Although this topic has been silent for a while I'm quite interested if someone found a good solution.

My idea is to use a fibaro roller / shutter to control the track.

I found this quite affordable track on aliexpress but the seller couldn't tell me if it's possible to hook up an external controller. This track comes with a wired remote so my guess would be that it should be possible but without the wiring diagram it's hard to say for sure.

it'll work with some wire-cutting, but i strongly advice against buying this kind of cheap devices, they make a lot of noise and don't have a long lifespan.

I must admit that one does look really cheap. After some more searching I found a different one that looks somewhat better. One of the photos also shows a motor with a 4 wire (black, brown, green and green/yellow) setup. If black / brown are for forward / backward control then that would work with the fibaro controller out of the box or wouldn't it? The wiring on the dooya DT52S motor it clearly says that the 2 wires are used for that.

that is the biggest problem on aliexpress ... i'm buying alot of things there .. but only if i exactly know what i want.
usally the sellers have no cloue on anything ... and 120USD is quite a risk.

thats the reason why i not have any courtains yet working.
but maybe i will go down that road soon and just buy one for a test ..

Just a short update for the people who will bump into this thread. I've bought the Dooya DT52S motor (http://en.dooya.com/products_3.html) via aliexpress.com and attached it to the Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 (FGRM-222). This combination works great for me. The build quality of the motor is pretty solid actually. Not something you might expect at first hand. There are some knock-off motors on aliexpress too but the Dooya stuff seems to be the best.

This is exciting. The Somfy motors were quoted at ~$3,000 for our bedroom.  $1,500 for the Somfy Glidea motor/wireless RTS control and bar...and $1,500 for a compatible 155" decorative bar and all the rings ( http://www.ironartbyorion.com/somfytraversing.asp?catid=97 )...way out of our budget.

Thanks as always CW-Kid for scouting the coolest HA tech.

i also can confirm the Dooya DT52S working just fine with a Fibaro Shutter2
still abut pricy .. but they do work.

i ordered another bunch of another brand .. which costs less than half ... hopefully they do the same way.

will report in a few days with some results ... shipment is waiting for me at FedEx already ;)
