Why would you want motorised blinds?

Convenience – With a remote control, at the touch of a button you can open and close your blinds as many times as you wish.
Child Safety – Motorised blinds are inherently safe by design as they remove the need for operating cords altogether and therefore remove the potential danger to children.
Home Automation – Motorised blinds can be integrated with Smart home systems and you can even be voice operated if they are integrated with a home hub such as Alexa or Google.
Saving Energy – if your blinds are connected to a home hub or a sun sensor the blinds can be automatically adjusted to open or close to save energy
Enhanced Security – Making your home appear as though it is occupied is an effective way to detour would be intruders.

Operating your motorised blinds

Depending on the particular type of blinds and the area they are to be used, they can be

  • 240v mains powered
  • 24v powered via transformers
  • 12v battery powered

and can be controlled by a wall switch, hand held remote control, voice controlled or integrated into your smart home system.
