In checking once again with Hunter Douglas, there is no way to control the Platinum shades from a central automation system. Only with the Hunter supplied remotes and switches. You would purchase the satellite eye, one for each shade, for something in the area of $75 each.
Since you have the old PowerRise, you actually have much more flexibility for control if you want to go in that direction.
You can control them with the ESI RP60-HDP module that sells for around $125 each. You would need one for each shade.http://www.elec-solutions.com/produc...p/rp60hdp.html
In addition, you would need one (total) ESI R2D7 Serial Bridge to receive the RS-232 information from your Crestron. They are about $175.http://www.elec-solutions.com/produc...r2d7/r2d7.html
It is possible with this system to plug an IR or an RF receiver into the system for independent control from your Crestron system with a hand held remote.
Those RP60-HDP modules can be put in a J-Box at each shade, or my preference is a larger electrical box with all of them in a central location with wiring (low voltage) run to each shade.
Once you go to the ESI control/interface system, there are dozens of combination and configurations that can be put together. I'm quoting one local job now where ESI will put together the box holding all the modules and send it to us ready to install.
If you desire us to supply any of this type equipment for you, we should take it to email so as to not violate the forum rules.
