I would really like to retrofit our existing blinds and this seems like the best option but the total cost of ~$800 is preventing me from pulling the trigger. This also "feels" like it's an item that shouldn't cost that much to make & from what I've read online others are in agreement. If they could find a way to lower the cost I'd be onboard & I think they'd make more total profit based on volume.iblinds use z-wave. I have been happy with mine.
Yup. but it's just a difficult concept for someone just getting their feet wet. It usually takes $3K of buying the wrong stuff firstI’d pick the controller first.
that said - Somfy is very popular. They have a cheaper Bali lineup available at Lowe’s and Home Depot. Their own label stuff is a bit nicer and you can get a good price and support at avoutlet.com
