Disclosure: We are dealers of Leviosa Motor Shades - the Affordable choice for custom sized premium motor shades.
The intent is to provide options and discussion for superior motorized shades that integrate with ST and other systems, including smart speakers (Alexa, Google Home, etc.).
Leviosa Motor Shades utilize standard wifi technology (2.4GHz) and require a bridge (Leviosa Zone), each bridge commanding up to 6 groups of shades (unlimited number per group). Leviosa motor shades directly integrate with Samsung SmartThings and other home automation systems. Unlike other motor shades that operate on ‘dimmer’ or ‘switch’ settings, Leviosa has its own customized and ST approved device profile, listed under “All Brands” in Devices. No special DH skills needed to link up with Leviosa.
