So far, have been able to connect a lot of things in my home to my Echo device, without a HUB. I have used the Smarthings app for some of them. Soon, I need to consider a HUB.

MySmartBlinds Bridge Unlocks Google Assistant & Amazon Alexa Support

I just ordered a set of motorized shades from Blindsgalore. To integrate with voice, they sell the Neo hub, and the salesman also told me that the wink hub would work. Has anyone used a Smartthings hub with blindsgalore, or know if it will work?

There was a time this would not have gone unanswered. Did you ever try these blinds with SmartThings? Considering them too. It uses the Neo smart hub, which is from an OEM who sells them to various window coverings companies.

So no direct integration. However, it has an echo integration which allows its scenes to be activated through an echo routine. But you would still need to have the additional hub and use their app to set up the scenes. Hi folks. The two have similar approaches to drivers, for those unfamiliar with the Hubitat Elevation. Anyhow, in my search for drivers for my newly acquired Neo Smart Controller for our outdoor blinds, I came across this thread.

I thought others might do the same, so I wanted to provide you with info on a driver I have created for the Neo Smart Controller with support from a fellow Hubitat Elevation owner, Brian Wilson. You can find it here. I got the API docs from Neo.

Someone in the SmartThings community might like to port it over to SmartThings - an exercise I understand is pretty straightforward.

Hi bigrizz, thanks for the info!! So I would still need to purchase the Neo controller in order to use your solution, is that correct? Hi Naadimre. Yes, you need the Neo controller.

The Neo controller sends the RF signals to the supported blind motor. Ben Ben Edwards March 31,am 2. JDRoberts March 31,am 3. Naadimre Revathi Naadimuthu November 30,am 5. Has anyone seen or created a device handler yet based on this API?

Thread starter Fathedz Start date Oct 7, Fathedz Novice Member. Hi Does anyone know any UK motorised blinds that work with Harmony. I can see a US company on their support site but wondered if anyone had got a U.

Product to work with the Harmony hub?

I've got the Somfy blinds from Controllis. I'm speaking to the UK distributor at the moment and they're looking at a way to get it working. He mentioned a different motor roller that may be available but I'm still waiting to hear from them. Problem is that roller blinds are always going to be RF as you don't need line of sight, which is helpful when the blinds are behind a pelmet or in a large room. Will keep you posted but don't hold your breath.

Didn't know if there was a hack or some kind of interface to make it work. It's not a deal breaker but just didn't want to get the wrong blinds if there did happen to be a compatible system.

Last edited: Oct 9, I've got my early access paid up for two of the Movez zwave ones, supposed to be coming march. I've heard the bluetooth ones are supposed to be good. Love to know if we get an answer to this i would LOVE motorised blinds controlled by iphone or harmony.

Puntoboy Well-known Member. Me too! I was wondering if motorised blinds by tuiss. Massive choice of blinds but only batt operated.Motorized window blinds which raise and lower with a push of a button - or automatically at a certain time - may sound like the stuff of luxury hotels and multi-million dollar mansions.

But it doesn't have to be like this. Just a couple of years ago, motorized blinds were expensive to install, and with few options available to even the most well-heeled property owners looking for their next smart device. But there are a now a range of more affordable alternatives. Some fit to the wall next to your window, then use a motor to pull on the blind cord, raising or lowering as you see fit.

Then there is Ikea, which will enter the smart bling industry in August this year, after a short delay. Lutron Serena Serena by Lutron offers a wide range of smart home connectivity. Serena smart shade by Lutron offer a complete online service for ordering bespoke motorized blinds for your home. You can pick the shade style, fabric and size, types of remote control - everything.

These blinds can be controlled via the Lutron smartphone appor Apple HomeKit including speaking to Siri and using the Apple Watch app. Pella is a high-end solution which fits a motorized blind between the two panes of glass in each of your windows.

These can be controlled via a companion smartphone app, but out of the box there is no further smart home integration - so you can't use Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit or IFTTT to control the blinds.

Instead, you can buy the Pella Bridge, which includes Z-Wave and means the blinds can be controlled by the Wink 2 smart home hub and other Z-Wave systems. There are also Pella Insynctive products including a garage door, bolt lock, door and window sensors that round out its smart home system.

Pella also appeals to the smart energy home owner: Its Designer Series wireless aluminum blinds, along with its cellular shades, are battery-powered, and can be recharged by a thin horizontal solar panel. Ikea had planned to launch its first smart motorized blinds, called Kadrilj and Fyrtur, in April this year.

But, as of Aprilthey have been delayed until August so that Ike can spend more time working on the software used to control the blinds. These battery-powered blinds will connect to Ikea's Tradfri hub, which is used to control the company's Zigbee smart light bulbs.

As ever with Ikea, the selling points of these blinds will likely be their simplicity, a design which fits in almost everywhere, and their price. Somfy is a big name when it comes to the motors which power blinds, as well as outdoor awnings and shutters, plus an increasing range of smart home devices - like flood lights, cameras and alarm systems. Inside the home, Somfy produces smart, motorized systems for window shades, curtains and projector screens.

These can all be controlled via the Somfy smartphone app. This example by Soma is the result of a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. Once installed, the Gear rotates to pull on the cord or chain, raising and lowering your window blind. The company says the device is "guaranteed" to lift any blind weighing up to 10 lbs, or your money back. Just like the Soma, it can run on solar power, but there is also the option to install 12 AA batteries as a backup for when solar power isn't enough to refill the battery.

There's a control button on the device itself, plus an iOS and Android smartphone app for scheduling your blinds, organizing them into groups, and controlling several at once. Gear uses the ZigBee standard to connect to a Samsung SmartThings hub, and from there it can be configured to work with voice commands issued to Alexa and Google Assistant.

Finally, another retro-fit motor option is the Move by Teptron.Motorized window blinds which raise and lower with a push of a button - or automatically at a certain time - may sound like the stuff of luxury hotels and multi-million dollar mansions.

Just go to KeenHome. The newly compatible switch, receptacle, and modules will allow you to control and automate your lamps, fans, small appliances, and electronics from anywhere. The dimmers will allow you to not only control and automate these devices, but also dim and brighten lights as well. By pairing it with SmartThings, you can set it to automatically open as you approach, close behind you as you leave, and much more.

Monitor the temperature in your house and automatically adjust it to your preferences straight from the SmartThings app. This is great, but I would trade all 32 of these for the ability to add family users to my account. This is really getting in the way, not having the additional users.

I feel like getting a v1 Hub, then Migrating to the v2 just to get the Legacy users access. Are you on a V1 SmartThings hub or maybe sharing your account? Just need the mobile apps updated now apparently. You can!! I did!! Additionally we did set each up to do different things. Like for us, the garage opens when my wife or I come home.

Do I need hub v2 to use these devices or can my hub v1 use these 32 devices…. The Kwikset is not a touchscreen lock. The one you have pictured is the Is that one compatible as well? I have the z-wave I see.

I looked in the compatible device list and the ZigBee version of the is listed, but there is no link to purchase. What about the nest and Chamberlain support? The nice thing is, the workaround allows me to adjust my thermostat even when the Nest cloud is down more and more often lately.

I am aware of the user developed device type and have it. Problem is, Hub V2 will not do local processing of custom device types.

ST has been talking about official support for Nest for awhile. While I appreciate the community built support, I am really looking for official support from ST. I do wonder how much of this is more of an issue with Nest than SmartThings though. I was basing my above statement off of the Nest website and what was officially supported.

It seems Nest does not have a complete list. I used vera for years and recently moved on.

The best smart blinds for 2020

Tried the staples connect the last few weeks.At lower price point I would easily buy into a relatively new product, without proven track record or much reviews. I have 10 blinds in my living room alone, current price is simply too high for only tilt control of the blinds I.

A zwave dual relay switch could be wired in parallel with the dumb switch which would then link to ST. I have mine for over one year and love them. They never need charging as they have a solar cell. They have never failed to open to the angle I want and close and close fully. I have it set to open at sunrise and close at sunset, but you can do what you want.

I plan on getting one of their switches and hoping to open it up and see if I can connect it to a mini relay, and work from there. Not sure if it can be done. Looks like they have an android app… play. We bought a new couch and the positioning of it in the room has made it difficult to reach the blinds. If you had a whole house of them you would need whatever add-on module they come up with in every room.

I found this and was wondering if there are some brilliant people that can get this connected? I think it has the possibility, but not sure how to implement it….

Motorised blinds with Harmony Hub

I found this the other day… it looks like mysmartblinds is working on a BLE hub that will integrate with ST and others. Their new Kickstarter campaign is alive. Connected Things. Unfortunately, the answer is no. They use Bluetooth technology. To early to tell, will have to wait and see what they release.

RobinWinbourne January 25,pm 6. He ended up using two dual relays to allow for full v partial closure. Looks like a great product. I will wait for confirmed ST integration though.
