Realtek Ameba RTL8195 - Smart Curtain System


Recommended Posts

The focus of this project is to demonstrates how easy it is for Ameba Wi-Fi Dev. board to communicate with our smart phone via MQTT protocol. Phone to microcontroller communication used to be very difficult as they use totally different hardware interface and phone get its data mainly through the network. Now with a Wi-Fi enabled microcontroller like Ameba RTL8195AM, communication with our phone becomes a bliss. 

Of course, in this video, only a mini window is used for demonstration purpose, but controlling a real  window should not be a problem if you simply replace the servo motor with a bigger DC step motor and change the source code accordingly. 

With this smart curtain system, you may,
1. Remotely control your curtain to open or close instantaneously
2. Check your curtain status according to the MQTT message received 
3. Link with the previous weather station project and automate your room from there
