Graber Virtual Cord™ App

Graber developed an app exclusively for Graber motorized blinds and shades. Easy setup and easy to use, the Graber Virtual Cord App is a fully integrated window treatment control that makes life easier-and that means more safety and comfort for you.
- Intuitive and user-friendly
- Unique user experience allows you to control any-and all!-Graber Virtual Cord - Shades
- Powered by Z-Wave technology for broader in-home range
- Monitors the battery life of your paired remotes
- Required Graber Virtual Cord Gateway is the size of a USB drive and plugs easily into an outlet, out of sight

Easy Setup of Shades: Follow the easy instructions to control a single motorized shade or a whole houseful-up to 30 per gateway device*-right from a phone or tablet. Set a scene for each room, raising and lowering shades at set times.

Customize Your Control: Program shades to open and close at specific times, and override the set times for complete control.

Smart Home Integration: Because we use a gateway device to pair shades with the app, shades can be joined with in-home smart devices, like Alexa and Google Home.

Whole Family Life Hack: Download the app to each family member's mobile device to connect everyone to the shades-and assign different levels of permission to the kids.

Convenience: Set multiple routines for the whole home; for example, lower children's bedroom shades before bedtime, raise bedroom shades with the sunrise, etc. Even override scenes when traveling.

Safety: Look like you're at home, even when you're not, by raising and lowering shades automatically.

Energy Efficiency: About 30% of a home's heating energy is lost through windows. Automating allows you to strategically open shades to allow sunlight to help heat your home or close them to maximize insulation at the window. You can also reduce heat gain from sunlight in the summer.

For the Sophisticated Home: From the beauty of Graber Shades to the beauty of cutting-edge control of those shades, Graber ensures each room makes a powerful, sophisticated statement.

*Number of shades per gateway depends on many factors, including the number of remotes added. Each shade associates exclusively with one gateway; you cannot control the same shade with multiple gateway devices. If a home requires more shades be lifted, simply add another gateway device.

Waste of Time and Money

The motorization with the Virtual Cord app is not reliable. The gateway regularly loses connection. The shades regularly say “device failed to communicate” and the “favorites” setting only works a couple of times and then stops working. I have programmed the favorite position multiple times, and the shade/app forgets the programming after a couple of uses. I’ve wasted more time messing with the programming than I would have spent manually opening and closing the shades for years. These shades are definitely not “smart.” If you’re looking for reliable, time saving shades, look elsewhere.

Hideous and frustrating

This morning I got over 20 emails seconds apart telling me my routines were running. I have a phantom routine that has disappeared completely from the app and now can NEVER be altered. For the thousands of dollars I paid for these shades I expected better. Tech support has been useless!!!

Doesn’t work with large homes

Have had the app and shades for several months. Have been unable (along with the rep and customer service) to get the shades to work all at once.

Graber says it must be my WiFi but all of my other WiFi services work appropriately.

The shades go up when they’re supposed to go down and the gateway constantly loses its connection to the internet necessitating the resetting and reprogramming of all the shades.

I spent nearly $15,000.00 on these shades and am very disappointed in their reliability.
