I’ve just ordered a couple of Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 devices, the plan being to install them into some Venetian Blinds to both raise/lower the blinds and adjust the slat angle.
There are a couple of videos on Youtube showing this working, but I can’t find any project pages showing how best to setup/configure it.
I therefore have a few questions, any and all advice/pointers gladly received.
I realise I need motors to drive both the movement and the change of slat angle. The specific blind I’m looking at is quite wide at over 9 feet, therefore I suspect I’ll need a high torque/low speed motor to raise and lower the blinds…appropriate recommendations available in the UK gladly received. Also it’s unclear from the Youtube vid but I assume he’s using a different motor for the slat angle adjustment, any recommendations here? Lastly will I need two Fibaro controllers per blind, one for raise/lower and a different one for the slats?
Could anyone point me at either some good youtube vids or project pages where people have done this (not just showing the finished result…but a step by step through the process).
Will I need to use the fibaro app to control the blinds or are there either IFTTT or similar options where I can control them through voice using my GHs?
Thanks in advance
