The motorized window blinds that currently available in the market are great to have.  They provide ease of blinds adjustment, which is especially useful to have when there are multiple blinds.  They also provide privacy as well as energy savings.  The problem is, until now, the high price tag associated with this convenient luxury has been cost prohibitive for many.

With the EZ Wand, you can now enjoy all the benefits of having motorized window blinds, at a fraction of the costs. 

Never before has it been easier to affordably make your office or home window blinds into luxurious remote-controlled motorized blinds.  Opening and closing blinds will never have to be a chore again!

Installation of the EZ Wand does not require any special tools or the need to hire someone to come into your home to install. Everything you need is in the Box!

Using Patent Pending technology and ingenuity, the EZ Wand can conveniently tilt open or close your existing blinds, which use a wand/rod, at the touch of a button. 

The EZ Wand is the least expensive and fastest way to turn existing blinds into remote control blinds – All you have to do is take your current wand off and replace it with the EZ Wand. No disassembling. No wiring. No need to pay for installers.

Simple. Affordable. Easy.

The EZ Wand – made for your Convenience.

 .

Perfect for the Home or Office.

The EZWand is perfect for home and office settings where you want the convenience of raising or lowering your blinds one at a time or all at once.  This is particularly useful when you have a lot of windows in your home or office.  

Home Blinds

Blinds are great to have in your home.  However, the truth is that most people typically leave their blinds in the same position day and night.  The most common reasons people leave their blinds alone are because of time and convenience. This is completely understandable.  With manual blinds you may have to spend precious minutes throughout the day to continuously adjust your blinds  - especially if you have multiple blinds.  Also, there are blinds that may not be in easy to reach locations.  What ends up happening is the use of the windows, and often privacy, are sacrificed.

The EZ Wand can provide you with more relaxing moments at home.  Imagine, on those days when you want to stay in bed a while longer, all you have to do is reach for the EZ Remote to adjust your blinds.  You can keep the sunlight at bay or comfortably ease yourself into getting your day started by adding a little bit of light at a time.

Have we also mentioned that the EZWand is a cost effective and easy way to help save on your energy bills?  By adjusting your blinds, you can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.  However,  because of the inconvenience of having to get up and adjust one and often many blinds, a majority of people who have blinds don't utilize them properly.  With the EZ Wand, one remote an adjust up to 8 window blinds at a time with just a press of a button.

Last, the EZWand makes it easier and safer for kids, seniors, and disabled individuals to adjust window blinds.  Window blinds are great to have, but they many not always be in the easiest to reach locations. The convenience of having remote control window blinds should be an experience all can enjoy.

Office Blinds

If you have ever had the experience of working in an office with a view, you likely also know the challenge of being distracted by the natural occurrence of the world turning around the sun, shining brightly through your window, and having it glare off your computer screen or directly into your eyes.

When using the EZWand in an office setting, you an avoid having to adjust yourself and/or your monitor to get rid of annoying glares.  With a touch of a button you can experience greater productivity and less distractions at work.

What can you expect to pay for other alternative customized motorized blinds?

For motorized blinds currently on the market, the average you could be looking to spend would be between $150 and $600 per blind, depending on quality, size, style, manufacturer, etc.  On average the cost goes up or down by about 10% for every foot you add or subtract to the width and height.  Once you purchase the blinds you would need them installed.  Having motorized blinds installed by a professional can cost $20-$60 each with a minimum job charge, and with taller windows an extra ladder charge is typical. 

You can also chose to have your blinds hardwired into your electrical system, which would negate the need for batteries.  Expect to pay an additional $200-$300 per motorized unit you want hardwired.

Furthermore, consider the expense of having customized window blinds would then be literally attached with the window frame in which it was placed.  If you were to install custom motorized blinds into your home, apartment or office, they would only useful in that location.  If you were to move locations, you may have to incur the motorized blinds costs again. But with EzWand if renting or own your home or office no problem, you can take EzWand with you when you move (No investment left behind).

 Now in order to bring the EzWand to life, we need your support. Your pledge to EzWand is needed but as importantly needs interest. So kindly please take a moment and click on

.... lets put it out there and make EzWand a familiar appliance to everyone.

Throughout the last two years of engineering, developing and testing EzWand I have exhausted all my resources and your generous backing and funding will assist with the manufacturing and production run, as well as the distribution. Also, it will allow us to do R&D for the next generation of EzRemote control unit to work with EzWand. This will allow the blinds to open and close on selected times throughout the day.

Furthermore we are trying to make EzWand WIFI compatible. The WIFI technology will allow you to remotely control the blind from anywhere in the world.

More significantly your generous backing will allow for a new product to come to your home as well as being introduced in the market place.

Thank you for your viewing and your generous support, we hope that you will enjoy the luxury of owning EzWand in your home or office.

Base Package Includes; One Remote, One Wand, 3 Blind Headrails Adapters for Different Brands and 2 Wand Tips for Different Blinds

Risks and challenges

We have taken many products to market before, and know there are a myriad of obstacles to overcome. To name a few, there are risks associated with certification, manufacturing, and unforeseen changes in component and production lead times and availability.

We have spent time in China trying to mitigate these risks, and are cooperating with several high-quality suppliers.

Still—unforeseen events happen and we commit to being transparent about the challenges we are facing.

We are capable of delivering the first 2000 wands in Dec 2014 - Jan 2015 based on material availability, however any amount beyond this will be delivered within 6 to 8 weeks after the Kickstarter Campaign has ended.
