Soma Smart Shades 2
If you’re looking for a retrofit option, Soma is the avenue to explore.
The Smart Shades 2 are physically unchanged now for a second edition, but fix existing primary issues with the original.

Upon completion of your installation, just download the Soma app (iOS and Android) to automate your shades quickly. The software lets you create “triggers,” including the time of day, sunrise / sunset, and general lighting conditions, for the pack to respond to. For fast battery re-juicing, the pack is solar-powered and comes with a USB charging cord.
If you add the Soma Link to your smart house, intelligent voice commands are accessible via Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri. Until allowed, you can ask Alexa to do stuff like open your blinds halfway or build rituals that will always close your blinds at 7 p.m. Just in time to turn on the smart lights.
