Roof automation and Sgpro.


Recommended Posts

 Obsy number 2 will be underway soon and this time I want to have the roof fully automated with one of those sliding gate motors so it can he controlled with Sgpro, so I'm asking is there a particular motor that people use as there's quite a few out there with varying prices, also how do you get it working with Sgpro because I assume its not going to be plug and play. Your input will be very much appreciated.

TIA, Tony.

I have bought one but not built my obsy yet!

Amazon UK Gate Motor  (currently 129.99 and a 5% off 'voucher' to makes it even cheaper) - this one includes the rails as well (not all the cheap ones do).

This was the cheapest on Amazon and I can confirm that the motherboard inside matches the one that Glen / Astrobloke used on his ROR (see Observatory Automatic Roll off roof control In NINA using an Arduino UNO ).
