Getting To Know Motorised Blinds

Why choose motorised blinds? Imagine this scenario.

You’re trying to relax on the couch, but a glaring streak of light on the TV is bothering you. No matter how you shift your position, the glare won’t go away. So, you stand up and walk over to the window to adjust the blind.

But it’s not a simple task. You wrestle with a cumbersome cord or chain mechanism. Then you realise there’s not just one cord but several, complicating the process. It feels almost as if someone designed it to be intentionally frustrating.

After some effort, you finally manage to lower the blind and let out a sigh of relief, only to find that the glare is still there because the blind isn’t angled correctly. So, you stand up again…

If this situation is all too familiar, then you’ll be thrilled to know that there’s a better way.

Motorized blinds for windows give you complete control over your window furnishings. At Watson, we’re proud to offer advanced motorisation solutions for your blinds and awnings, making manual adjustments a thing of the past. Enjoy a modern lifestyle with top brands like Somfy, Acmeda, and Becker.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Motorized blinds for windows offer a range of benefits that make them a valuable addition to any home. Here’s why they might be worth considering:

  • Convenience: With motorised blinds, you can effortlessly open and close your window coverings with the touch of a button or through a smartphone app. This convenience is particularly handy for hard-to-reach windows or individuals with mobility challenges.
  • Energy Efficiency: By programming your motorised blinds to open and close at specific times of the day, you can regulate sunlight entering your home, potentially reducing the need for heating or cooling. This can lead to energy savings over time.
  • Security and Privacy: Motorised blinds can be integrated into your home security system, allowing you to control them remotely. This feature not only enhances privacy but also gives the impression that someone is home, deterring potential intruders.
  • Customisation: Enjoy advanced features such as programmable settings and compatibility with smart home systems and voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. This level of customisation allows for personalised control over your window treatments.
  • Long-Term Value: While motorised blinds may have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional blinds, their convenience, energy efficiency, and added security features can provide long-term value and enhance the overall comfort of your home.

Automatic blinds, also known as motorised blinds, operate using a motorised system that requires power to function. However, whether they need to be plugged in depends on the specific type of motorisation system they use:

  1. Battery-Powered: Some motorised blinds are powered by batteries, eliminating the need for a direct electrical connection. These battery-operated systems offer flexibility in placement and are often straightforward to install without the need for wiring or electrical outlets.

  2. Hardwired: Other motorised blinds require a direct electrical connection and, therefore, need to be plugged in or hardwired to a power source. This type of setup may be more suitable for new construction or renovations where wiring can be integrated into the building’s electrical system.

  3. Solar-Powered: There are also motorised blinds that utilise solar power to recharge their batteries. These blinds harness energy from the sun, making them eco-friendly and eliminating the need for a direct electrical connection. They are particularly well-suited for locations with ample sunlight exposure.

The lifespan of motorised blinds varies based on factors like material quality, usage frequency, and maintenance. Typically, high-quality blinds can last 5 to 10 years or more with proper care. Regular cleaning, lubrication, and addressing issues promptly can help extend their lifespan. Modern motorisation systems often come with warranties covering defects. We use the best automation systems from the likes of Somfy, Becker and Acmeda, and are together able to offer the best in world-class products and services to our customers, including after-sales care.

The cost of motorised blinds can vary depending on factors such as brand, size, and features. On average, motorised blinds typically cost between $300 to $1000 or more per window compared to traditional manual blinds. This price difference accounts for the motorisation system and any additional features such as remote control or smart home integration.

While motorised blinds may have a higher upfront cost, many homeowners find the added convenience and functionality well worth the investment. For a more accurate estimate, we recommend asking us for a free measure & quote.

Electric blinds typically consume very little electricity in daily operation. The energy usage of electric blinds primarily depends on factors such as the type of motorisation system, frequency of use, and size of the blinds.

Overall, electric blinds are considered energy-efficient and consume only a small amount of electricity in comparison to other household appliances. Their energy usage is unlikely to have a significant impact on your electricity bill.

Motorized blinds can help enhance the value of your home effortlessly. With cutting-edge technology at your fingertips, these blinds signify modernity and comfort. Easily controlled via a smartphone app, they offer unparalleled convenience.

Moreover, motorized blinds serve as a shield for your home, safeguarding furniture and floors from sun damage. Especially beneficial for homes with children, they eliminate the risk of accidents associated with traditional corded blinds.

Additionally, these innovative window furnishings contribute to improved energy efficiency, reducing heating and cooling costs even when you’re away from home.

We partner with the world’s top brands including Somfy, Becker, Acmeda and AMP to bring you the best in innovation and quality for our motorised blinds.

A wide range of our blinds can be easily motorised, including roller blinds, double-roller blinds, Roman blinds, Venetian blinds, Honeycomb blinds and more.

Motorised blinds enhance safety in homes, especially for families with children. Watson’s automated blinds do away with cords and chains, removing the danger of children getting tangled in them. This change offers parents and guardians increased security, knowing their home is a safer space for kids.

Motorised blinds significantly contribute to energy savings and sunlight control within a home.

They give homeowners the power to adjust how much heat and light come into their space. In summer, these blinds can be set to block out the sun’s harsh rays, keeping the house cooler. During winter, they can be programmed to let in sunlight, warming up the home naturally.

This ability of motorised blinds to adapt to the seasons not only cuts down on heating and cooling expenses but also enables residents to fine-tune the amount of natural light in their homes all year round.

Motorised blinds elevate home convenience with user-friendly features, voice control, and remote access.

You can adjust your blinds to your preference with simple voice commands or the press of a button. These blinds also incorporate sensors and timers for automatic adjustments, providing ease of use even when you’re not physically present. Additionally, with smartphone or tablet integration, you can control your blinds from anywhere, ensuring your home’s privacy and comfort are always at your fingertips. The advanced system supports centralised control, allowing you to manage various window furnishings such as blinds, shutters, and awnings from a single device, simplifying the overall management of your home’s window coverings.

If the initial blinds were done by us, we can absolutely retrofit your blinds to automate them.
