Blackout shades are a dream for anyone who’s looking to sleep like a baby every single night. They help facilitate melatonin production and regulate your sleep cycle. But come morning, when it’s time to wake up your entire body and soul to kickstart the day, opening those blinds can prove to be a pain. You already struggled with keeping your fingers from hitting the snooze button. Now you have to get up and open the blinds, too? No, thank you.

If only you could clap your hands to open and close your blinds like they do in the movies, you probably would. But no solid technology exists to make that happen just yet. The next best thing is the AXIS Gear Smart Blinds Controller, which provides an easy way to motorize your existing shades.

Capable of automating your window blinds, shades, and curtains, all you have to do is to install this device on your window frame, attach it to the beaded chain or cord loop, and snap it onto the mounting bracket. Installation takes two minutes max, and you pair the device to a dedicated smartphone app that lets you control your newly-minted smart blinds. You have the option to control it manually, but you can also set up custom schedules and times throughout the day. You can even time it along with your morning alarm, so you can have your curtains drawn as soon as you open your eyes. Good morning, sunshine indeed!
