Wired motorized shades

Having a house built and was looking at motorized shades. Does anyone know what brand is hard wired but can be controlled via a mastercontroller pc?

Thanks!!

Somfy is one. We prefer the RS485 version for fine control. Power wires (110 AC for big shades and 12 volt DC for smaller ones) and control wires per shade. The control wires goes to a RS485 hub and then to RS232 inexpensive adapter and plug into our "Master Controller".

Seems I may be running short on time to do this, so I was thinking I could just run some wiring through the walls to above the windows. Should I use thermostat wire or do I need something heavier?

Thanks!
