In another thread i found someone who used a drapery controller to run his masking system. He modified the controller so he could controll it at a panel by his seating area. the link to the site that explains this is here http://web.infoave.net/~jeffwelliott/index.htm
If you click on the Masking system link and then click on the drapery motor, he explains how he modified the drapery controller. I am wanting to do something similar to this, but i am a little lost on what he did. What type of buttons should i use? A normally off - Momentarily on push button to give it power, and what type of switch to use to tell it to go up and to go down? A normal on/off switch or some type of ON/ON switch? Can anyone help explain this to me a little better as to how to do this and what types of switches and wires to use?
He also said he has a x10 appliance module inline with it. If i have the the power running through my press button that is a normally off-momentarily on button, why would i need a x10 module? Couldn't i just leave the drapery controller plugged in and then just push the button when i want it to move? Why would i need an x10 module?
