Every decade or so, there is a new product that seems so extravagant and so un-necessary, that it is deemed a toy for the rich, or a play-thing of the super-techy. There was a time that a smart phone was a luxury. iPads and tablets were only for the bleeding edge tech crowd. Heck, there was even a time when automatic car windows were luxurious upgrade that only the most well-to-do would bother to splurge on (With car windows, it's gotten so advanced, we don't even want to have to hold the button anymore).
With the speed of advancements in Smart Home technology, automated shades and blinds are rapidly transitioning from the world of dreams and fantasy, to the world of reality, and there are MANY very good reasons for this.
