“smart” blind solutions in the UK

“smart” blind solutions in the UK

it was probably discussed to death, but anyway. looking to make my existing rolls smart and compatible with homekit. I’m in the UK and I really only found 2 (maybe 3) possible solutions ** Ikea ** – ready-made blinds, so as to replace the existing blinds. they look like a good product, the only problem is that the dimensions I make them do not match any of my windows. I am in the UK and it is a 10 year old house that seems to have standard British sized windows – however none of the Ikea sizes match any of my windows – so it is a ** Soma ** – it does not match existing rolls, but homekit is not “official”, I can run the soma connection on a Pi that I already have, so there is no real problem, but 100 GBP per blind! ** Aqara ** – products appear soon apparently? but there are no vendors in the UK and it seems to use a Chinese based app? do I have other options available to me?
