Alexa, You Can Now Open MySmartBlinds

Tech startup asks for Kickstarter support as it reaches for the cloud

PROVO, Utah, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Home automation company MySmartBlinds, who released their smartphone-controlled, solar-powered window blinds in 2016, have set their sights high and are headed for the cloud.

The MySmartBlinds hub, which launched on Kickstarter on November 1, will give new and existing MySmartBlinds users access to their window coverings through their Amazon Echo. This means in addition to energy savings, sun-tracking, in-app scheduling, and solar charging, MySmartBlinds users will now be able to enjoy voice control and access their blinds when they are away from home. Pretty smart.

"Bringing Bluetooth control to the cloud will give us access to so many home automation systems in 2018," said MySmartBlinds CEO and Founder Emily Brimhall. MySmartBlinds will listen to Alexa after the hub is delivered to Kickstarter backers, and throughout the year, the hub will allow MySmartBlinds to connect with Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, Apple HomeKit, and more.

The MySmartBlinds hub launched on Kickstarter on November 1.
