Home automation has grown in popularity in recent years, with easily installed devices such as Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa widely available nowadays. Did you know you can also motorise your blinds and curtains in your home?

With automated blinds, you can enjoy a bit of added luxury and convenience. There are also other great advantages to using motorised curtains and blinds!

Convenience at your fingertips
The obvious benefit is comfort and convenience. If you can already use a remote for your TV, stereo, and air conditioners, then why not remotely control your curtains as well? This is especially helpful for hard-to-reach places such as high windows or for those needing an extra hand, such as seniors in assisted living.

Safety for your family
If you have young toddlers or children in your family, curtain chains, cords, and rods can risk injury or choking. Motorisation eliminates the need for manual operated chains and cords, keeping your family safe. In addition, you save time having to detangle messy chains, and your windows will look great without a bunch of unsightly, dangling cords.

Modernisation
In an age of digitalisation and growing home automation, this modern trend is undoubtedly here to stay. Why not get ahead and start enjoying the convenience? You don’t walk over to your TV, so it makes sense that we’re now moving away from having to walk over to win-dows. With motorisation and automation, you can also pre-set and program times for your blinds and curtains to open or close for added security and privacy.

Longer lasting coverings
Another advantage to motorisation is that your window coverings can last longer with less wear and tear from the rough manual operations. This is excellent news for homeowners and knowing that their blinds can last longer with automation, it is a worthwhile invest-ment to a new home or an updated installation.

So, how does it all work?
It’s easier than you think. Motorised binds require only a small motor to power in most cas-es and can be adjusted to suit the type and weight of your blinds.
