What devices exist to automate roller shutters?

Hi all,
I have some manually operated, 'dumb' roller shutters at my place. I'd like to electrify & automate them without buying completely new electric shutters. Do any of you know if there's a product that already exists to wind up a cord (with a good amount of strength), that's controllable with Hubitat? Ideally it would plug in to a 120v outlet for power?

My shutters currently have the two winding mechanisms:
Sorry, not sure why I couldn't post pics before.

My shutters currently have the two winding mechanisms:

The above mechanism simply spools a string when you crank the handle.

The above mechanism also spools the cord, you need to manually pull the cord down, then the spool self ratchets, and holds on. Also it's a wider, flatter cord.

I'd imagine that I could replace both of these boxes with a motor & wheel mechanism, but it would be nice if something like this already existed so I do not have to make my own.

If you know of anything similar I'd love to hear about it! Or if you have insight on making one, I'd also like to hear it!
