|This video is a review and tutorial for the Soma Smart Shades solar powered motor for Alexa and Apple Home kit. You can install it in under 10 minutes and it will work with any pulley blind including light curtains, roller blinds, roman blinds, venetian blinds and wooden blinds.
I’ve achieved this with my Amazon Echo Dot by installing the Soma Connect skill via the Alexa app and by using the additional Soma Connect hardware.
If you’d like to buy this motor and the accompanying hardware controller then please visit their shop at: www.somasmarthome.com
The Soma Connect is a simple and easy Smart Home solution, but it isn’t cheap. You are paying for the convenient 10 minute installation, the solar power aspect of it and the reliability of the product. If you’re looking for a cheaper (but more convoluted and hard wired) solution then check out my previous video for controlling roller blinds here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z66CwQ6Qpj8
This review / tutorial is in typical Paul Hibbert style so you might want to mute your Alexa and Google Home devices
