Too many times have I had a spontaneous disco party erupt in my house, but without a disco ball it's not a disco party it's time to change it.
I made a disco ball that deploys with the press of a button on my home assistant dashboard.
it's very simple to put together all you need is a motor, motor driver, a D1 mini, two resistors, two endstop switches and a power supply.
I designed and printed a Mount to hold all the other electronics and the disco ball, as well as a adaptor for the end stop switch so that it's definitely pressed when the disco ball goes up.
if you'd like to see it in action there is a video version of the blog on my YouTube channel.
