DreamHub – Connecting Your Shading Solutions
Smart home automation is here to stay. Take control.
The explosive popularity of Alexa, Siri and co. in recent times makes it easy to believe that recent research indicates there will be at least one smart speaker in half of all UK households by 2022. The smart home era has arrived and is here to stay.
With a supercomputer in every pocket and voice-controlled assistants helping us with everything from ‘localised climate control’ to football updates, home automation is no longer the preserve of the rich and famous. We switch on our lamps with a word, and our thermostats react automatically to frosty mornings, but the operation of window blinds has fallen behind.
Window Blind Automation
Leading window blind manufacturer, Decorquip has championed the motorisation of window blinds for many years. They know that remote operation not only makes life more comfortable and convenient but safer for our children. Smart home integration was an obvious step for them, and they wanted to provide a solution that could be easily and readily adopted. Making them part of the increasingly smart home powered daily routine. And they did it.
DreamHub Pro is Easy to Set Up
The first thing to note is that the DreamHub is superbly quick and easy to set up and operate. Even for a complete novice. Smart home technology isn’t making life any easier if it’s not easy to use.
The new DreamHub Mini does everything the DreamHub Pro does except the ability to link with third-party home automation systems.
This is a wireless device that allows your Decorquip blinds to react, in real-time, to varying intensities of sunlight.
Free Connector App
Once you’ve signed into the free Connector app, developed in partnership with Shade Connector and available on iOS and Android, you’ll have your DreamHub and blinds connected to your wifi network and operating at the swipe of a finger in just a few minutes.
From there, how much or how little you want to fall into the smart home rabbit hole is up to you!
All you need is a smartphone (iOS or Android), a wireless router, and, of course, one or more Decorquip motorised blinds from The Scottish Shutter Company.
