When You Need A Replacement For Your Automated Blinds

Installing motorised blinds in your home is a great way to update your property. With an automated system, you gain complete control over your lighting conditions and can open and close blinds in any room. Depending on the type of motorised system you choose, you can control your blinds from any location and even install automated settings as well.

Suitable for all types of properties, motorised blinds make a fantastic addition to family homes, character properties and apartments. Whether you’re moving into a new home, renovating your property or you simply want to turn your house into a smart home, automated blinds are the way to do it.

How Do Motorised Blinds for Homes Work?

When you install motorised blinds for homes, you can select a system which meets your own specific needs. With various systems available, Smart Blinds can talk you through the advantages of each design and help you to find the perfect automated system for your property. Delivering perfect functionality and stunning visuals, motorised blinds for homes are ideal in any residential setting.

When you install any type of blind in a residential environment, it’s important to consider the type of room you’re furnishing. In hotter and more humid rooms, such as the kitchen or bathroom, you may want to opt for a fabric which has been pre-treated to cope with the extra heat and moisture it will be subjected to. Fortunately, we can supply a range of blinds to match any motorised system and we can even retrofit new blinds to an existing automated system.

With the option to have your motorised blind system connected to the mains power or install a battery powered system, it’s easy to find a solution which matches the specifications of your existing property. Discreet battery packs can easily be placed behind blind fixtures, whilst wiring for mains powered systems can also be installed if your existing wiring doesn’t provide enough scope.

Voice-Activated Motorised Blinds for Homes

The rise of voice-activated assistances, like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home, have led to increased interest in voice-activated motorised blind systems. Compatible with a wide array of devices, your automated blinds can be integrated into existing smart home systems to deliver seamless functionality. Of course, if you’ve yet to install a voice-activated home system, now is the perfect time to do so. Making it easy to control every aspect of your home life, a voice-activated system combines simplicity and technology to ensure increased flexibility and versatility.

In addition to installing voice-activated automated blind systems, Smart Blinds offer a range of other control options. Many motorised blinds for homes come with their own dedicated remote, so it’s easy to keep track of which device is linked to each handset. Alternatively, you may prefer to opt for a motorised system which can be controlled via its own app. If you regularly use your smartphone or tablet, having a designated app to control the blinds in your property is highly user-friendly. What’s more – many app-controlled motorised blind systems enable you to open and close the blinds from any location, so you’ll have total control over your window fittings, regardless of where you are.

Whilst the vast majority of homeowners enjoy controlling their motorised blinds by voice command, dedicated apps and remote controls, you may also want to incorporate a fully automated blind system into your home. In addition to scheduling your blinds to open and close at a designated time, a completely automatic system responds to the internal and external lighting conditions and responds accordingly. As the night draws in, you won’t have to worry about closing all of the blinds as your system will automatically sense the change in light conditions and close the blinds for you. Similarly, as the sun comes up in the morning, you can be woken naturally as the light gently seeps into your bedroom via a fully automated system.

Improving Home Safety with Motorised Blinds

Although automated blinds can enhance the appearance of your property and increase the control you have over your lighting conditions, they’re also a fantastic way to improve safety in your home. With motorised blinds and automated systems, there’s no need to use blind cords. In fact, there’s no need to have blind cords installed at all when you opt for motorised blinds for homes, so you won’t have to worry about young children or pets getting caught up in them.

In addition to this, motorised blinds for the home ensure you don’t have to struggle or stretch to open and close hard-to-reach blinds. If windows are situated high up or if you have skylights or conservatories, for example, it can be tricky to open or close them without assistance. Instead of having to fetch a stool or stepladder every time you want to open or close them, you can simply call out a command or press a button and watch as they respond.
