Happy Fathers Day everyone (Especially my Dad),

 

So my Dad is real happy with what I have done with the temperature control. He has now challenged me with the issue of the thermostat being across the room from the clock. He has asked me to have the motor run wireless from the Arduino to set the temperature. I have thought this out for the past 2 days and came up with a perfect solution. I designed a way to have the Arduino send a laser beam to a photoresistor on the other side of the room. This will let the power at the motor through and make the temperature raise or lower. Below is a diagram of what I am doing, Pictures will be uploaded today when we have this made and working. Dad is soldering everything right now.

 

Update in a couple of hours!!
