    Default Smart Home Newbie Help.

    I need to do a bit more reading up on this but I thought that I would ask general opinion for a solution to my first time project.

    I need 4 off 1000mmx1750mm motorised window blinds. I'm toying with the idea of having them open/close dependant on outside light level + need to be able to override them manually. I also have two lighting circuits that need to be controlled.

    Can someone steer me in the right direction as to what kit I need and suggested suppliers, trade or retail as I work in the controls industry as a HVAC control design engineer.

    Have a look at They only do the motors. But then you can choose your own blinds.
    Somfy also do blinds. Just do a google for their address.
    Another one is the swish autoglide system, they do various styles from remote only to timer and sunset and dawn detection. These are for curtains though.
    As for the control side. X10 would be a good place to start looking.
    Some sites to look at.
