We told you about Tilt My Blinds, a device that attaches to and automates your existing horizontal blinds. But what if you have plantation shutters instead of blinds? Well, there’s a way to automate them, too. A Kickstarter campaign has been successfully funded, and ShutterEaze is currently production phase. ShutterEaze requires you to mount the AA battery-powered motorized unit to the frame and to attach a louver clip to a louver on each blind you want to control. You can then use a smartphone app to control your shutters manually or program them to open/close on a schedule. If you prefer, you can purchase a RF remote control to manually control the shutters, but you won’t be able to program them with the remote. There’s no price listed on the ShutterEaze site yet, but you can probably expect to pay more than the Kickstarter pledge of $189.00 for a starter set to control four shutters. You can leave your name at the website to be added to the notification list when the ShutterEaze is available for purchase.
