“Lights, door locks, thermostats and garage doors are smart, shouldn’t our window blinds be smart too? We wanted to design an affordable and simple product that would extend the home automation ecosystem.
Arlington, Texas (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
Z-wave Alliance contest winner and Texas-based HAB Home Intelligence will launch a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.com to bring iBlinds, a DIY home automation kit, to the market. The product will allow customers to make their existing window blinds “smart” and to control multiple devices with a touch of one button on a phone, tablet, PC or Z-wave remote.
iBlinds is an easy-to-install solution for homeowners looking to automate and control the blinds already in their home. No need to purchase any special tools, order a new set of blinds or even call a contractor. The intelligent blind motor will work with any Z-wave controller and app to give homeowners control over their blinds. Z-wave integration will also enable iBlinds to interact and communicate with other smart home devices on the network, which can be used to create scheduled times to open and close. Remotely control a single blind or a group of them from anywhere in the house or in the world.
The Kit includes an intelligent blind motor to close or tilt the blinds, special adapters for all tilt rod sizes and a rechargeable battery that can be charged using a USB adapter or a solar panel.
A user can install the intelligent motor inside the blind rail in about 10 minutes, without the need for any tools, messy remodeling or professional programming.
iBlinds uses the Z-wave wireless technology to securely integrate with your home automation network. There are nearly a 1000 different Z-wave products that all work together so you can choose the products that are right for your home and control them all with a single app.
The iBlinds kit is made for homeowners and landlords who would like to save time and money on energy bills and to have an automated solution which makes their lives more comfortable and secure. It is also very helpful for seniors and people with a limited mobility.
The Kickstarter project will run until March 31, 2016 by visiting the project’s page at http://www.kickstarter.com, during which time early-adopters have an opportunity to pre-order the kit, starting at $60 with an estimated delivery date scheduled for December of 2016.
