This is a device that brings your shades and blinds out of the Dark Ages. The idea is you spool the cord you would normally pull to open blinds through their solar powered device. After that you use an app to control them and it's even programmable, opening or closing automatically depending on the time, temperature or intensity of sunlight. Pick one up for around $60.
2. Smart Lamp by Luke Roberts
Like most connected lights, it has an app to control its color. It also has a motion sensor to turn it on and off automatically, but their video highlights a unique feature. You get unlimited lighting possibilities by simply painting your light. Just take out your phone and start painting the light in the desired direction. The more light you paint, the brighter it gets — light it up, Picasso! You can preorder one now for around $500 and it should ship in May.
3. Philips Hue
This is a family of connected lights looking to set the mood in your home. Through an app you can turn them on or off and it controls the color and brightness to set the right mood, or set auto on and off times. From light bulbs to lamps to strips, they've created ways to light almost any space in your home. You can pick them up now and they start at around $30.
