    Just wanted to update everyone here - our project hit the 100% mark sometime last night. Looks like we're funded.

    Much love and thanks to everyone on the HomeSeer boards that backed us! Can't wait to start shipping these bad boys.

          Zwave Automated Blinds

          If you are interested in automated blinds, check out Pella Insynctive. I have them installed, their blinds-in and room side shades as well. All run on batteries, blinds-in uses a solar panel or magnetic DC voltage connector. The room side are all D-Cell batteries and they have been running for about 4 months with no battery changes yet.

          There is no official support from HomeSeer but I notified them back in August about Pella integration. Their Insynctive site is actually very helpful with videos on how to do Zwave inclusion. You need their bridge device which when you are ordering these windows, you will likely be able to ask for it for free. I also added the battery to the bridge device (doesn't come with one and stays plugged into the wall) and its very worth it. Make sure they include it or you can buy it yourself online for less than $10.00 on Amazon like I did.

          One thing to note is that some devices show up like battery and some unknown binary switch which do not function. The blinds-in it doesn't matter but the room side would be nice if they functioned. It would be nice for HomeSeer to make this a type to recognize and include in a way some of these objects do not get created to help confusion. Also, HomeSeer could reverse the Up and Down directions because Up and Down and Down is Up when you include it. Easy to overcome but worth noting.

          There is another vendor out there that I found but lost and they do zwave battery blinds as well.

                  "Traditional motorization can cost upwards of $400 per window. AXIS Gear is an affordable luxury that only costs $95. Amazing, or what?"

                  So, is it just $95 plus whatever the z-wave option costs?

                    Early Bird is $95 per unit + $20 for Zigbee or ZWave + shipping.

                    $500 seems to be for a BETA unit and involvement in the BETA program + a final shipping device - If I read that correctly

                      As @cheeryfool mentioned, the early bird is $95 USD and adding a Z-Wave chip is an additional $20.

                      I should also mention we're phasing out the early bird pricing in a week or so also!

                        This link will work forever: igg.me/at/axis-gear

                        Indiegogo adds a little tag to the URL for each person that visits the site (for creeper-tracking purposes ) so something must have got messed up with the link Bryan posted.

                          My link still works, Telefraggers doesn't work! HomeSeer fight, HomeSeer fight!

                          Funny though, now that I have this ordered I'm looking at some nice new shades for my living room windows to use with Axis.

                            Ah, my bad - so many links!

                            Nice! If you don't mind sending 'em, it'd be cool to post up some photos of it in action to our social media pages when the time comes. That's also a pretty awesome part of the product - you can pick the shade style you exactly want and simply upgrade to motorization when you're ready!

                              Is there any update on the Z-wave for EU?

                              I'm just inches from pressing the buy button, but if it not works in EU it is kind of pointless

                                Gear generally works with anything that is looped. A straight string that needs to be angled out for operation definitely wouldn't be compatible.
                                yup, that's exactly what we have for all our blinds. Two separate strings for tilting open and closed, and a group of strings that you pull in an angle to raise and lower... so doesn't sound like it'll work unless we replace the opening mechanism with something else.

                                Thanks for the confirmation.
