At Alfresco Blinds Co we love Motorisation! Whether you’re looking for motorised indoor blinds or motorised outdoor blinds, we offer motorisation on a wide range of products, including:

Motorisation will make your installation effortless to use and add that touch of luxury you may have been looking for.

Here's why we love Motorised Blinds

Motors have now been developed to incorporate Sun sensors and wind/rain sensors that react instantly to weather conditions. Motorised outdoor blinds are automatically deployed when the sun strikes the building facade; while wind and rain sensors can ensure external shades are retracted when the weather turns unpleasant to protect your motorised outdoor blinds from damage.

Motorisation is a convenient feature for the elderly and people with mobility limitations as it enables them to operate heavy blinds by a remote with ease and enables the operation of blinds on high or difficult to reach windows. Motorisation offers the ultimate in convenient operation.

Motorised blinds are the most child-safe option for window coverings as they eliminate the presence of manually operated cords or chains which can be hazardous to young children.

Motorisation also eliminates the physical wear and tear caused through manual operation and treatment of blinds. Once installed, the motors have internal top and bottom limits set to ensure that blinds will never exceed their intended position.

Motorisation offers the convenience of operating single or multiple blinds in unison with the use of various remotes. Just take a look at some of the motorized roller blind videos below.

FAQ's about Motorised Blinds & Awnings

How are motorised blinds powered?

Motorised blinds can be powered in two ways:
- Connected to electricity: This can be done wirelessly or by wires. They can be solar-powered or use your standard electricity as the power source.
- Connected to a rechargeable lithium-ion battery: A wireless system, that uses an internet connection for control. This doesn’t require an electrician for wiring.

Are motorised blinds worth it?

Motorised blinds are worth the investment. They may come with an upfront cost, but they add value to any home when it comes to selling your property one day. They also help reduce your insulation costs. In fact, some homeowners claim they recover their outlay expenses in just a few years.

Can existing blinds be motorised?

The short answer is ‘no’-existing blinds can’t be motorised. Motorised blinds and their technology form a cohesive unit. They can’t be separated. In other words, the motor is not separate from the blind, but is built into the fabric and can’t be added to existing installations.
