Happy with my purchase

Finally found an electric blind system that just works, no hassle and easy to install/setup. Could be quieter, but honestly that's a minor issue (all the others I tried were louder anyway!). Would recommend and will be buying more units for other blinds in the house.

Home blind review

Works well and easy to install. A very good product.

Camilo Amado
Works exactly as described

Very easy to install. Solar panel works great and I hace tinted windows. The motor is not silent, but good enough and is only a few seconds a day anyhow. Homekit compatibility works perfect.

HomeKit your Blinds!

The Tilt2 is an awesome way to add HomeKit control to your existing blinds. Although not “Apple” certified yet they control does pair nicely with HomeKit. The ability to set scenes to have you blinds open in different configurations is nice. We have them shut automatically at 11pm and open at sunrise to a 60% setting. Around 3pm when the sun is beating down we have them close to around 80%. Integrating with Siri works well too. The only real downside is the size of the motor but after a while it blended in and most guest at our home don’t even recognize that it’s there. We will be adding the Tilt2 to all of our home blinds!
