I am from India, and am working on a project where I need to automate the closing and opening of venetian blinds.
I have gone thru some materials on the net, and found that at a few places, DC motors(24V) have been used, while at some stepper motors have been. There was also a third kind called tubular motors that have been used for this purpose.
I would like to know, which one of these would be ideally suited for my application?
I am also looking to construct the entire setup myself. What would you suggest as the best method to attach the cords of the blinds to the shaft of the motor?
I wouldnt want to make use of X10 stuff, at this point of time.
