Motorized Drapery Rod – get more or less light without getting up

Sunlight is nice (or not). It doesn’t really matter what side you stand on in the natural light debate, the important thing is, it’s 2017 and we shouldn’t have to open our curtains like low tech peasants anymore. The Motorized Drapery Rod lets you open your drapes with the push of a button.

This will work with curtains that are attached by rings. Simply install the rod like you would any other and plug it in. It works on AC power with a remote (3 AAA batteries needed for that) and you’re all ready to go.

This is pretty simple, no computer parts, it’s not really part of the smart home but if you’re handy, you can probably figure something out to bring it further into the 21st century. Or just be happy that you can close the windows from the couch to kill the glare on the TV without having to get up. It’s the small things in life. The Motorized Drapery Rod comes in a number of sizes and starts at $86.59.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
