Making Automatic Blinds

Has anyone tried to upgrade their blinds so you can open and closed the slats with the touch of a button? I have 4 blinds in the master bedroom and instead of having to open all 4 in the morning and close them at night I would like to be able to push a button and do it. I have seen some suggestions of using a stepper motor to do that, anyone tried this?

Thanks so much!!!

I don't know why you would need a stepper motor, how about just using one of those little motors they use in toys and erector sets. There DC so the are reversible. Depending on how fancy you want to get you can add limit switch and/or auto reverse.
