Great devices but some units don't seem to extend to the configured bottom point each time.
App is good but only works via Bluetooth, so making adjustments when away from home is not possible (i.e. When on holiday and clocks go back/forwards.
Generally good but some niggles. I sent a detailed email but have had no reply from Soma, customer service/communications seems very automated and impersonal
These are value, Usually motors cost $400 and up per single device. Was pretty easy to install, comes with adhesive tape strips so you don't need any screws. Mobile app was easy to learn.
Wow, is this product great. I love the ability to program the opening and closing of my blinds. In addition to making it easier to open and close them when I'm home, it's a great security feature to look like someone's home. I even had a neighbor call me and ask why I was home earlier than expected because they saw my blinds open during the day. I wasn't home yet!
Was easy enough to install. I recommend completely reading the instructions once before beginning. They seem to work well so far. I was worried because some of the reviews talk about them being noisy. They were not as loud as I expected. We bought these to open our blinds in the mornings so we can wake up easier, and I don't think the noise will be too disturbing
