    I too am using the Hunter Douglas PowerRise Honeycomb shades, in fact, I have 10 throughout my house all of which are tied to Homeseer for control. I have found them to be extremely reliable and dependable (despite their price tag), and one set of batteries lasts me about a year with a daily once-up once-down cycle.

    I do have a couple of venetian style blinds that I'd like to automate, although I'm not particularly fond of the external style retrofit options, such as those available from SmartHome. The beauty of the Hunter Douglas shades is the the entire motor mechanism, control, and IR electronics are built into a very sleek, low profile, aesthetically pleasing header.... extremely high WAF.

      I will contact Techniku and see why they are not returning calls. You may need to go through some kind of reseller. I'll post info when I hear back from them.

          Try google searches for drapery controls. The Add-a-motor units came up and they aren't too expensive:

              Compared to the $500 mentioned earlier that's a bargin.

                Yeah, it's all relative, I guess.

                      I took a United AirLines afternoon flight out of Los Angeles back to Boston on Wednesday of this week. After the movie, I looked up at the news features to find CES and HomeSeer on the overhead screens. The clip highlighted the ZWave technology, showed the interview and demo'd the items.
