HomeKit Blinds

Step into the future with Smart Home functionality

Apple HomeKit Blinds

Apple have made it really easy to control all of your home’s smart accessories from your iPhone, Apple Watch, and any of your favourite Apple devices. Using Apple HomeKit, you can control everything from lights and heating to blinds, from the touch of a button, automatic presets, or by voice control using Siri.

Lutron are one of the leading pioneers of HomeKit, which is no surprise as they are constantly at the forefront of technology and advancement. Their new additions to HomeKit mean that you can control the blinds in your home or office from your voice alone; bringing the convenience of a smart home to your fingertips and lips. If you’re ready to upgrade your windows, Tidmarsh and Lutron are the multi-award winning company to choose for great looks and even better performance from your Homekit Blinds.

Getting Started

Getting started with HomeKit and Lutron is very easy. All you’ll need is a Lutron Smart Bridge, and at least one blind or shade. Install the Smart Bridge, download the Lutron app, and add your blinds. Siri can be set up in a few short steps through the Lutron app integration. It only takes ten minutes to connect everything up, the shades to the app, bridge and remote.

HomeKit is intuitive with Lutron shades; you can use Siri to open the blind, close the mind, or set the blinds to a specific percentage open. You can even use natural language like “Lower the blinds”, or “Open the window a little”, and Siri will understand.

Complete Control

HomeKit features the ability to use Automation, whereby you could ask the blinds to open depending on your location, the time of day, or the temperature. The Lutron app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices, also allows you to programme schedules to open and close your shades automatically at specific times, or sunrise and sunset – making this an ideal functionality for anywhere you need privacy.

You can even control Lutron Blinds with other HomeKit accessories based on your routine, for example, setting up a “Good Night” scene could lower the blinds, turn off the lights and turn the thermostat down. These scenes can be activated by voice using Siri, by using the Home app, or from your Apple Watch. At the end of a long day, it’s so nice to be able to just crawl into bed and close the blinds, without your head even leaving the pillow. Tidmarsh and Lutron can make this happen with Siri and Apple HomeKit.

One of the best features of a bespoke blind or curtain is the ability to tailor each covering for a specific use or environment. Your window coverings can create a unique design feature, pull the look of a room together, or fade into the background. There are different fabric options available for any style and finish, providing great privacy and light control options.
