Remember, the drop-down TV lift mechanism can be placed in cabinets of almost all dimensions. With electric linear actuators manufactured by the world automation leader Progressive Automations a person dealing with home automation project can be one hundred percent sure that under the conditions of wise measurements and careful installation the linear motion technology will fully justify the sum of money spent on the project. Furthermore, the cost-efficiency of linear actuator solution provided by Progressive Automations allows implementing this technology in terms of home automation projects like constructing the automated TV lifts for kitchen cabinets.  

The drop-down technology allows installing large TV monitors not solely inside cabinets but also attach them seamlessly in surfaces of the ceiling where there is enough free space to keep the dimensions of the whole lifting construction. 

Parts required for the drop-down TV lift for the kitchen cabinet are as follows: 

  1. The linear actuator of 600 kilograms lifting force with a stroke of 320 millimeters;  
  2. The linear actuator of 150 kilograms lifting force with a stroke of 150 millimeters;
  3. Arduino Uno microcontroller for preprogramming the working pattern of the linear actuator moving the active part of the drop-down TV lift;
  4. 12V power supply;
  5. various metal pipes and strips of dimensions; 20 * 5 millimeters for welding the metal frame to hold the construction together and be the basis of the TV lift hidden inside the kitchen cabinet.

For the construction of hanging TV lift mechanism attached to the cabinet, the craftsman can use any of already available kitchen cabinets. The only requirement for the right cabinet choice is the dimensions of the monitor required to be installed within. Dimensions of the cabinet have to be a bit bigger accordingly. 

For the controlling part and the effective work and movement of every detail including two linear actuator mechanisms, the use of Arduino Uno would be the most effective solution.
