Awesome Blinds!

I really love my new SOMA blinds. They were simple to hook up and connected with Alexa easily. I had a slight issue with connecting during a period in which their server was down, but their customer service was wonderfully responsive and reassuring. I have upgrading about 75% of my current blinds to SOMA blinds and will complete the process for my entire house soon.

Smart Shades 2 and Connect

One of the best home automation investments. Easy to install, worked as documented. My shades now operate on a schedule and can be operated via voice command to my Google mini. Highly recommend!

Seamless

Seamless to install and works a treat. Hooks up to smartthings and Alexa in a breeze. Shame need to buy the connect separately to actually integrate it into a smart home which all together an expensive option but does what it says on the tin. Looking forward to what else the team can design to help with home automation.
