How does it work?
Introducing the Smart Bridge...
This little box acts just like a handheld remote, telling the blinds to go up or down..
However, because it’s smart… it also connects to your home’s Wi-Fi so that it can communicate with an App on your phone or tablet.
One of these “Smart Bridges” can control up to 20 blinds.
The brains of your smart blinds

The Connector App is a free download from the Apple App or Google Play stores and is super simple to install on your phone or tablet.
Once downloaded, you’re ready to unlock the full potential of your motorised blinds, curtains or outdoor awnings.
The App allows you to organise all your automated products by room, making them easy control from anywhere without thumbling about with a remote for each room.
Another great Connector feature is the ability to create scenes such as ‘Good Morning’ or ‘Sleep’, which seamlessly pair your chosen ambience with your daily routine.
