Ikea's smart blinds: delayed to later in 2019 

ByJordan Hobbs 2019-06-14 740

It will be necessary to wait before hanging the two HomeKit-compatible IKEA roller blinds in front of your windows. The Swedish furniture giant had promised a European launch in February for its FYRTUR (opaque) and KADRILJ (semi-transparent) blinds, and on April 1 for the United States.

Unfortunately, these two products have clearly disappeared from the German catalogue, where they had been identified in early January. According to IKEA press representatives, these roller blinds will finally only be available in mid-summer.

The delay would not be due to HomeKit or a technical problem, but to a supply concern. In a way, this is a relief since these products will remain compatible with Apple's home automation platform (as well as Alexa and Google Assistant). Nevertheless, the wait may be long.

Remember that the motors of these blinds are powered by a removable USB battery, and that in addition to the support of the connected assistants, they are delivered with a small remote control. The dimensions range from 60 to 140 cm in width, for 195 cm in height. The prices will be from 99 to 139 €.
