I like to create new things ranging from electronics to sewing.

Intermittent Fan Controller

controllers and it's signals I simply cannot sleep with a fan constantly blowing on me. My husband can not sleep without a fan on him.

Initially, I thought we’d never be able to find a happy medium, since ceiling fans are designed to be either on or off all night. I realized that if I could find a way to turn our fan off after five minutes and then back on after another 20 minutes, we’d both be able to sleep well. So, I built an adjustable, intermittent fan controller with roughly $30 worth of electronics and two Python scripts.
