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: Q4-2022
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: 2023
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: 2023
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.

Market Opportunity

Market Opportunity

Less than 8% of new window shade purchases are motorized due to high cost and lack of retrofits. RYSE has the potential to automate the other 92% of shades already installed in buildings and homes – that’s a lot of shades!

And the Smart Shades category is experiencing an explosive growth rate of over 55% annually. This market is still in its infancy, and is expected to grow to a whopping $1.47 billion by 2024, with over 80% of this growth being attributed to retrofits and replacements – our core strength.

Invest In A Greener Future


Invest In A Greener Future

With new laws and regulations – such as the Green New Deal – governments are requiring that all new buildings be net-zero in carbon emissions by 2030. RYSE SmartShades save energy in two ways:

☀️ Solar Heat Gain Management
Automatically lowering shades to block direct sunlight can reduce indoor cooling costs by up to 24%.

💡 Daylight Harvesting
Automatically opening shades during overcast or bright weather can reduce indoor lighting costs by up to 74%.

Smart Home Exits

The Smart Home industry is expected to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate of 7.5%, growing from $158 billion in 2018, all the way to $262 billion by 2025. The industry has seen some spectacular exits, with big tech giants acquiring many start-ups resulting in large payouts for investors:

Google acquired Nest, the makers of the Smart Thermostat, for $3.2 billion, earning investors a 22X return on invested capitalread more here.

Remember Ring? They got rejected on Shark Tank, and ended up selling to Amazon for $1.2 billion. Ring’s founder then became a guest Shark on the show, with the last laugh!

Assa Abloy is a $260+ billion company who dominates door locks, purchased August, the makers of the Smart Lock to expand into the smart home!
