Meet RISE - the coolest new kid in home automation

RISE is a device that turns your regular window shades into automated smart shades and is easy to set up and operate via your smartphone - it's completely wireless, fully automatic and remembers your weekly routines to make your life convenient, bright and easy.

Roller blinds are great, but we all know that having to constantly fiddle with them during the day is annoying and time consuming. We're here to change that with RISE - a device that turns regular window blinds into automated smart blinds that you can control with your smartphone.


RISE is super easy to install and you can control all the window shades in your house or office all at once or one room at a time.

There's also an option to set automation schedules based on your own preferences or the local sunrise/sunset times. Automations save time and also increase security in your home by keeping valuables out of sight.

No need to worry about battery life, either - RISE is built using high quality Lithium batteries with a built in solar charger. During daytime the unit charges the batteries using sunlight - once charged, it can make 50 full movements of the blinds.

RISE is currently compatible with iOS and Android and will be available soon through a crowdfunding campaign.
