min after the blinds closed it will work nice. Give me time to get into bed
Can the parts i want to get do this, do i need something extra and would someone help me with the coding please.
