Motorised Blinds……..not as expensive as you may think!


£99 to have your roller blind remote control operated ! Told you motorised blinds are not as expensive as you think.

With a remote handset that resembles a phone from a certain fruit inspired smartphone manufacturer and no ugly battery packs to hide as the batteries are built into the motor so can not be seen.

The blind is charged in the same way as you charge your phone, just plug the charger into the blind and remove it when it is fully charged.

Everything nowadays is remote control and the blind trade has had to come up with products that fit into our modern lifestyle and with motorised blinds they certainly have achieved that.

For motorised blinds that fit seamlessly into our modern lifestyle then you need Luxaflex Powerview.

Powerview motorised blinds not only work with the very stylish pebble remote controls, but can also be controlled from your tablet and your smartphone from anywhere in the world. Can you imagine being able to open your children’s blinds in the school holidays while you are sat at your desk! Brilliant.

Now with the launch of their new hub 2.0 you can even have your blinds voice activated via Alexa. (Call into our showroom and you can talk to our blinds!)

They can also be programmed to move to set positions at certain times of day, so can be a brilliant security measure while you are away on holiday.

We installed a Powerview motorised blind for a client a couple of weeks ago where the top part of the blind was left open at night, so he still had privacy when going to bed, but could lie in bed and star gaze until he fell asleep. Then the blind was programmed to close fully at 2.30am so he wasn’t woken by the morning sun.

Motorised blinds really do enhance people’s lives.

Every now and again we install blinds that truly make a difference to people’s lives.

We installed a motorised  blind in a bedroom for a gentleman who was bed bound, so he had to rely on his carers to open and close his curtains. The remote controlled blind meant for the first time in years he could control the light entering his room himself.

This may only seem small to you and I but it gave him a little independence that he hadn’t had for so long. This was the only time I can remember that we have installed a blind that made a customer cry (for the right reasons).

So motorised blinds can do much more than you think, so how will you use yours?
