Automated blinds controlled via computer and remote

A neat project showing automated ‘venetian’ blinds controlled via computer and remote.

I once had a mod done that used a stepper motor from a hard disk that turned the blinds via the wand on the blinds. That way it was able to leave the blind in tact and could be taken with me, as indeed it was, when I moved house. Unfortunately the stepper motor didn’t have the power it appears this mod has. And what’s more .. my new house doesn’t have these type of blinds.

Now I need the same kind of solution to operate vertical blinds!
