At the CES in Las Vegas from January 5 to 7, the world's most influential consumer electronics show, Coulisse launched 'Eve MotionBlinds'. Developed in collaboration with smart home specialist Eve Systems from Munich, our smart window covering motor received overwhelming attention from international tech media and influencers, in addition to the 'Best of CES' award from leading tech blogs How-To Geek and iMore, reaching an audience of millions. This appraisal paves the way for the long-awaited mass adoption of motorized window coverings by consumers worldwide.
Eve MotionBlinds was especially praised by the media for its simplicity, innovative technology and data privacy. As the first in the market, Eve MotionBlinds works with the Thread protocol, designed specifically for smart home solutions. What’s more, Eve MotionBlinds will support Matter, the upcoming smart home standard developed by Apple, Google, Amazon and Samsung, among others. Any lay person can program and control the motor in a snap from an app, and connect it to other smart home devices in the home, such as smart lighting, thermostats and cameras. The motor is wirelessly installed and rechargeable with a USB-C cable. Data is not stored in the cloud, but securely locally on the motor, safeguarding user privacy.
The positive reception at CES confirms that Eve MotionBlinds is the gamechanger the market has been waiting for for so long. Founder and owner of Coulisse Christiaan Roetgering: “Motorized window coverings have never really made it to the masses. Solutions were complex, expensive and difficult to integrate into smart home systems. Eve MotionBlinds is changing all that. The fact that the consumer tech world is now embracing Eve MotionBlinds so widely confirms that the solution is truly groundbreaking. It paves the way to reach a wide audience with smart window coverings as the basis for a smart home, and thus for more comfort, energy savings and safety in the home.”
Jerome Gackel, CEO of Eve Systems on the success of Eve MotionBlinds: "Smart home is going to take off in an unparalleled way in the coming years. Matter will play a pioneering role in this, as it finally delivers full interoperability of smart home devices. They can be connected universally, regardless of the smart home system. Thanks to Thread, Eve MotionBlinds can work with Matter. Once Matter is being rolled out, the motor will not only support Apple HomeKit, but also Alexa, Google, SmartThings, and others.”
The first Eve MotionBlinds motor for roller blinds is available now. Eve MotionBlinds motors for curtains, Venetian blinds and cellular shades will follow later this year. Window coverings with Eve MotionBlinds are available to consumers from a growing network of window covering shops worldwide, as listed on the store locator on website MotionBlinds.com. Eve MotionBlinds motors are part of MotionBlinds, the smart technology for window coverings developed by Coulisse.
