    I am looking for a device to open and close curtains. Prefer something that is relatively quiet and can be used on IR remote so a Harmony SST-768 remote control will work with it. Any suggestions?

    Smarthome sells other controllers, in addition to the expensive, but apparently trustworthy Makita.

    Several people here use this one, although they have mostly commented that it is not quiet:

    I have not heard any comments on this one that is cheaper than the Makita:

    Can't comment on your particular remote control issue-- except that it's probably much harder to just find a drape controller, than it is to rig up an IR capability for it. At worst case, you can use X-10 and IR to control them.
