AXIS Gear Review: Motorize Your Existing Window Shades

For the longest time now, smart home revolutions have been neglecting window shades. AXIS has, however, come to transform this with Gear; this is the first-ever smart device designed to motorize the window shade.

AXIS Gear is equipped with built-in sensors that will allow you to automate both the opening and closing of the shadows. These features aids in adding comfort, safety, and convenience, making it ideal for both you and your family. Unlike traditional motorization that costs more than $400 per window, the AXIS Gear is highly affordable.

In addition to being luxurious, AXIS Gear costs approximately $145, which makes it utterly accessible. Moreover, AXIS Gear is relatively easy to install, and it only requires basic knowledge. It comes with a mounting bracket that allows you to connect Gear on the inside and outside the mount.

Final Verdict

Personally, I hate adjusting my patio curtain blinds just because it is very inconvenient. I live in Austin where it can transition from sunny to cloudy weather in minutes. In such a case, I don’t want to go adjust my curtain manually. If you are in such a situation, getting an automated curtain robot could really help you. Also, with Axis Gear, you can control the blinds with your voice or smartphone which is super simple. And the smart scheduling feature is very useful too. Overall, this product seems like a good home automation tool to own.
