Back in July before I fished up this Room remodel I took a few videos to show the Bali Autoview Z-wave plus in action.

I also have a bunch of pictures here on dropbox.

Battery life has been better then I thought (or not working) still showing 100% with about 1 open and close per day since July.

since you have battery operated, can you clue me in please: (1) i have 9 windows not same sizes but about 31-1/8 W, 65-1/4 H, do i need dual or just single battery wand, (2) is the battery case visible or hidden somewhere behind the headrail. i dont want to deal with replacing batteries periodically but i dont want to use transformer because the power cords will be very unsightly in a room where we entertain guests and relatives. it's an inside mount and hard wiring 9 shades is not an option. thanks

The battery wand on mine is hidden between the window frame and blinds on my install, this might vary depending on how your window is setup. I went with one wand on mine, but I can plugin a 2nd anytime in the future if I choose too. From what I know the hight of the window make a bigger impact on battery life then the width due to how long the motor runs to pull the blinds up.
