Home Automation is the automatic and electronic control of household features, activity, and appliances. Benefits are that your shades are automatically controlled by time or events, such as opening/closing at certain times, that you set in advance.
Leviosa Motor Shades are Home Automation Ready Today! Already compatible with many systems (see below). You can control your shades from your Apple or Android device, set schedules for automatic operation, use VOICE control (Alexa, Google Home), and/or continue to use your remote control as normal.
Leviosa Zone: The Zone will control up to 6 different groups of shades, with unlimited number of shades in each group - endless possibilities for control! Easy to link to your Local Area Network (similar to Alexa and Google Home), it is small (3"x3"x2") so it hides on a side table or in a cabinet as it uses RF signals (penetrates walls, etc.). Using your home wifi, it plugs into common mini-USB (provided) from any wall outlet - not your router. The App is FREE and available via Android Play Store or Apple (iOS) App Store, with customize-able location names and the ability to set open and close times for each group (and ALL groups) based on days of the week. You can even have multiple controllers in your home or at different locations and still control all your shades from the Ap. Control your shades anywhere in the World (via mobile data). Best yet, the Zone is 100% compatible with Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, Google Home, and other systems after confirmation testing. VOICE-CONTROL is easy to setup.
** Good news for past purchasers of Leviosa products: We guarantee all 2017 and 2018 Leviosa shades sold are compatible with Leviosa Zone controller.
