In this time of Smart Homes and interactive Apps we are constantly looking for more of our lives to be made easier by motorisation. One of the areas where this can be achieved is through Motorised Blinds.
There are many different types of blinds that can have a motor, I am going to concentrate on Wooden Venetian Blinds in this Blog.
Wooden Venetian Blinds make an excellent window covering,. Combining both privacy and light, and they are made even better when you can operate them with the push of a button.
There are two ways to power Motors for Wooden Venetian Blinds, Double Rechargeable Battery Packs or Mains Powered.
Double Battery Packs
These are the neatest venetian blinds to fit. The removable battery packs can be fitted behind the headrail of the blind and are easily rechargeable. A double battery pack is used as the blinds are quite heavy to raise and lower. The second Battery Pack supplies additional power for this operation.
These blinds are fantastic, however, due to the weight, are only available in limited width to drop combinations.
Our consultants would be able to let you know minimum and maximum sizes and the best option for your window
These blinds can be larger as they are powered by Mains Electricity. As with all of our mains operated blinds we only supply the blinds with a standard UK plug. We do not chase out walls for cables, or hard wire blinds in.
Operation of Motorised Blinds
These Wooden Venetian Blinds are operated either using a remote control, or with the purchase of a Home Hub. This option allows you to control the blinds via your mobile phone or Smart Speaker.
With the remote control option, the blinds can be Raised and Lowered, and stopped wherever wanted. The slats can be tilted using the control wheel.
Home Hubs add more functions for your blinds. On the associated App you can set timers, personalise the positioning of your blinds. In addition it allows you to access your blinds wherever you are in the world. The Home Hubs are also compatible with a variety of Smart Speakers, allowing you to adjust your blinds with just a voice!
Tilt Only Option on Our Faux Wood Venetian Range
Excitingly, we can also motorise the tilt only on our increasingly popular Faux Wood Venetian Range. This is battery operated only and is still size limited, however it can make a slightly more inaccessible blind easier to operate. Although please remember, you will need to be able to reach the blind for recharging.
