“While automated window shades have been around for some time, existing solutions almost always involve replacing the entire set-up and that is expensive. We wanted to create something simpler, something which everyone can buy, install at the fraction of the cost. We are really proud that we have gained the trust of home automation enthusiasts. Motorized shades are now available for everyone"
