Motorized rollup shades - connect to my elk?
I have two closets from which I want to remove the awful sliding doors and replace them with motorized rollup shades. I only need two settings - fully closed, and fully open; no stops.

I googled and found a lot of stuff, but the reasonably priced options seem to be self contained systems - they come with a motor and a remote, and "automating" them involves teaching the IR codes.

Ideally, I would instead connect the motors to outputs on my elk. Open the contact, the shade opens, close the contact, it closes.

Does such a thing exist at a reasonable price? Or am I missing something about the ones that come with just the IR remote?

Thanks very much for any advice!
