I want smart blinds... or maybe sharks with friggin lasers attached to their heads

It looks like there are several smart blind products on the market now. I want to get one that will work with both vertical and horizontal blinds (many of mine are vertical), and I'm intrigued that some of them have options for solar power. I'm curious to know if anyone has tried any of these products and can verify that they pair directly with Hubitat, and whether they would recommend them? What I want to be able to do is have Hubitat control these as part of a schedule, i.e. closing them when it is dark or when we are away, opening them during the middle of the day during winter, or morning and late afternoon in summers, etc.

If you have any interest in z-wave shades (not sure about blinds), then I suggest looking into @ZebraBlinds.

No, I need something that works with existing blinds.

I'll take the sharks, thank you. I leave my blinds closed most of the time.
