We want to automate some existing motorized AC shades in our house. Most of our house is controlled via Lutron Radio RA2 but these shades pre-date the Radio RA2 install and getting these shades RA2 compatible is pretty much a dead end and all I really need to do is put the shades on a timer for the most part - manual control is not that important and intermediate stopping points are never used (open or closed only).
With that intro, we have 3 “dumb” AC shades with internal control limits. There are 3 up-stop-down type switches ganged together on the wall. Are there any z-wave AC motor controls that I could mount inside of our existing 3-gang remodel box (fit 3 of them, that is)? We don’t need wall switches as well so we could cover the controls with a blank face plate. (We’ll do all the control from the iPad or some tabletop device).
Just to head off other questions - the reason to mount motor controls in this place is that the shades are mounted inside a custom built enclosure that would be very difficult to remove/refit (I didn’t build this, just bought the house).
Thoughts? The ABMHZ and AC1-ZW both look a little large and that Aeon product sounds a little scary (in terms of relay isolation on the up/down motor).
