    I have recently built a summerhouse and put a TV behind a cupboard door (for security and space reasons). At the moment I have to open it manually which isn't really a problem but I like the idea of having it on a remote control. I was thinking of purchasing an actuator arm and some of those remote controlled extension leads/socket things. Unless someone had a better idea on how I can go about doing this?

    Thanks

    Picture? Size?

    Normally a door would slide up and down compared to opening out.
    Do you have enough room for an up and over type thing?

    One option might be a door horizontally split widthways so that pulling up the door bottom towards the hinge results in the door creasing in the middle and moving outwards.

    A linear actuator is basically a mo torised piston type arrangement that will push/pull whatever is attached a set distance .

    Look at this
