I have a blind automation project that has been in pieces for years now, but I recently discovered a 3d Model that might get me over my physical form factor issues. I was wondering if anyone has any good guides on solar panels, battery chargers, and power saving best practices.
I’ve looked around and I see some questions people have asked but no good starting points on parts to try and code to make the photon as efficient as possible. Unfortunately my project responds to functions from the cloud, so I don’t know if sleep is possible. I would accept queued functions, like if I tell blinds to open maybe they will 15 minutes later when the Photon wakes up and asks the cloud if it’s received any function requests.
Thanks in advance!
