As we're all aware, keeping your thermostat at an appropriate temperature in accordance with exterior weather helps save money, but the AXIS Gear takes things one step further by allowing you to make your window coverings smarter.

Able to be installed in a matter of minutes, AXIS Gear works by opening and closing your window coverings at predetermined times that you set or in reaction to weather/temperature conditions (when paired with additional sensors like the Nest home thermostat). Ideal for those who want to wake with the sun or have window coverings react accordingly when you aren't home, AXIS Gear is a great addition to the connected home.

Currently funding on Indiegogo, AXIS Gear is solar powered to control costs even more.
