What are motorised blinds?

Motorised blinds are a type of blind that work via a motor to open or close. These are cordless and are either remotely operated or are set to a timer to open and close at specific times of the day. These blinds can also be controlled via smart phone app or smart home devices like Alexa or Google Home.

What are the advantages of motorised blinds?

There are a wide range of advantages and benefits to choosing motorised blinds for your property. These include:

  • Improved safety
  • Protection from sun damage
  • Increased home security
  • Improving sleep quality

Motorised blinds can be a safer option than standard blinds as these completely free of any cords or pull systems. This means that for young children and pets, the risks and hazards associated with standard blinds simply don’t apply, and you can install these in any children’s bedroom or family space without worry.

Motorised blinds help protect your space from sun damage

Sun damage can be detrimental for any room, with furniture, walls and ornaments becoming bleached by the sunlight and faded. By using motorised blinds, you can specify times when the blinds should be open or closed, and by changing this to match the sunlight causing damage in your space, you can ensure that your blinds will open and close automatically when needed, even when you’re not at home.

Motorised blinds help to improve home security

When you are away from home for extended periods of time, home security can be under threat. With motorised blinds, you can operate your blinds from wherever you are, or you can use the timer system, to make sure that your blinds open and close at key points throughout the day. This can deter criminals from attempting to enter your property, as it provides the illusion of occupancy.
