Advice, newbie and devices

Hi all,

I’m about to venture into the world of home automation, I’m a Java developer by trade and I’m hoping that I will be able to get stuff up and running quickly.

I’m going to start with the house lighting, then move onto some remote curtains and blinds.

I have purchased a load of lightwaveRf equipment and it all looks pretty straightforward, Butni really need some guidance on what curtain/blind devices to use I have seen these is some support for somfy, but is there any other group of devices that would be better compatible with openhab?
