Hi I have 8 x venetian blinders in my apartment controlled by Fibaro Remote Shutter 2 and HC2. No physical switches have been installed, so the only way I operate them is via app or scenes triggered elswhere from dimmer or relays on the walls - works ok but not very intuitive as I use double/triple clicks for predefined scenes. I would like to add some complex and comfortable solution to control them all them with a remote controller but in more intuitive way. I have found something like this below: 1. https://www.remotec.com.hk/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/ZRC-100-User-Manual_V1.57_20130430.pdf - looks like it support scenes, and multilevel devices but.. I see it too complicated to use it for example for just quick opening and closing a blinder etc. 2. http://www.z-wave.in/shop/smart-remotes/duwi-remote/ - looks much better in term of ergonomy. Will be much quicker to operate devices by my elder parents. 8 groups - with two buttons plus 3 extra scenes but I wonder if I will be able to operate lamellas with that one so that when I hold the button it will move the blinder and stops once released or just fully open/close when triggered no matter how long/short you pushed it. 3. https://www.fakro.pl/att/COMMON/offer/servis/user_manuals/ZWP10_FAKRO.pdf - has 4 groups and 2 channels each (A bit less intuitive than duwi) thus able to control 8 blinders in total - enough for me. Support multilevel (longer click, longer than 0.5s) and basic so I will be able to set lamellas angle as proffered. The only drawback I see, there is no possibility to run a scenes so no option to control let's say a group of blinders in whole room. Have anyone tried to test mentioned controllers, maybe can advise something else to try? I am interested in your experience and opinions. Thanks
