Market Problem

DID YOU KNOW THAT BUILDINGS CONSUME 40% OF ALL ENERGY, PRIMARILY IN LIGHTING, HEATING AND COOLING?

Yet 1/3rd of this energy is wasted or leaked and 50% of this energy lost is lost through its window – a $35 billion dollar problem.

One of the most effective and simplest ways to reduce this energy loss is to install automated “Smart Shades”, which can reduce lighting energy by 74% and cooling by 24%!

Not only do Smart Shades save energy, but they provide greater comfort and convenience, particularly for the aging population, seniors, and the disabled – providing them with a solution to help them lift heavy shades and live independently.

The number of adults aged 85 and older, the group most often needing help with basic personal care, will nearly quadruple between 2000 and 2040. Nurses and caregivers report significant time spent on simply raising and lowering their window shades.

The solution is simple – mass adoption of Smart Shades. But there is a problem.

Product Roadmap: SmartShades Are 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 2023

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 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 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.

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 capital.

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!
