auto light dep, diy? winch?

Anyone have an auto tarp system for light deprevation?

I am thinking a cheap winch on a timer that tension opens or set up another winch to open.

Any other ideas?

What shape/size are the greenhouses

Do you want internal or external tarp system?

I've got a couple automated blackout greenhouses I built from scratch. There are inexpensive motors specifically designed for this use that are much more accurate than a winch motor.

I got a whole thread on it. In the greenhouse section labeled diy steel greenhouse. Uses cheap rollers made for greenhouses. Its 2017, no one pulls tarps manually anymore!

I guess the golden arm isn't auto. My pops went and constructed his own though with the same type of idea.
It works great for my smaller greenhouse, Before it would have taken two people to cover/uncover, now its only a one person job

An auto-darkening greenhouse has long been on my wish list.
I just ordered 2 winders and a 24v power supply so will soon be living the dream.
