I’m in the market for some roller shards and want to see if anyone has run across something that needs my needs.
- Roller shades (not cellular shades or pleated shades)
- D cell battery wand so I don’t have to replace them constantly.
- batteries integrated into the head rail so they aren’t visible
- true zwave integration rather than RF with a hub that fires off a signal and hopes the blinds get it
I haven’t found anything but wanted to check.
So far I’ve found:
Bali/somfy: AA batteries, exposed wand, RF controls.
Zebra: AA batteries, hidden wand, true zwave shades
Lutron: D Batteries, hidden wand, RF controls, $$$
Powershades: AA batteries, hidden wand, RF controls.
Leviosa: D batteries, hidden wand, RF controls.
Do the perfect motorized roller shades exist? I’m leaning towards the leviosa and hoping the hub works well. I’m surprised there aren’t more true zwave shades other than the zebra.
Thanks for any advice
