Anyone use a tubular motor for coolaroo shade?

I am looking to buy a coolaroo shade for my backyard, and I want to motorize it using one of those tubular motor. Had anyone done something like this before and I can share their experience to guide that I can follow? I saw some blog complaining the coolaroo tube is too big for some tubular motor. any advice is appreciated.

Welcome to the community!

No first hand experience to offer, but if you win the lottery, these guys offer a made to order ZigBee solution. :slight_smile:

I have a similar setup, and would love to automate them.
Hoping someone will chime in who has done it.

I do use a battery drill regularly, one rusted off.

actually it doesn't have to be coolaroo. Does anyone know if a brand of patio shade that's compatible with the generic tubular motor like zerismart? I don't mind buying a different brand of patio shade
