How Henry B Uses Weekly Schedules to Automate His Shades

One of the number 1 ways that our customers love to use their automated shades is by using the scheduling feature.

Here at RYSE, we are constantly surveying our customers to see what features they like and what features they don’t like. Time and time again, our surveys show us that being able to schedule their shades is an invaluable feature.

However, sometimes we don’t need even need to ask! We love when our customers enjoy something enough that they go out of their way to leave us a review.

This is exactly what happened when Henry B left us a 5-star review to let us know his thoughts.

This is what Henry had to say:

If you’re planning on installing and configure your shades on a weekly schedule and forget about them – this will be excellent.


Let’s take a deeper look into our scheduling feature and how customers like Henry use this extremely deep and flexible feature.

Scheduling Your Home with Smart Blinds

Fully featured automated blinds and shades with scheduling/timer controls can now be enjoyed by everyone and anyone.

…and the best part?

They can be programmed and customized to fit your unique lifestyle.

For example, Henry uses scheduling to set up a weekly schedule. This allows him to:

  • Use his window blinds (and the natural sun they let in) to work as a natural alarm clock.
  • Set his shades to open in the morning depending on his work schedule.
  • Set his shades to close at night for privacy.
  • Set different schedules for the weekday vs weekends.

In addition to the technical aspects of when and how Henry sets up his weekly schedule, he mentions something remarkable about what the scheduling allows him to do.

With scheduling, Henry doesn’t have to worry about his window shades anymore. In his exact words, he can forget about them!

Set and Forget Your Window Shades

Let’s face it: although your window shades may look great, you probably don’t want to think about them all too often.

Getting up to adjust them to adjust the temperature, see outside, or to get some privacy can be a pain if you have to do this constantly throughout the day.

How great would it be if, like Henry says, you can just forget about them?

It’s one thing to be able to motorize your window shades, but here at RYSE we think the true potential of SmartShades is in home automation.

This is why we’ve created all these great ways you can set and forget your shades:

  • Scheduling individual shades
  • Scheduling groups of shades
  • Smart Home integrations
  • Voice control

Those are a lot of great ways that you can automate your window shades. But, just like Henry, you can do quite a lot with our powerful scheduling feature.

In fact, a lot of our customers use scheduling in a bunch of other unique ways. So, let’s take a look into how other customers are using scheduling.

How People Are Using Schedules

Here are 4 more ways that RYSE customers use scheduling:

1. One less chore in the morning

Mornings are the most hectic time of the day. Gear takes care of your window shades for you so you can focus on the important things.

Prepare that healthy breakfast, get your kids ready for school, and be more energized to take on the day!

2. Security when you’re away

Protect your home and everything inside it. With your shades programmed to adjust throughout the day, you can simulate presence to prevent burglars or other unwelcome guests.

3. Plant care

Plants have feelings too! Give your plants all the sunlight they need by automating your shades to open up throughout the day.

4. Elderly care

Are heavy or out-of-reach window shades a problem for your parents or grandparents? Schedule their shades to automatically open and close when needed.
