How Do Automatic Blinds Work and Why Do You Need Them?

What if you could close the blinds and take a nap, all without leaving the bed?

With automatic blinds, this blend of luxury and convenience is quite easy. However, many people don't know how automatic blinds work, much less why they should buy them.

Keep reading to get all of the info you need about motorized blinds.

How Do Automatic Blinds Work?

Automatic blinds are installed with a small motor. This allows you to open or close the blinds via remote control or even automatically (you can program them for special events).

That makes these blinds very easy to control: if you can use a TV, you can use these blinds. And you have many choices when it comes to powering the motorized blinds.

How Are They Powered?

The most common (and most simple) option for powering motorized blinds is via battery.

However, we recommend getting them hard wired in. This requires an electrician but means that you’ll never need to worry about replacing the batteries in years to come.

What Are the Advantages of Automatic Blinds?

Now you know how the blinds work and how to power them. There is still a bigger question, though: why should you install these for your home?

The first advantage is comfort and convenience. Let's face it: everyone has memories of struggling to open and close the blinds manually, and automatic blinds remove that struggle entirely.

And you no longer have to walk over to the blinds to open or close them. That is convenient for everything from a midday nap to dimming the lights and watching a movie.

These blinds also provide instant privacy with the touch of a button. That makes them a great choice for areas such as bedrooms and bathrooms, where you would want to have natural lighting at some times and privacy at other times.

One thing that surprises homeowners is that an automated system will make your shades actually last longer. This is because the automated system provides less wear and tear than manually pulling to open and close the blinds.

Finally, automatic blinds integrate well with our increasingly automated homes. In an age where you can ask for your favorite songs by name and control your locks with your phone, why are you still walking all the way to the blinds to close them?
