Interior decoration is certainly not just limited to arts, these days. It has become quite more than the patterned paints, Plaster of Paris ceilings, matching carpets and the old paintings. In this “quite more,” the electrical appliances do play a vital role.After all, it’s the lighting that gives the attractive finishing touch to the interiors. Adding more to that, a pair of electronic curtain openers not only gives a sense of elegance but also shows the classic geek side. These amazing makeovers to the interiors never seem easy and hence are often done by a professional as no one wants to take chances in doing this on their own which might result into a mess. Interestingly, if you are slightly inclined to electronics and have a moderate know-how about basic electronics, you can do this on your own by spending just a weekend.
The blog we explore today details one such electronic makeover of the interiors where you install an ambient lighting system in your house and also make the curtains get controlled electronically. In this DIY, you don’t need to hack or tear apart any gadget, but just need to be a good researcher in getting the correct component and be calm and smooth in installation and testing of the set up. Also, you don’t need to change the power set up as the attachments used here are compatible with the household voltages. What makes home interior decoration based automation different is varied insides of a house and creativity of its owner. Some might want a chandelier for large effect of interior lighting while some would prefer small, subtle shade that throws in just the right amount of light. With this DIY, you can do anything with the lighting, install any kind of bulb or CFL or halogen and simultaneously control the curtains for the window or the door as you desire. These two systems, even though totally different, can be controlled using a single system controller which too you can install anywhere convenient. All you need to take care is that you have enough power points installed and the house you are automating is yours!!
