HAB Home Intelligence has turned to Kickstarter to bring a DIY home automation kit to the market
August 3, 2015, Arlington, Texas - HAB Home Intelligence will allow customers to make their new or existing window blinds “smart” and to control multiple devices with a touch of one button on a phone, tablet, PC or Z-Wave remote.
In a recent report on the connected home, BI Intelligence forecasted that the industry will grow at a compound annual rate of 67% over the next five years. HAB Home Intellignece, one of the pioneers of the Internet of Things industry, has launched a campaign on Kickstarter.com to raise $30,000.

The gizmo will let you automate any two inch horizontal blinds in your house or office: set up a schedule to open and close, adjust them to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, remotely control a single blind, or a group of them, from anywhere in the house or in the world.
The kit includes an intelligent blind motor to close or tilt the blinds, special adapters for all tilt rod sizes and a rechargeable battery that can be charged using a USB adapter or a solar panel.
iBlinds uses the Z-Wave wireless technology to securely integrate with your home automation network. There are nearly a 1000 differnet Z-Wave products that all work together so you can choose the products that are right for your home and control them with all with a single app. Z-Wave creates a mesh network so every gadget extends and strengthens the range of communication, this bridges the gap between smart appliances located too far apart.
A user can install the intelligent motor inside the blind rail in about 10 minutes, without the need for any tools, messy remodelling or professional programming.
“Lights, door locks, thermostats and garage doors are smart, shouldn’t our window blinds be smart too. We wanted to design an affordable and simple product that would extend the home automation ecosystem. iBlinds connect with your smart home system allowing you to control all of your home automation products from a single app,” said Eric Barnett, the creator of iBlinds.
The iBlinds kit is made for homeowners and landlords who would like to save time and money on energy bills and to have an automated solution which makes their lives more comfortable and secure. It is also very helpful for seniors and people with a limited mobility.
The Kickstarter project will run till August 19, 2015, during which time early-adopters have an opportunity to pre-order the kit, starting at $59 with a delivery date scheduled for December of 2015.
