According to our good friend Scott from The Friend Group, the DT82TV DOES have soft-start (pull curtain to get the motor going). It also has 5 wires (Blue, black, white, brown, green). Does this motor do it all?!

"Yes, it is with a remote controller.
and the motor has soft-start (pull curtain and motor will start)"

"Yes, the motor can be controlled by livolo switch, but pls use switch for motor, not for light.
The motor can also be controlled by Fibaro / Z-wave controller."

Per Scott,

Quote
DT82TN can be contolled by remote controller,
DT82TS is controlled by your wired wall switch and wired smarthome controller
DT82TV can be controlled by our remote controller, and your wired wall switch and wired smarthome controller.
DT82TS has no light-touch start function, when you pull the curtain, motor will sun to open or close curtain,
82TN and 82TV has this function.

It does appear the DT82TV does it all.

I ordered one. Will be connecting it to a Aeon Labs DSC14104 (US frequencies) and a Leviton momentary switch.

How do you power the DT82TV?  Do you have to hardwire it?

Yes, the DT82TV takes A/C power. Dooya site has a DT82LE too, that has a lithium ion battery.

I got my track and motor.

I have it all wired and hooked up, so currently it can be operated by a momentary switch (through the Aeon Labs DSC14104), via the included 433mhz remote, as well as the curtain tug soft-start. Haven't found where I stashed my Vera 3 yet, but I imagine since I can operate it through the momentary switch, the Z-Wave portion shouldn't be a problem.

Fairly quiet. Unscientific sound meter app on phone puts it about 35dBa for the curtains operating.

Hello,

Has anyone got a DT82TV working with a Fibaro FGR222? When I try and calibrate the system I get a bit of movement and the LED on the Fibaro flashes red.

Anybody got an idea what the issue might be?

Thanks,

Marcus

Hi,

This is a kickstarter that is about to go to market https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/41829059/slide-make-your-existing-curtains-smart. Lowest cost solution I have seen thus far and works on existing rail.

Cheers Rene

How exactly do you wire the DT82TV, it has 5 wire, on Fibaro roller Shutter 2? I can't calibrate it.

I have to calibrate 34 motors DT82TV with Fibaroo Roller Shutter 2 and I use Fibaro Home Center2. When I try and calibrate the system I get a bit of movement and that's it, I think that must be a way to calibrate it without using light.

Please post if you find a way.  I tried for days without success.
