Find out if your blind has a beaded chain or a plain cord. In the case of a beaded chain, find out how many beads/balls there are per inch (2.5 cm). Below measurements are approximate, choose the one that suits the best. When in doubt, contact our support, we are happy to assist.
Beaded chain - standard beads
Most of the blinds with a beaded chain have balls which diameter is approx. 3/16 in / 4.5 mm. This means there are around 4 balls per 1 in / 2.5 cm.
There is also a variation which has extra spacing between the balls. The 3rd ball starts around 1 in / 2.5 cm.
Beaded chain - large beads
Ball diameter is approx. 1/4 in / 6.3 mm. This means that there are around 2.5 balls and 2 spacings per 1 in / 2.5 cm.
Beaded chain - small beads
Ball diameter is approx. 1/8 in / 3.2 mm. This means that there are around 6 balls per 1 in / 2.5 cm.
Endless loop cord
Plain cord without beads.
Buy SOMA Connect to use SOMA Smart Shades 2 with Apple HomeKit, Google Home / Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT, Home Assistant or local HTTP API for DIY integrations. One SOMA Connect supports an unlimited number of SOMA Smart Shades, SOMA Smart Shades 2 and SOMA Tilt devices.
I’ve been a customer using these devices for several years now and have 15 Soma v2 integrated into my Apple Home ecosystem via the Connect.
The software has come on tremendously from the early days and I would describe the system as rock solid. I have had occasional issues with a unit, but the support from Soma is excellent and if an issue does arise they arrange DHL pickup and return and the unit is repaired and back within a few days. Would fully recommend this system whether integrating fully with Apple/Google/Alexa or just running a few units via the app/ scheduled routines.
SOMA Smart Shades 2
This was by far the best product for automating my blinds, and having them controlled through Home Assistant.
Customer service, the product, everything is great. Now i dont wake up by alarms, i schedule the shades to open in the morning and when they do, i wake up. It's a good feeling
I bought the blind motor and the sensor and they work great with Apple homekit. I would recommend this product highly to any one with similar with a chain pull blind.
