This is exactly what I have been looking for! I have a damper on my air ducts in my house, and often I want to change the air flow based on the temps. This would allow me to adjust the flow automatically!!!!

@andrewjb44 It's so nice to know that our Switch Bot can solve your problem. Yes, the initial idea why we create Switch Bot is for this kind convenience.

@yourconnery The real issue might be connecting it to something like this . I'm assuming through IFTTT I will be able to create a rule that when my ecobee3 reacthes a certain the switch would open the damper.

@andrewjb44 Great idea to build a smart duct damper. But from the image you sent it looks like the handle swing distance is very long?

@yourconnery depends on what you call long. The distance between winter and summer is short, but it does look like the handle calls for a large distance to travel. I would be happy to beta test a unit, and film it for you if you are interested.

@andrewjb44 Great thanks for your exploring for Switch Bot! Yes, the handle distance is large as I see. Could you measure the actual distance needed to push then we can figure out the switch possibility theoretically.

@yourconnery Hi so I finally remembered to measure the distance. The swing is about 4 inches.

@yourconnery Do you think it could be rigged to cover 4 inches?

@andrewjb44 Sorry for my late reply... These days we are busy with our Kickstarter campaign... 4 Inches seems too large to the tiny bot (spec: ). Yes, as you said I should try some tricky ways. Let us develop an accessory to solve this and will update you if any progress. Thanks for your information.
