When I originally bought the device, it worked perfectly, but after about 30 days I realized that it didn't charge. I emailed SOMA and they replied promptly, took my device back for repair and sent me a replacement device. all within a couple of days. Excellent service!
In my opinion this is one of the best shade automation devices out there and with the latest update, the speed and smoothness of the shades have been taken to a whole new level. Strongly recommended!
We purchased a single Soma Smart Shades 2 and Connect to see how it would work before purchasing others to be used with other shades in our home. After one month, I can say that we will purchase more Smart Shades motors. The ability to turn regular shades in smart shades is far more economic than buying smart shades outright. I also like the "morning mode" which raises the blinds slowly enough to be barely audible. And the speed adjustment in general - the blinds raise quickly if you need or slowly when you want to cut down on the noise. And I really like the included solar panel which makes it possible to charge this device more sustainably. I have two feature request/improvements that I'd like to see: 1. The ability to control the blinds at the device (they can only be raised via the app or, if you purchase the Connect, your voice controlled Google/Amazon/Apple device). I think this is a pretty big oversight - not disqualifying, but I do think it's a significant oversight as I don't like be entirely dependent upon having a phone or voice control device at home to raise or lower the blinds. 2. A few other options for hanging or mounting the solar panel. Affixing it to the window makes it tricky to raise and lower the window and blinds as the cable gets in the way. Perhaps a way to hang from the window sill so it can be between the window and blinds? Beyond those things, I'm a big fan of of the Soma 2 and Connect combo. We love being able to use our shades as our alarm clock and the voice control is great.
Stronger and faster!
Fast delivery easy to install and setup works with homekit. It would be better if smart shades app used same terminology as homekit. Smart shades refers to % closed where home app and Eve app refers to % open which appear as different values
Nice sollution for controlling existing blinds but at £99 each a bit too expenive to kit out the rest of my house.
