Have you thought about investing in automated blinds? If not, this article will be providing you with some compelling reasons to do so. Read on to discover how your home or workplace could benefit from the installation of automated blinds.

Safety & Security

Most motorised blinds are cordless these days, which takes out the added danger-particularly to younger kids and pets-presented by corded blinds. This makes electric blinds a safer option for the family home.

As well as the importance of safety there is also the security aspect to consider. If you have motorised blinds you can allow your household to give off the impression that someone is home, even if they are not. This can be especially important if you are away on holiday and criminals could be snooping around. The technique that you can do, when away, is to place your blinds on a timer so they change after a certain amount of time, naturally, as if there is someone in the building.


It doesn’t matter if we are talking about your home or place of work, automated blinds allow you a certain level of convenience you do not get with the traditional alternative. This has been an applicable statement for quite some time, but even more so due to recent advancements in home automation, making the possibilities even smarter, and as a result, even more convenient!

You can activate your blinds from the comfort of a nearby area with a remote, sure, but you can also programme them to come on at certain times. Thanks to modern-day technology, through the use of an app on a smartphone, all this can be done with ease. It will save you having to remember to open and close them at certain times throughout the day, giving you more time to get on with other things.

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency is of course very important. Not only does it help the environment by making more energy-conscious decisions when choosing to use a certain product, but it can also save money-great for our business or home. You can more accurately and quickly activate your blinds into action to maximise energy efficiency then you could with electric blinds, and you can even go a step further by purchasing a pair that reacts to a sensor so they can do their thing at the time it most makes sense to-all by themselves!

Protect Your Funiture, Floors & More

Sometimes you could be out, or even just in another area of the house, and not realise that the sun is streaming through the window while a blind remains open. Although it can be nice to soak up the sun rays at times, over a period it can cause damage to the colouring of walls, art, sofas and other items of furniture. Having an automated blind that can prevent this from happening and could save you money, as you will not have to replace items after they have been ruined by a constant stream of harsh light.

There sure are some good reasons for your home or place of work to have a pair of electronic blinds installed. Have a look at what options are available, taking into account style and material types, as well as considering a bespoke automated blind service so you can find the perfect fit for your home or workspace.
