You may be using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant as your home automation hub or system. But how do you integrate MySmartBlinds with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant for your home automation system?
Buy the Smart Bridge.
With a Smart Bridge, you can control your blinds outside of bluetooth distance, and you can integrate MySmartBlinds into Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
The Smart Bridge lets you control your mobile phone from anywhere. You can use voice control with your blinds.
What if you want to move your blinds when you’re out of home? You can!
When you’re away from home, you can send a command from the MySmartBlinds app (which is installed on your phone), which sends the command over the internet connection to your Smart Bridge. Your Smart Bridge receives the command and will send a Bluetooth command to your MySmartBlinds device i.e. Move your blinds.
MySmartBlinds has the Automation Kit available (as a separate purchase) which includes a motor box, battery pack, solar panel, manual switch road adapters for all tilt rod shapes, cable clips to manage cords, and rubber tubing ends for tilt rod.
The Automation Kit lets you control the tilting of your horizontal blinds on a pre-set schedule. Through the Automation Kit, you can also control your blinds on demand from your phone.
The MySmartBlinds Automation Kit is compatible with brands including: Hunter Douglas, Home Decorators Collection, Norman, Levolor, Springs, allen + roth, Smith & Noble, Budget Blinds, Bali, A Better Blind, Blinds.com, Achim, Kohl’s, justblinds, MyBlinds, Factory Direct, Chicology, Hampton Bay, Maxxmar, Blindster.com, Lafayette, JCPenney, Select Blinds, Kellie Clements, Blindsgalore, Graber, Comfortex, and more.
The Automation Kit can automate all major brands of horizontal 2-3 inch blinds.
However, the Automation Kit is not compatible with vertical blinds, cordless lift blinds, roller shades, or shutters.
The Automation Kit works with only one blind. i.e. You will need one Automation Kit for each blind you would like to automate.
Your blinds can track the sunrise and sunset through sun tracking.
Enable sun tracking on your schedule. Your room schedule will track and try continuing to remain at that relationship to the sunrise and sunset throughout the season.
Simple reason is you can turn on sun tracking to maintain the same light levels you prefer even as times and seasons change.
A simple example is let’s say your schedule is set to 9am while sun tracking is enabled. Sunrise is going to be at 8am in summer. In this case, you have set your blinds to open one hour after sunrise.
When in winter the sunrise comes at 9am, your blinds will open at 10am. This keeps the light levels in your room (or house) consistent throughout.
