Are you using C4 to manage?  What driver and C4 OS are you using?

Yes, just using the free Somfy MyLink driver. Works great! Our use is pretty simple. Open. Close. We don’t try and stop at any point along the way or anything like that.

Serena is the retail version of Triathlon shades - less fabric selections and less advanced options but uses the same great motors. Triathlon - more fabrics better options - WIDR widths. Siv

Jet airplane, huh? guess we are flying different planes.  Having actually compared them - the "cheap" blinds are not particularly loud, in either absolute or relative terms.  Louder than Lutron? Sure,

I went through this exercise a couple years ago.  I decided on shades with Rollease Acmeda motors.  That didn’t limit fabric selections and the Annex4 drivers (free) are quite good.    I would

Thanks. If you don't mind me asking -- what is the device you're using to do the bridge between the LAN (WiFi) network and the Z-Wave Somfy Radios?

I’m using MyLink. It connects to WiFi and the shades.

Anyone have experience with Lutron and QMotion? I am in the process of having roller blinds and a couple of roman blinds. 
 

I already have wired Silent Gliss curtains and romans in one room but they are really expensive and C4 integration is terrible. They have been bulletproof over the last 5 years or so. 
 

I’m looking at wireless for the next rooms and Lutron and QMotion look to be suitable. Very difficult to choose between then.

Also consider if you have multiple shades in one room , lutron is the only game in town that all shades operate in sync 

Mine are Somfy and if they’re not perfectly in sync they’re pretty damn close. Close enough that I can’t tell.

Setting up scenes in Hunter Douglas and then adding them in on the C4 side works damn near perfectly too...

Thanks - mine came with Graber's VirtualCord device + app.  Do you know if I can swap-out and use MyLink instetad?  I was able to get the Somfy Z-Wave driver to work directly by hand-editing the XML file for the driver (the driver itself is encrypted, the XML wrapper is not) and putting in Graber's Z-Wave ProductID.  But you don't get status of the shade and you can't stop mid-way (which looks like you can't do with MyLink either).

No clue. I just told my guy I wanted the MyLink from the start. I can stop the blinds part way with the MyLink, but the status then shows as a question mark. I have no reason to stop mine halfway though - I want them either all the way up or all the way down so I didn’t care about that even being an option.
