Edited to add video. In the video I call these my new blinds. They are not new, they are over 10 years old! They just feel new because now they are "smart".
It did take me about 45 minutes from start to finish to have a working installation, but most of that was due to the learning curve. For my next install I believe it will be inline with the 15 minute estimate given. The instructional videos are wonderful, and made it quite simple even for a mechanical idiot/ genius like myself.
The motor is a bit noisy, but that can be overcome with the gradual tilt mode so there will be no rude awakening with the motor and instalight. It was very cool to wake up to the room filled with natural sunlight this morning. I'm looking forward to it's operation on sundown. I'm already planning several more as our budget permits.
I am still happy enough with the blinds that I have purchased two more adapter kits.
I am disappointed that I have to buy another hub (scheduled to be available mid-March) to make them work with Alexa. In November the company’s website said “MySmartBlinds will soon be compatible with you (sic) home automation hub”. This statement lead me to believe that they would work with one of my two hubs that support Bluetooth.
Battery life is good, The kits came with partial charges and 3.5 months later, only one has needed a recharge and that is the one that has the rod adapter issue which needs recalibration every time it comes off the motor.
[original review]MySmartBlinds adds convenience to blinds but without Alexa or IFTTT integration they aren’t very smart. You can use sun tracking to have your blinds adjust themselves throughout the day but if you want your blinds to close at sunset but not open at sunrise, there is currently no way to do it. Installation was easy but the installation video assumes the the blind’s controls are on the left. If your controls are on the right side, you need to reverse the instructions. For example, the instructions say to mount the battery on the right side of the motor when it actually needs to be on the left side. Not a big deal but a little confusing.
The company is promising Alexa compatibility and the ability to work with your home automation hub and if those things actually happen, I would give them 5 stars.
Easy install - dont over think it
Fairly easy app setup and control
Stopped working after 4 months (phone cannot connect to it to control it)
Virtually no online support
Setting to follow sun/sunset is useless
No Alexa integration (although they claim it is coming)
Physical (outside of app) control costs extra
Stay away. Once you install into your blinds you are kind of tied to it and will have to fully replace blinds to go another route.
My little piece of advice: There is a small plastic switch with a hook that is installed first per the instructions. I would actually save that until last, or otherwise cover the hook with a cotton ball or something similar. I did not pay close attention to it, and the metal hook caused a bit of damage to the front of the blinds on my first install.
