If opening and closing your blinds is a chore for you or a little tricky, a new gadget called DaVi has been created by Mario Masitti that might be the perfect addition to your home automation system.
DaVi has been designed to allow you to control the opening and closing of your blinds directly from your smartphone. Enabling you to easily control those hard to reach blinds or simply open them whilst lying in bed or on the couch.
The DaVi project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production and more can be learnt from the video below.
“We love our smart-home devices – controlling our thermostat and light bulbs from our smartphones are just two examples that have made our lives better. Unfortunately, our window blinds do not share the same story. Automated blinds are typically expensive, need custom installation, and require you to replace your current blinds. There has never been an option to use the blinds you already own – until now.
Meet DaVi – a device that simply slides into your blinds and lets you tilt them with your phone. DaVi is an all-in-one unit that installs without tools, in less than 5 minutes, and works with every 2” blind available today. DaVi is solar powered and recharges its lithium battery automatically. Because DaVi’s installation is so simple, it is perfect for apartments and condos, as well as houses.”
DaVi’s features include :
• Universal fit for every two inch horizontal blind.
• A quiet, 360* motor that allows for smooth operation.
• A large lithium battery to ensure DaVi works in all scenarios.
• A solar panel that recharges DaVi.
• Power Wand Cord Retains Manual Operation & Provides Non-Solar Charging
• Bluetooth Connectivity for nearby operation.
• Zigbee Connectivity for long-distance operation and synchronicity with your other smart home products.
• Multitude of sensors that help make your home more energy efficient.
