Does the job perfectly. Easy to install, and I’m really loving the free solar panel that comes with the the product. The battery life on the soma mottor is reasonable. The only downside is you can’t set the shades to a certain level on Amazon Alexa, just Siri.
Eitherway, I give this product 4.5/5
One happy customer here :)
It’s almost what you are hoping for, but not quite. First of all, and most importantly - it’s to slow. To go from closed to open on a 120cm window will take about a minute. And the fact that it makes a lot of noise as it goes makes the whole experience a lot less smooth than I hoped. Another sad thing is that there is no way to override it manually.
Installing it was easy though.
