Motorized electric blinds are our speciality and we have achieved Somfy Expert status. These blinds open and close effortlessly. All types of blinds can be motorized, for example roller blinds can raise and lower while venetian blinds can tilt as well.
Motorized blinds can be operated in many ways for example radio remote control, integration with home automation systems, timers or based on the weather outside such as the direction of the sun.
Motorized blinds can get power from electric mains power, house solar, standard AA batteries or rechargable batteries.
