Thanks to Eric Hompe who commented on the post about this controller.

“I ordered the Blinds Controller at my local Lowes for $72. It was a hassle until I found the right person in the window treatment department, because the controller wasn’t in Lowes’ computer system. It arrived at my house by UPS two weeks later. I was able to pair it to my three Somfy window blinds and control each blind from the controller unit easily and reliably. You can actually do this part first, before pairing the controller to Iris, if you wish. Then you pair the controller itself to Iris, and once that is done, pair each blind’s channel (or node, as they call it) to Iris as well, following the YouTube video they provide. You can add all your blinds from the controller one after the other, and they will all appear in the Devices That Have Been Paired window. Click Continue and watch them appear on your list of devices.

There was a stumbling block that took me two days to figure out. I was convinced for a long time that the blinds were not responding to Iris. Finally I realized why they included the Reverse Blinds Direction option: when I clicked and saved that, the blinds started working! Turns out the blinds weren’t going up when I clicked the Up button because I was actually sending a Down command, and the blind was already down… hence, no movement! Once I selected Reverse Blinds Direction, they started working like a champ!

Buy this product without fear.”

The above comment got me to visit my local Lowe’s to ask about it’s existence. From what I understand the blind controller is only available if you purchase custom blinds from Bali.
