FlipFlic is a device that connects to your existing window blinds and acts as an automatic tilting wand to open or close the blinds. The unit has an integrated battery and recharges through micro USB from a solar panel attached to the window. If the user doesn’t want the solar panel charging standard micro USB charging can be done at estimated thirty day intervals.
An app controls the blinds being open or shut. Temperature can be set so that the blinds actuate if the room becomes too warm or too cool.
