    Does anyone have any experience with Add-A-Motor Drapery Motor for Existing Drapery? I just ordered one for the curtains in my home; I plan on connecting it to my VeraLite. Figured I would see if anyone has any experience with it. The reviews are mixed, but I don't know what to expect.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    The motor arrived today and I hooked it up to a Z-Wave outlet directly below it. So far it's been working great and I'm happy with the purchase and am having fun with it.

    sweet, thanks for the feedback.. I want something like this for my office, I'd like to put reflective tint on it so its like a mirror outside.. but at night it works in reverse so I'd like some blinds that automatically close at sunset and then back open in the morning.

    Sounds good. I have mine open at sunrise and shut at sunset automatically with my VeraLite. So far everything is still working nicely and my curtains have been getting a lot of exercise, lol

    Interesting.
    Product shows for sliding curtains horzontally only.
    Would this work for vertical blinds or would that be too much strain?
