Serena Shades are the best smart home upgrade I installed in 2018. These amazing shades are available in a wide range of styles and materials. They are more expensive than most of the items on this list, but they are the perfect upgrade for a bedroom, home office or living room.
Once you install these shades, you can control them with your voice, an app, a schedule or with a remote that you can mount anywhere. I link mine to a routine on Alexa and start work by opening them. They are also set to automatically close five minutes after I typically quit work to keep my office hidden from anyone looking in.
You will need to custom order to fit your window. Learn more at Serena Shades.
