 What if my window doesn't get light?

For windows outside of the path of sunlight, we've got you covered. Our micro-USB charging cord plugs right into the MySmartBlinds battery for periodic charging (approximately every 6 months, depending on the size and usage of the blinds).

Already have blinds?

Give them an upgrade with our Automation Kit, funded on Kickstarter (under Tilt My Blinds) in 2014! The Kit is compatible with all major brands of 2-2.5" horizontal blinds.

About us

Our CEO and Founder, Emily Brimhall, came up with the idea behind MySmartBlinds while struggling to install blinds in her home. She believed that homeowners should be able to get light control, privacy, and security, without a toolbox and without hiring a handyman.

MySmartBlinds were born on the idea that automated window coverings can be simple. We saw a gap in the market for products that were as smart as their users. We don't think homeowners should have to fuss with installing window coverings or setting up automated products. They should be able to maintain environmental factors of their home like security, temperature, privacy, and light, all in one convenient place. We want to make products that are simple to install, simple to use, and simply take care of everyday tasks, so people can focus on the things in their lives that matter most.

Creating such simple products takes lots of hard work. Our team of bright-minded app developers, mechanical engineers, manufacturing engineers, electrical engineers, and all the people in between have helped to create electro-mechanical products that are attainable for everyone. The blinds are smart because of the brain power behind them. By creating such a simple product, we have made it possible for everyone to be a smart homeowner.

We are constantly working on new products - new styles of window coverings, new ways to control the light in your house, and new opportunities to let sunlight power your smart home. We want to bring you every trend in smart window coverings by challenging, changing, innovating, and breaking the mold of outdated ideas. We strive to improve your home's ease and comfort.

Since our mission is to create truly smart products, our work never stops. And neither does our technology. With the MySmartBlinds motor, you can expect updates in light, privacy, and security monitoring; accessibility; and control. We built our MySmartBlinds motor knowing that we would update and grow, so we built it smart. That means, if you buy a MySmartBlinds blind with a motor, or you automate your existing blinds with our Automation Kit, you won't need to repurchase in order to reap the benefits of each update.

We are simple. We are solar. We are smart.

Risks and challenges

Every Kickstarter endeavor has its risks and challenges - but we know how to kick them to the curb!

Production on the MySmartBlinds hub has already started. We’ve already built the molds and machinery for our initial launch, and a portion of the money we raise here will go toward funding additional production parts, manufacturing costs, and meeting product demands.

A challenge we may bump into along the way could be working through our first 100 beta testers. It's not easy to estimate any problems that may arise during that time. We will have to delay subsequent delivery times if we see any problems with the first test group. However, we are confident in our over-the-air update capabilities to fix any problems we may run into. We have given ourselves two months for these fixes. We expect to hit all of our delivery deadlines for the launch of the MySmartBlinds hub.
