Modern day automated roller blinds have a sleek design – all motors are tubular, meaning that they are inserted into the roller blind’s tube and the majority of them have no other parts fitted outside, making motorized roller blinds probably the best looking blinds in our range. The motors are usually controlled with a remote – this is the easiest way to enjoy all the benefits of automatic blinds. We can supply remotes with a different number of channels, making it possible to control up to 15 blinds with 1 remote. You can also operate multiple blinds at the same time.
Some of our motorised roller blinds can even be controlled via your cell phone, either iOS or Android. You would require an additional hub unit (such as Somfy Connexoon) which would be able to transmit the signal from your phone’s app to the blinds’ motor. This would allow you to set up alarms, so that the blinds would automatically go up/down depending on the time of the day. These systems can also be integrated into smart home systems and controlled via Google Home or Amazon Alexa systems. You could even close or open your blinds when you’re not at home – from your office or while being at a supermarket.
There is a range of options on how the blinds are powered and charged:
The exact cost of motorized roller blinds depends on the final specifications of the roller blind, including its measurements and the type of motor used. As a general guide, approximate cost to motorize 1 roller blind using a high quality reliable automation package is about 400 dollars.
Our range of motorized honeycomb blinds is great – unobtrusive built in motors fitted inside the headrails make operating your automated honeycomb blinds much easier.
