Hello everybody, like stated in the title this is my first DIY project. To make a long story short, the rope that turned on the ceiling fan of the family's dinner room broke. My dad replace it with a button, but the problem is that I'm the only one in the house tall enough to actually reach it comfortably, hence whenever someone needs to turn on or off the fan they call me. I was hoping to find a simple way to automate the process. I was thinking on using an Arduino or something similar to remotly push on/off the button. Like I said it's my first project so I welcome suggestions and ideas to how to do it.
