    Soma Smart Shades - great product!

    This is a great way to automate your curtains. Easy to install and setup, quick to get going and works perfectly. I have it on a corded curtain track and it works fine. I've now ordered 3 more.


    Relatively straightforward to setup although I couldn't get Google home to work with it. It's also very loud so not great for opening blinds in the morning.

    Not worth the price

    3 times the price of an aqara unit, yes very good motor and lifts any blind and very quiet, but comes with only double side tape that was too weak and fell off, had to replace. Worse thing about it with its price point, they have no wifi connection, you have to pay another $100 for a bridge, that is a joke.


    Works perfectly well for our needs.

    Cool device

    I can't get enough of the convenience that Soma Smart Shades 2 brings to my home. The installation process was a breeze, and now I can control the shades from anywhere with the app. The integration with smart home systems like Alexa and Google Assistant is seamless, making it a joy to use. These shades have transformed my living spaces and made my life so much easier
