CES 2019: Axis Gear Smart Shade Controller

Allison interviews Manu Menon, COO at Axis, about their new Gear smart shade controller. Gear is custom-engineered hardware that will automatically or on command lift and lower your existing window shades. Gear works with any shade with a beaded chain or cord loop. If you pull your shades with one hand, Gear will work as planned. It is compatible with a variety of shades, blinds, curtains, and drapes regardless of their size or weight. With the Gear mobile app (Android and iOS), you can control your shades while at home or remotely. You can also schedule your shades to be opened and closed automatically, including partially or fully open. The Gear controller is continuously recharged via a slim solar panel that fits discretely on your window. The setting is the CES show floor at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. Learn more at
