There are numerous reasons and the more common answer is “there are too many windows to go and operate individually. I want a solution that is easy ”.

We also find customers that have individual blinds motorized due to mobility issues. From inaccessible windows due to height or blinds tied into home automation,  motorized blinds are more commonly found in everyday homes and feature-rich smart homes.

Motorized blinds make life easier


There are many excellent reasons why homeowners increasingly choose motorized products to meet their window covering needs. These include:

  • Convenience: The ease of operating motorized window coverings makes them much more convenient to use In fact, studies have shown that motorized window coverings are more likely to be used to control light levels, as well as to insulate and control solar heat gain,
  • Accessibility: Motorized window coverings are perfect for hard-to-reach window locations where manual operation is difficult or not possible,
  • Appearance: Motorized window coverings have no manual operation devices (such as pull cords or chains) to detract from their appearance,
  • Safety: Motorized window coverings reduce the potential safety risks associated with pull cords or chains,
  • Automation: Hard-wired motorized window coverings offer many automation options, including the ability to be integrated with lighting or home automation systems, which offers enhanced energy and cost savings.
    • Window coverings can be programmed to operate at appropriate times of the day to help decrease energy usage in the home.
    • Homeowners can simplify operation of automated components by using just one command to initiate multiple actions
