I have a small (3’ wide x 14" tall) transom-style window above my kitchen cupboards.
Every other morning one of my kids, sitting at our kitchen island and enjoying breakfast, will complain about the sun hitting their eyes. I find an empty box, or something, and place it on top of the cupboard to block the sun.
I already have a slew of automated roller blinds for larger windows but this window is right up against the ceiling and wouldn’t accommodate a ‘top-down’ shade. It’s got to be something that sits on the top of the cabinet and raises up.
As I have plenty of space atop the cabinet I’m envisioning a battery powered device that can raise a small, thin/light piece of opaque material 90 degrees (from 3:00 to 12:00) and back down on zwave command.
Can anyone think of a way to accomplish this? Thanks for any ideas!
