sliding door

Hello, I am new in IT and I would like to make a project of a packaging door for a room with motors that I can control with two buttons and with the Blynk application.
I know some basis, but not enough for my project.

My advice would be to get the project working correctly without Blynk, then look at adding Blynk into the equation afterwards.

If you are starting from scratch I would look at using an ESP32 as your MCU. You will need some sort of motor driver hardware to control the motor(s), or possibly relays if you re using mains powered motors.
You will also need limit switches to prevent the door sliding too far in each direction, unless you are using stepper motors.
You may also need some sort of sensor to prevent the door from closing if there is something or someone in the way. This could be an IR sensor, or pressure strip on the leading edge of the door (which may also be able to act as your limit switch in the closed direction).

It might be worth you taking a look at the technology used in remote controlled car gate systems, which use a mains motor, limit switches and safety sensor, along with a 433MHz remote control and manual override switch., to get an idea a out how all of the components work together.


Sounds like a fun project. It would be a good idea to fully describe the hardware and the requirements prior to getting started with the code.

Thank you for your response (very fast)
