Title: DIY Tilt
Post by: johnes on January 19, 2018, 01:04:29 pm
I have a bunch of horizontal blinds that I'd like to simply use a device to tilt them (not raise/lower).

I've seen a few guides around but trying to figure out the best way to start.  Has anyone done this recently or seen a decent howto?

I use the MySmartBlinds.com product and love it for my big heavy venetian's, batteries stay charged with the solar panel even here in the Northwest.
However it currently doesn't integrate with any thing (it is a Bluetooth device), I just have it on a set schedule.  Looks like they are adding a hub though in March which will integrate with Alexa, Google, and Smarthings  That may make it possible to integrate with Vera (if it is available on ITTF or has a basic web interface).
