Based in Sweden OmniaBlinds announced today their plans to launch their first set of Thread compatible rollers in September this year. The company, in collaboration with Coulisse and Eve, will offer custom blinds - material and motor - with a range of 170 (!) Different fabric options.
the company states that the price will depend on the size of the covered window, with a minimum price of about 300 USD, but with free worldwide delivery. Blinds will be offered in custom sizes ranging from a minimum width of 62cm / 24.41 in, up to the maximum 260cm / 102.36 in, and a maximum drop of 285cm / 112.1 in.
UPDATE: OmniBlinds has informed us that the product uses a USB-C power connection for recharging, not Micro-USB as previously mentioned.
The blind motor is battery powered and is charged via a micro-USB-C port (hatred!) and cable and it will take six hours for a full charge. A fully charged battery will last an average of one year, with an estimated battery life of 300 charges before a replacement is required.
was pushed as a connection protocol for this product, it should be noted that currently, while the company's website states that Bluetooth is used, Thread-based devices actually use Bluetooth chips capable of Thread as a backup protocol if Thread is not available for any reason, so this is nothing out of the ordinary, and since the videos and promotional images contain all the Thread and HomeKit logos, they will probably be the first Thread blinds to hit the market.
The company currently offers a 15% discount on their order when you sign up and place an order through the company’s website.
