+1 For shallowearth's comments. Ditch the solar panel and run off cable and you have a chance. Otherwise, very soso. i have one but i am not buying more.
Unfortunately, the saying 'you get what you pay for' is very true here.

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.

Sounds like they need to go on Shark Tank to get some funding. So are there any other affordable alternatives out there that wont cost hundreds of dollars?

Anyone in the UK thinking about getting a Move and just wants to trial it first?
I have a bluetooth version which can be used to see what you think before buying the Z-wave version.
All in as new condition.
