Plum was 2+ years late with the lightpad...

And another year+ after that and they STILL don't have a public API :roll:

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

I've been writing them repeatedly with no response.
Likely just more vaporware.

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

Did anyone receive this? Does it work with the pull cord Venetian blinds as originally mentioned? Any alternatives? Cheers

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

I don't know much about this market, but if there's a radio controlled system for blinds that ISN'T Indigo compatible, the Bond Smart Ceiling Fan Controller promises to be able to control them in the future--and they've already come through with several of their promised expansions of ability. An open API is on their list, and I believe HomeKit compatibility is next. On the device side, after fans they're going for AC units, and then I think blinds.

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

Is there any halfway-decent solution to automate tilt? I hardly ever retract my blinds but having scenes tilt open/close would be awesome.

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

Anyone know if it’s possible to get a refund from a campaign...in particular Movez?
Complete scam as far I’m concerned. They’ve done nothing but lie about it’s progress.

Delay, Delay and Delay
And the other aspect, I hadn't realised is the battery life. 6 weeks before batteries need replacing/charging - that is not particularly practical in my mind.
(solar panels aside - also not very practical!)

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

Anyone have any idea what is happening with the Movez Zwave blinds, they seem to have disappeared from Indiegogo and no updates on their site since April. Is it a dead duck?

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

A week or so ago, and invitation was sent to Indiegogo “volunteers” to apply as beta testers. Submitted an application pointing out that I could test the device upside down here in the Southern Hemisphere and have heard no more.....

This is pretty hopeless. In cleaning out the shed the other day, I cam across a couple of brand new auto window winders. Have put them aside with a cunning plan to try and emulate the Movez device when (and if) I get the time :-)

Re: Aftermarket device for controlling blinds

So I assume there’s no recourse for those of us who’ve paid for the thing?
