  • Price in title

  • Anyone tried these on heavy curtains?

    • Less than 2m by 2m no problem. 2.5m by 2.5m they can struggle. This is a rough guide as the type and material of the blinds will impact the performance.

    • If it's the same thing as kogan one - yes, capable, but very loud.

  • I’ve been wanting to motorise my curtains to open up as my alarm goes off. The site says homekit compatible via shortcuts. Does this mean the blinds cannot be used in homekit automations and scenes?

    • Hello,

      These use the Tuya app. They are not Homekit enabled.

      If you are looking for a Homekit version you can find them in our store under the Soma Smart Shades and the Soma Connect.

    I’ve been keen on something like this too. Anyone got any experience for these on blinds with the little beads?

    • The motor comes with three different cog types so it fits 99% of blinds.

      •  

        Great. I have four narrow blinds so will need four. Expensive. What about the motor’s battery. Is it rechargeable? Thanks.

        • This device is not battery operated. We do have another blind motor that has a battery. Search on the site Oz Smart Blinds and it will appear

    • I've purchased that exact one from Oz Smart Things and it works great. It is the exact same hardware controlled by the same app (TuyaSmart) as the aliexpress unit that costs $65 though - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001869648075.html

      The AC adapter (from both units) is a bit disappointing though. Bright green led that is always on and the pin that goes into the motor feels like it should be able to go further in as it's a bit loose but none of the metal is exposed and it's never fallen out so i guess it's fine.

  • Any discount on the battery ones

  • I bought this one from https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001045079168.html Ali Express about 1 year ago, looks similar so Ill give you my experience. On blinds with bead chain, dimensions 2.5m x 3.0m, it is very jumpy and noisy when opening and closing, it gets the job done and I like them but it is not a smooth open and close. Connection has never dropped out and I use it with alexa with no issues.

    • Same experience - horribly noisy even on our smaller 1.2m x 3m blind, and practically unusable on the larger 2.5m x 2.5m blind. Ripped them both off the wall after a week. Would definitely not recommend.

    This is the same model with Kogan Smart Blind which rebranded Zemismart that copied other smart blind as well,So it would be cheaper if you buy Zemismart directly.

    The quality is not that good. Height Alignment is not good enough. You might need to re-balance the max/min height per month or so.

    FYI, I bought Kogan version and won’t buy it again.

      Similar model but we have developed this with the manufacturer for the Australian Market. Our model is approved and carries the RCM mark of approval, along with may other changes the cover has also been changed to be UV stabilised so they do not turn yellow like the other models. Our devices are dispatched within 24hrs from our warehouse in Sydney using Australia post.

      Yes, there are similar units on the internet for less but they are not from an Australian company that has developed it for the country in which we are selling it and holds an Australian warranty.

  • Can these be flashed with tasmota?

  • unless you have a power outlet by the window it's best to get the battery powered one.

    I assume otherwise it's the same?

  • I would want a unit which can handle both open/close and angle adjustment.

  • Hey OP,

    Have you got one SmartThings compatible?? Zigbee or Z-Wave?

    I like the ones with solar panels, but you can't have everything I guess.

    • We have integrated the Soma Smart Shades + Connect with Home Assistant, FIBARO and Vera as it can accept HTTP Commands. Despite the name our experience with SmartThings is limited. We try to stay away from cloud-based controllers.

  • I’ve got one of the battery powered ones with a remote. I prefer smart devices that aren’t reliant on an internet connection to work.
    Used a BroadLink pro remote to connect it to my Home Assistant. Can be a bit noisy but works great. I’ve got it in the cat bedroom so that it can help regulate the temperature (opening when cold to let sun in, closing if it’s too cold or too hot and sunny). Considering getting another for the lounge room curtain but I think the price may have increased since I bought it and the remote one seems to never be on sale.

  • Would this work with vertical blinds with 2 vertical strings (up and down) that are 3*5m?
