Hello, I've recenently bought an Echo Dot and I've used it for things like turning my pc on through IFTT and turning my lights on via switches I bought on aliexpress. For my next project I want to controll my rollercurtains (see picture). The problem is that I have no idea what elektronics I should use.
I want to spend a maximum of €30,- to controll my roller curtains. I only have a little experience programming games, but nothing elektronic. I have soldered before and I have people that can help me do the soldering. I also would like to use an raspberry pi zero w for this project because it's cheap and I can always salvage it for another project.
My questions are:
What elektronics should I use? And does anyone have a good tutorial on how I can fit everyting together and program it?
(I live in the Netherlands and English is my second language)
