Bugger,  forgot to cc the list again!!!

By the way, do your homework carefully with a purchase of this nature. 
As a builder I have seen some "Very Shonky" Roller Shutter installations 
and in every case the owners of the property have had some difficulty in 
getting remedial work done under warranty.  Check references and look at 
work is my advice.

Hi John

There are a variety of ways to achieve this kind of result ranging from
a simple daily timer to Sunlight Sensing, Heat Sensing or light level
sensing. To achieve any kind of automatic control however the actuating
mechanism will need to electric as some form of mechanical reduction
gearing is involved.
