    Is there a way we could use lower voltages? Are there any other modules for this on the market?

    SilverApe, I think the best way is to DIY with Arduino or Netduino, Gadgeteers,etc. and use it with a virtual device

    viperlodz, SilverApe, a hobby servo is a step motor to drive it you must have a "Step Motor Controller"...

  • Hi Krikroff, like the roller shutter module but then for a lower voltage?

    There is no such z-wave device on the market?

    I will have to investigate the arduino and such then
