This article was updated 5th November 2017

Today, I took a live chat enquiry from a customer who is interested in controlling their blinds with Amazon Echo.

Controlling Blinds with Samsung Smartthings
We're being asked rather a lot at the moment if it's possible to control our blinds using Smartthings by Samsung.
Smartthings is a low(ish) cost home control system that is possible to configure yourself to control a number of compatible devices within the home. It is exclusively distributed through Amazon and Currys/PC World. It uses z-wave technology, but doesn't appear to support a great number of other products "out of the box".
