A Smart & Affordable Solution For Everyone

Everything in your home is becoming smart and automated – all except your window shades, but why is that? That’s because motorized shades today are extremely expensive, retailing for upwards of $1,500 per window. Don’t believe me? Take a look here at Lutron’s pricing by size.

And worse yet, you’re not able to motorize any shades already installed in your home or building – there are no retrofit solutions.

That’s why we invented the RYSE SmartShade, a simple-to-install DIY device to automate any window shade, and priced affordably for the masses for only $149!

Award Winning & Innovative Technology

Our goal was to create the most advanced yet simple and affordable device to easily motorize your existing blinds & shades, so more of us could experience the magic of smart shades. RYSE SmartShade is uniquely positioned to win in a market that is currently occupied by slow-moving, behemoth window shade companies, whose motorized solutions are too expensive for even the largest commercial buildings, let alone everyday homeowners.

Our Vision

Product Roadmap: SmartShades Is Just The Beginning

Our vision is to OWN the “Smart Shade” space. We want RYSE to be synonymous with smart shade — just like what Nest is to the thermostat, Ring is to the doorbell, or Dyson is to the vacuum, we want consumers to think of RYSE when they think of smart shades! RYSE will be developing multiple products in the coming years to dominate the smart window covering category.

SmartDrapes

Expected Launch: Q4-2021
RYSE SmartDrapes will motorize any curtain or drape that runs on a rail or rod. Drapes are most popular in hotels and making a comeback in luxury multi-family apartments.

SmartBlind

Expected Launch: 2022
RYSE SmartBlinds will tilt and lift Venetian blinds, horizontal blinds, or mini-blinds that have a wand or draw-strings. Blinds are the most common window covering in residential homes.

Cordless

Expected Launch: 2022
Cordless blinds and shades was the most popular lift control in 2019 where users can lift or pull-down to open-and-close. This control system will experience large growth in off-the-shelf blinds,and the residential space, due to child safety.

Companies Are Betting Billions On The Connected World

Updates

  • Exciting Updates On SmartShade Production!

    Hello again!

    For the past few weeks, we’ve been sharing quick but frequent updates on how the production of SmartShade is going over on our Kickstarter campaign.

    Today, I wanted to give you a recap of these exciting updates because we are now only days away from beginning the delivery of the early Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and website preorders!

    Right near the tail-end of August, the RYSE BatteryPacks had completed production, left our manufacturer’s factory, and made their way to our overseas shipper to be prepared to leave China.

  • SmartShade Pre-Order Discount Goes Up in 5 Days

    Hello again!

    I just wanted to give you a head’s up that the pre-order discount of 20% for our upcoming RYSE SmartShade product is going up on September 1st.

    In just 5 days, the pre-order discount will be only 10% as we get closer and closer to delivery day.

    This is truly the best time to place bulk orders as we currently do not have any plans to discount our product this heavily again.

    So if you haven’t yet but would like to place a pre-order yourself at a more discounted price, there are still a small number of units available for pre-order that will be included in this batch of shipments.
