Apple HomeKit Control for Your Automated Shades

What if you didn’t even need to add one more app to control the atmosphere of your home?

What is Apple HomeKit?

The Apple HomeKit app is your key to smart home integration of all digital devices. This includes devices, such as security systems, doorbells, thermostats, lighting…and, yes…automated shades. You can easily–and I’m talking easily–add accessories to your HomeKit with a single scan. (Scroll down to see how we can help you with this!)


The Benefits of Motorized Shades…

An automated home is a happy home. Why? Because life just becomes a lot less complicated. The light will always be comfortable. The shades will close when the thermostat rises to a certain temperature. Your children’s room darkening shades will close even before they step foot in their rooms, for nap time or nighttime. And speaking of good sleep…

On the weekend? You’ll be able to sleep a little longer because your shades won’t open to fill the room with sunshine like they do Monday through Friday. And, if you rush out the door on your way to the airport, your vacation won’t be ruined, thinking about your AC running around the clock. Apple HomeKit lets you take care of it.


Get Started in Just a Few Easy Steps.

Locate the App. Once you click, you’ll get the “Welcome Home” screen. Tap on the “Get Started” button. And, you’re Home! From there, you’ll be able to start building your smart home.
