    Hello everyone.

    I am thinking about installing window shutter motors, and I would like to make some shutter programmer.

    I have to find out about how that motors work. For example, I don`t know if they have a some limit switches. By now, I don’t have them installed....but I started to think about how to make some little programmer (by hour)....Simply one our to our to close.....I was thinking about using a little 220v programmer (by day, by our), or using two simple alarm clocks for the two actions.
    And after having something to trigger the event, I could trigger some switch/relay for some delay to open or close the shutter.

    If that motors have the limit switches, it doesn’t mother if I exceed the time to fully open or fully close.
    If they don’t have that limit sitches, I could try a delay operation below the limit point.

    Have you tried to make something like this? Some advice?

    Thank you in advance.

    This is very similar to a chicken coop door opener/closer. There are several threads about them on this site and elsewhere. Limit switches are normally used.
