For the premiere episode of How Did I Do, I’m doing a MySmartBlinds diy Home Automation Kit Review!***
If you're like me and you want to use your smartphone or echo to automate things in your home, this is the video for you.
For almost a year I've been looking for a diy home automation solution to control my vertical blinds. I was at Blinds To Go recently and they had automated blinds that cost around $270 for the motor alone. And they don't do anything but open and close your blinds. No scheduled blinds. No "Alexa" commands.
Just open and close. That's it.
From my research there is only product that does all of that and that's MySmartBlinds. MySmartBlinds Automation Kit allows you to transform those new 2-2 ½ inch horizontal blinds you bought from Home Depot or Lowes into automated blinds.
All that hype sounds well and good but can an ordinary person like myself install the MySmartBlinds Home Automation Kit into 2 inch blinds and get them to work?With the help of a number of videos, like Tech with Brett's excellent video series done almost a year ago, I will see if I can do it. How did I do? Take a look?
