    This won't work with the majority of electric screens as they need the mains switching between the 2 ciruits in the screen motor which this doesn't do.

    The mains relay side is easy to sort out, there are various relay kits about, and they are easy to make. The hard bit is sorting out the IR control. I suspect you could get that as a kit from somehwre too.
