Hardware: Servos and IR Sensor

I have 5 windows and plan on controlling them with servos. I only purchased two at the moment and I’m hoping the smaller one will work (both smaller and cheaper) – the blinds are heavy and just rotating them takes a little oompf (so actually I’m hoping that even the big one works – let alone the small one). So here’s my first purchase:

I already have the Arduino, wires, and IR remote.

Neither servo arms are quite the full 1 1/2″ distance needed to fully open and close the blinds…but they’re pretty close and either should work fine for what I want.
