The temperature sensor worked well. However the motor could not run by the time of submission. Nor did the switch. The prototype is basic since it does not include a window, nor does it include the closing function. Besides, the motor speed requires calibration to safely operate a window. Safety features to prevent accidents would have to be integrated. 

When the window is open, it sends an email to the occupant using the IFTTT set up (image below). I would wish to incorporate an override function where the room occupant could instruct the window to close in case of a security risk. Alternatively, the window may be designed to open in such a way that it is always secure.
