FCC approval ( which should mean US distribution as well as EU) for what IKEA has confirmed will be a line of smart blinds. That’s about all we know so far. Analysts are guessing that the price will be around $125 per blind, but it’s not clear if that’s for a retrofit option or an all in one. The handheld remote is using 2.4 GHz, but that could be Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or zigbee.
Most people are guessing it’s going to be zigbee 3.0 and will work with the Phillips hue bridge, but no one knows for sure. They also haven’t announced whether it will work with HomeKit yet or not.
So lots of questions, and normally I wouldn’t post about something still in pre-release, but I know Lutron Typically does their big Serena sale around now and I thought people might want to know that the IKEA option may be available in a few months as it is likely to be much much less expensive.
