Types of Lift Controls
Blinds and shades can be segregated based on their different lift options. There are corded blinds which have occupied the market for a long time. They come with strings or cords that need to be pulled to raise and lower the blinds. They lost a part of the market when cordless blinds entered the market. As the name suggests, these blinds did away with cords and instead could be operated by pushing or pulling the shade up and down by hand. Soon cordless blinds came to be challenged by the powerful motorized blinds. Also known as ‘Remote Controlled Blinds’, these window treatments have motors built in them which move the blinds up and down.
Motorized Control & Use of Remote Control
Pre-Scheduling of Blinds
The motorized shades are operated with the help of handheld remotes. These can be used from anywhere in the house. They can be used to operate a single-blind or even a group of blinds for greater convenience. You no longer have to run around the house pulling the blinds up and down at different times of the day. You can do so from the comfort of your couch or bed. The best news is, these blinds can even be pre-programmed and pre-scheduled to operate independently by themselves. For example, if you want the blinds to be up by 7:00 in the morning, you can schedule them to rise by that time every morning. Similarly, once the sun goes down you would want the blinds to be down to preserve your privacy. Some rooms receive a lot of sunlight at particular times of the day and you would want the blinds to be closed to prevent heat gain. You can set the timer accordingly. Doing this helps in preserving energy, prevent heat loss and gain and also enhances the security of your home in your absence. Motorized blinds can also be integrated into your home automation system which means that they can be operated through voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home and also from your smart devices from anywhere in the world. Motorized blinds have made the operation of window treatments easy and hassle-free. A press of a button on your remote or your smartphone and you can move your blinds up and down.
