Why Buy Motorized Blinds Over Regular Blinds?
  • Motorization helps your blinds & shades last longer because the manual pulling and tugging goes away, and so does the associated wear and tear.

  • Increase child-safety in your home by removing dangerous cords.
  • With a variety of power solutions for motorized window treatments available, you do not need to worry about rewiring your whole house to install!
  • Material and style agnostic means, both vertical and horizontal slats are available for motorization, in styles such as but not limited to aluminum, faux and genuine wood and the works.

FAQS

There are many good light-blocking shade options on the market. Both blackout cellular shades and blackout roller shades are great options for motorization. Cellular shades have a unique honeycomb structure which makes the air pockets an excellent insulator for both heat and sound. Blackout roller shades offer maximum light and heat control. They offer slightly less insulation than cellular shades but are an excellent choice for large areas that get a lot of sunlight.

Motorized window shade batteries last anywhere from six months to an entire year. Your individual experience will depend on a number of factors: the type of battery, how new the batteries are, how often you open and close the shades, and the size of the window treatment. Because most rechargeable batteries wear down some over time, older batteries may need to be recharged more often than when they’re brand new.

You can make your home work for you using motorized window treatments, controlling natural light and privacy in your home at the touch of a button. Although the benefits of motorized window treatments are innumerable, here are a few of our favorites: Motorization decreases the wear on your blinds—no uneven pulling or hurried tugging on the lift mechanisms when you’re in a hurry or your hands are full. It allows you to lower your shades with ease, via the push of a button, remote control, or even a programmed schedule, so you don’t have to do anything at all. Motorized window coverings can be connected to the smartphone and smart home technology that you already use in your daily life.

Battery-powered motorized blinds are a great option when wiring or solar options are not feasible. There are several options for using battery-operated motorized blinds. The first is built-in rechargeable batteries. This means that the battery pack is built into the window covering itself and is usually hidden out of sight. The battery charge can usually last anywhere from 6-12 months on a charge and take just a handful of hours to recharge fully. There are also external batteries, in both rechargeable and non-rechargeable options.

There are several great power options for motorized blinds and shades. The most common power options are hard-wired, battery, or solar. Hard-wired power can come in two forms: either having an electrician run wires through the walls to connect each window covering to your home’s main electrical system, or simply running the power cord from the window coverings to the nearest outlet. Battery power is available in three forms: built-in rechargeable batteries, external non-rechargeable, or external rechargeable batteries. The last option is solar power, which is suitable for windows that get 6 or more hours of direct sunlight per day. Most solar-powered shades have enough power to open and close once daily.

There are two types of hard-wired motorized shades: running wires through the walls of your home, or running a power cord from the window covering to the nearest outlet. Running wires through the walls of your home to connect to your home’s main electrical system is best done at the time your home is built or during a substantial renovation, although it is possible in some cases to wire motorized shades as a stand-alone project. This is a project for a qualified electrician and probably not a good idea to try yourself. The second option is running a power cord from the window covering to the nearest outlet. This option may not look as neat, since there will be power cords running from each motorized shade to a nearby outlet; however, it can be done yourself since no wiring is required.

There are several factors to consider when looking at the price of motorized shades. The first is window treatment styles – many types of blinds, shades, and even shutters can be motorized. The price of the window treatments themselves will impact the cost of the overall project. The second factor is the motorization technology. 3 Blind Mice is your motorization specialist for QMotion, Somfy, Lutron, Graber, and Mechoshade motorized blinds and shades.
