Sounds awesome. I am not a kickstart/indigogo person but as soon as its for sale I will buy a bunch.  I hope this shows up as a zwave shade for existing UI5.

If this becomes a thing I will happily make solar kits as an add-on so we dont need to worry about batteries.

They do come with solar panels. Seems people have received them and some minor issues have been found.
Seems the beaded chains make a clicking noise and they are redesigning the sprocket. Also in some cases the battery doesn't seem to provide enough power for heavy blinds so you have to use the power supply. Teething problems mostly it seems so I'm pretty confident about the zwave version I upgraded mine to. Which should have most kinks worked out...

I am still waiting for the bluetooth version. Maybe its fortunate that it has not yet been delivered. That said, I don't need it for beaded chain and hopefully it not a heavy blind.

How do you order one of these. I can't seem to find a buy link anywhere on the site.

The bluetooth version was a Kickstarter project which was funded and has ended.

The ZWave version is an indiegogo project and can be found below. Not sure if you can still get one.

Blind Valet Web now has Portuguese and Spanish versions to go with the original English and French.  If you are bi-lingual and would like a version in your native language, let me know.

$45?  More like $60+ on their website.  Did they raise the price?

Yep, after the campaign ended! Pretty common on these crowdfounding sites!

They just made an update:

Update

First we like to apologize that we have not made an update earlier, we have all been really busy pushing forward with our production capabilities, partner discussions, distribution channels and technology development.

Like you all probably know we have a partner called Telldus that is responsible for the development of the z-wave software inside MOVEZ. Telldus have built a home automation system based upon z-wave and have made a lot of z-wave products that they have available for sale in their web shop at www.telldus.se if anyone is interested in gearing up =)

The work of making the software MOVEZ:s forward as planned and if we do not stumble upon any unforeseen things in the development should be on time, but we are not out of the woods just yet so it?s too early to say for sure.

Some really good news is that we have improved the cog wheel spool and all MOVEZ will be supplied with the new spool and hopefully we will also have had the chance to improve (or make) more accessories so MOVEZ will work even better with different window coverings. The ability to use special accessories for different window coverings and equip MOVEZ with the ones needed for the moment have been one of our most central goals in the basic design. Thanks to this we can continue to make improvements and all users will be able to use the improvements.

We like to thank everyone for the support and we feel that MOVEZ will be a really solid product and you have all made an excellent choice pre ordering one.

FYI - I would beware here a bit.  The company was running out of capital sold stopped filling backers prepaid orders and sold them on their online store (so kind of double dipping there to stay solvent).  About half their BT backers never received there Moves.  Then they turned around and starting pre selling Z-Wave.  But many original BT backers never received their units.  They keep promising they will ship them eventually.

In my opinion product is of so/so quality.  Not terrible except for the solar panel which is complete junk and won't charge the batteries.  Depending on your blinds expect to have to charge the batteries every few days to every few weeks.  I just keep mine plugged in and don't use batteries, they get more power that way.
