I am planning to get shades from the Shade Store:
They offer motorization with the Somfy System, but before doing this, I would like to ensure that people have been able to integrate them with Smart Things and ensure that I know exactly what need to be purchased in order to complete the install.
From what I’ve read on the forums, this will work.
It seems that I need to have the Shade Store guys install the blinds and configure them with a regular Somfy Telis 4 RTS remote. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002TXKMR2/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=282YFWOBA7TXT&coliid=I3AUYYNW31JLZ8
Then, it looks like I need to get a somfy Z-wave to RTS interface: http://www.automatedshadestore.com/shop/product-info.php?Somfy_Z-Wave_to_RTS_Interface_NEW-pid561.html
and follow instructions posted by Tyler Lange in this thread:
Basically, my questions are:
-Any other parts needed, or is this it?
-Have people been happy with this setup? Motorized blinds are expensive, so before I spend all this money, I want to make sure I don’t end up disappointed
