Automatic window shutter operators?

Hello everyone.
We have been very spoiled in our current rental flat-- all of the window have metal exterior shutters that are automatic (controlled by a button we push on the wall for either up or down and then it goes by itself).

We are moving to a new flat which has a more traditional system-- the one where you use a pole with a hook and wind or crank it to lower and raise the shades.

Does anyone know if there exists some sort of product/motor type thing that can be attached to this sort of system to essentially make this type of shutter system be automatic/motorized? Something that can be retrofitter on and does not require installation of some new system?

Thanks for the help-- google has only shown me fully systems to be installed and not any sort of gadget like I"m imagining that can be hooked on and then power the existing shades.

For every problem there's a solution.

No idea of costs but it is possible.
