Smartblinds cannot only be connected and operated with Apple. You can also use Google's smart home platform to turn your smart roller blind into a smart home blind. This way, you can integrate your Smartblinds with your Google Home and control all your smart devices, including your Google Home blinds, through one app. We explain the advantages of Google Home in combination with Smartblinds' smart roller blinds.
Smartblinds' smart window blinds are electrically operated. This means that you can operate your blinds remotely, for instance with your smartphone. This means you no longer have to bother with that time-consuming tugging on your roller blind cord. You can simply move your blind from your couch. Our window coverings contain a smart motor. With normal use you only need to charge this motor once or twice a year. This can be done with a USB-C cable. Because the motor has a rechargeable battery, your Google home blind does not need a constant supply of power from a power point. But how do you change your smart blind into a Google Home blind?
By adding Smartblinds to your Google Home, you can control your smart blinds even smarter. Through Google Home you can give voice commands to your blinds by interacting with the smart assistant ''Google Assistant''. It is also possible to add your smart Google curtains to your smart home scenes via the Google Home App. This way, your smart curtains work together with other smart devices in your home. For example, set your blinds to open automatically at 7.30 in the morning, while your smart lights in your room slowly turn on! This way you can wake up in peace!
