When I first heard of HomeKit and its ability to make my home smart and part of the Apple eco-system.

So far I’ve implemented smart-lighting all around the house with the exception of the restrooms and exhaust fans.

I mentioned in the post yesterday how Caséta Wireless can enable your currently mounted ceiling fans into becoming smart fans controllable via your smartphone, as well as automated by HomeKit when the temperature rises in summers.

And now we have these automatic shades to look forward to, that can wake you up in the morning and get your home ready without you having to go to each window and opening the shades.

The Ikea shades will be HomeKit compatible and be available to the US market in the summer (perfect timing!)

Check out the sources below to learn more about them.
