I am looking at buying some motorised curtains for the living room. I am liking the look of the Dooya chinese ones. From what I read they are ok and lots cheaper than other ones I have seen. As far as I can tell I have two options
The DT52E motors which work off 433MHz remote control or are activated by pulling the curtain slightly. I would need to get a Broadlink RM Pro (which can send out the 433Mhz signal like a remote).
Or I get the DT52S motors which have a four wire control to a wall switch and then get a Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 unit to control them via z-wave Like in this example. Unfortunately these dont have the function that you can start them with a slight pull on the curtains.
I am in two minds because as much as possible I try and make the smart home stuff easy for anybody to use. So I really like the idea of the curtains opening with a slight pull. but this needs the DT52E motors and I am not sure I trust the RF link to work reliably all the time. On the other hand if I go for the DT52S motors they work off Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 z-wave control and I know they will work well as I already have Fibaro dimmer 2 units and they are rock solid.
Has anybody used the Broadlink RM Pro to control curtains? does it work reliably? how about the dooya curtain motors? anybody used these?
