Ready to go
IKEA's FYRTUR Blackout Roller Blinds come in sizes ranging from 23-inches to 48-inches wide, each of which can cover up to 76-inch tall windows. The FYRTUR Blinds are simple to install with a rechargeable battery supplying the juice for months in between charges. These smart blinds operate with a small wireless remote, but connecting these blinds to HomeKit requires IKEA's TRADFRI Gateway, so be sure to pick one up if you plan to install these in your home.
Smart and affordable
Unlike other HomeKit options, the SmartWings Motorized Roller Shades do not require a home hub to get them connected. These indoor blinds from SmartWings utilize Bluetooth connectivity so you can pair them directly to your smart home, and since there is no hub involved, they are the most affordable way to add HomeKit to your windows. These blinds are available in many colors and sizes and come in other styles, such as a unique zebra blind and a wood-look finish.
Serena Smart Shades are part of the Lutron Caseta Wireless line, our go-to recommendation for HomeKit light switches, as they are ultra-responsive and reliable. Serena Shades are custom order blinds cut to the exact measurements you provide, and they come in various styles, like honeycomb cellular blinds, wood blinds, and roller blinds. Just make you have a Caseta Wireless Smart Bridge in your home if you want the smarts.
Thread inside and out
Powered by Eve MotionBlind technology, Omnia's Smart Roller Blinds support the latest smart home connectivity standard, Thread. With Thread, Omnia's blinds feature quicker response times, greater reliability over Bluetooth, and a hassle-free setup that doesn't require entering in your Wi-Fi password or installing a dedicated hub.

Like IKEA's FYRTUR blinds, the TREDANSEN lineup comes in several pre-sized options that cover most standard window sizes. These blinds — available in black-out and light filtering styles, feature a more traditional cellular blind design but still include conveniences such as rechargeable batteries, physical remotes, and, HomeKit. The only downside? HomeKit requires IKEA's TRADFRI Gateway to make all of the magic happen.
