The benefits of electric blinds

 

Have you ever considered the benefits of electric (or automated) blinds? Recent developments in blinds technology, coupled with extended ranges in style and colour, have made the installation of electric blinds highly desirable. Here at Bob The Blindman, we have certainly seen a sales increase in Shropshire.

Automated blinds are excellent to use for those more hard-to-reach windows; in high-ceilinged rooms perhaps or where there are large expanses of glass with multiple doors and windows to shade, such as in conservatories or modern kitchen extensions. Media rooms and home cinemas where total blackout is imperative are also ideal places for an electric blinds solution.

Installing motorised blinds will not only save you the repetitive chore of opening and closing your blinds, it will ensure that the blinds are opened and closed correctly every time and so there will be less wear and tear than you may get from manually handling them on a daily basis. Automation is a real plus in particular for homeowners who have mobility issues – from the comfort of your chair you can totally control the natural light in your room.

However, where the real excitement comes with automated blinds is the flexibility they can give you. These blinds can be timer-controlled to open and close at any time of the day or night and pre-programming means you can even get them set to work while you are away on holiday, which adds an extra layer to your home security. The latest intelligent blind control systems can be controlled from wall-mounted buttons but also via smartphone apps, so you can have full control at your fingertips even when you are not in the building.

Furthermore, light and temperature sensors can be added to an electric blinds system. These sensors can be set to automatically open and close blinds according to the amount of sunshine, ensuring that the temperature in the room is evenly controlled.

There has also been an explosion in the design and style options available for automated blinds. You can make a real feature out of your blinds by choosing a striking contemporary pattern or a bold bright colour or you can go for a more discreet and neutral palette.
