Automatic Light Switching

We want to hook up servos to the light switches to automatically turn the office lights on/off when the main door opens/closes.


In Progress. Initial attempt failed due to insufficient stall torque on the servos (HXT900). Will retry with HS-645MG Ultra-Torque servos.

UPDATE: New servos seem to work well. Prototype implemented and running. Only final installation/cleanup required now. A more portable power supply is also required


  • 2 Laser cut mounts (kspaans/mimcpher have access to the kwartzlab laser cutter)
  • 2 HXT900 servos


Code: "git clone ~j3parker/src/lights/"
