3 Adapters and 3 Tips that will make sure the Sunsa Wand works with horizontal blinds, vertical blinds or mini blinds.

How to Use Sunsa Wand

Setup

The Sunsa Wand claims a two minute installation. Simply replace the existing wand on your blinds with the Sunsa Wand and attach the adapter to keep the wand in place. Then setup the wands through the Sunsa Wand app and connect to Wifi — no extra hub is required. Sunsa Wand has multiple power options: four AA Batteries, a wall plug, or even a solar adapter so no batteries are ever required.

Use

The Sunsa Wand will operate through a dedicated app or voice control through Amazon Echo (Google Assistant, IFTTT, Apple HomeKit, Samsung SmartThings, and others are on the roadmap for development soon). Of course, users can still use the wand by hand to manually open or close the blinds.

Output

The Sunsa Wand will allow users to keep their existing blinds, and control them from anywhere through their phone. The application will allow users to create schedules to automatically open and close your blinds or groups of blinds set by the user. An integrated sensor within the wand will measure room temperature and open/close the blinds at a temperature users specify to save on energy bills and help maintain an ideal temperature. A light sensor is also built-in to detect light coming through the window, and open/close based on user’s preference.

Why You Should Get Sunsa Wand

Adding existing blinds to a smart home has been difficult, with only a few solutions available, and none that could operate a wand-based mechanism… until the Sunsa Wand. Any users, like myself, who have been searching in vain will be thrilled that a solution has been found.
