MySmartBlinds aims for Amazon Alexa integration to enable voice control

MySmartBlinds aims for Amazon Alexa integration to enable voice control
Home automation company MySmartBlinds, which released its smartphone-controlled, solar-powered window blinds in 2016, has started a funding initiative to enable voice control using the Amazon Alexa voice assistant.
Home automation company MySmartBlinds, which released its smartphone-controlled, solar-powered window blinds in 2016, has started a funding initiative to enable voice control using the Amazon Alexa voice assistant.

The MySmartBlinds hub was launched on Kickstarter earlier this month to give new and existing MySmartBlinds users access to their window coverings through their Amazon Echo. This means in addition to energy savings, sun-tracking, in-app scheduling and solar charging, MySmartBlinds users will now be able to enjoy voice control and access their blinds when they are away from home.

“Bringing Bluetooth control to the cloud will give us access to so many home automation systems in 2018,” said MySmartBlinds CEO and Founder Emily Brimhall. MySmartBlinds will listen to Alexa after the hub is delivered to Kickstarter backers, and throughout the year, the hub will allow MySmartBlinds to connect with Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and more.

The MySmartBlinds hub was launched on Kickstarter on November 1. MySmartBlinds were born on the idea that automated window coverings can be simple. “We want to make products that are simple to install, simple to use, and simply take care of everyday tasks, so people can focus on the things in their lives that matter most,” the team said.

MySmartBlinds offers custom-made blinds to fit in any window frame snugly and securely. Its patented SmartLock technology allows homeowners to snap MySmartBlinds in place fast with the push of a lever.

The blinds are very customizable – with options for automation, color customization, and mount type. Also, the Automation Kit adapts standard 2-2.5” horizontal blinds into smart blinds. With the Kit, users can quickly install patented motor in their blinds and have immediate smartphone connectivity, allowing them to schedule events for their blinds to open and close, as well as enable sun-tracking and Energy Savings mode.
