DIY Blinds Z-Wave Automation
« on: April 29, 2016, 06:57:34 pm »
Will this work? I want to buy this random blinds motor from China:

And then this Z-Wave motor controller:

Wire all myself, or maybe hire an electrician to connect motor to switch and controller.

Will I be able to control blinds with my Vera Plus using this setup?

This is what it is designed for so should work fine. Just ensure you have that neutral wire.
I would go the same way but I don't have the 240v near the window and I dont like external wires. I am still looking for a good solar powered unit where the solar panel is hidden behind the blind and the wires are very small.

Is there a Z-Wave motor controller available in USA / Canada which is Gen 5 Z-Wave Plus?
