MySmartBlinds – open your windows without the work (some exclusions apply)

Tired of lifting and lowering your blinds yourself like some sort of commoner? Good news then, MySmartBlinds turns your manually run window coverings into an motorized miracle. Provided you have the right type of shades that is.

This easy to install kit requires no tools and can be programmed to follow the sun or just scheduled to open and shut when you need them to. The battery last from 6 to 12 months at a time and can be charged with a USB connection or by optional solar panel (sold separately).

The downside is that this device only works on 2-2.5 inch horizontal blinds. Granted, these aren’t hard to find but if your house has standard miniblinds, then you’re in for an extended shopping trip if you want to use this. Another sore point is this is iOS only. It also lack smarthome integration options.The company is working on all of these things, however. It’s a nice start, call me when there’s a miniblind option I can work from my Android system. MySmartBlinds are $99.99.
