Just curious 2hat smart blinds people are using with smartthings? Looking for something that works with the new app. Thanks for the feedback.
Springs Window Fasions / Graber / Bali (all the same blinds using Somfy motors under different names) ZWave blinds work very well. (but make sure the blinds’ motors have firmware above 11.3). I have quits a few I bought from ZebraBlinds. These are generally semi-custom or full custom units and are priced accordingly.
Ikea Fyrtr work very well also if you prefer Zigbee and if full customization isnt as important.
What do you mean by full customization?
Size, colors, fabric styles, valence styles, etc
Oh, ok & thanks for replying. I know ikea has only 1 color & I would have to cut it to.fit my window, which is something I do t want to do. Looks easy but still hesitant.
Yep. I saw the way to hack the Ikea, freat units if they fit your use, Im just not going to take a hacksaw to something I paid over a hundred bucks for and voids the warranty. Ill let the factory do it for me and pay extra.
I have corded horizontal blinds and I bought iBlinds to retrofit them. I’ve had a few snags which are mostly noted in the thread below but overall I’m happy. For the price, compared to buying new blinds with integrated motors, it’s a good system. Start at the linked post - everything earlier is speculation and discussion of the Kickstarter approach, going down there are reviews and feedback, including use with the new app.
I cut mine by 1 inch. It actually takes about 15 min per blind and is pretty easy. Next time I would use a miter saw rather than a hack saw to make the cuts easier though.
