RYSE Is Solving Big Problems

Expensive

Motorized Shades Are Expensive

PROBLEM: Motorized shades are expensive; brands like Hunter Douglas, Lutron, QMotion, or Somfy cost upwards of $1,000 per window. Smart tinting glass? Companies like View charge $5,000 per 5×9 window! These solutions are traditionally reserved for AAA commercial buildings or ultra-luxury homes – but what about the rest of us?

SOLUTION: RYSE is the most affordable solution to motorize and automate your window shades, with the RYSE SmartShade retailing for only $149, making it an ultra-affordable luxury!

Hear What Our Investors Think About RYSE

Jeffrey Potvin

“The big opportunity with RYSE really drives down to the market opportunity. They really understand this space, and that’s going to allow them to win and allow them to attract a really good suitor.

I really believe that this market is going to grow significantly as the rest of the world starts looking into more around home automation. Think of that time when you wake up, and your blinds start to rise, and you didn’t have to do anything. This is where home automation is going, and what RYSE is going to do with blinds, is what Ecobee did to thermostats.”

– Jeffery Potvin, Supporters Fund – a Venture Capitalist fund that invests from pre-seed to Series A, with a focus on consumer products and deeptech.

Louis Dellosa

“What we liked about RYSE is that it was a technology that was designed and built in such a way that it could easily integrate in many different places with little customization.

The big opportunity we see in the smart building space and RYSE is the data-driven optimization of a home or office building. It’s cumbersome and often impractical to manually adjust energy-saving variables in your building as it’s being optimized by an algorithm. So technologies that enable remote and automatic adjustment are really the key to creating this digital transformation at scale.”

– Louis Dellosa, Cogito Capital – a North American & Asia based private equity fund that focuses on real estate, AI & IoT in the Seed to Series B stages, as well as SPAC opportunities.

The Market

According to Technavio, the Global Smart Shades Market is expected to grow from $162 million in 2019 to $1.47 billion in 2024, a CAGR of 55.6%. Of this, $247 million will come from new installations, while $1.22 billion will come from retrofits and replacements.

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.
