They were once a novelty, but with the advent of smart home technology, motorized blinds are both more convenient and more popular than ever in Milton. If you are thinking of getting them, you should know how they work, what your options are for controlling them, and some other important details. If you prefer a more hands-on approach, you can contact us now to book an in-home consultation with one of our design experts to see firsthand what your options could look like in your space.

What Are Motorized Blinds?
Motorized blinds are those blinds where the opening and closing mechanism is attached to a small motor which can open or close them for you. Once you have a motorized blind, you can attach or connect them to a switch, a remote, or some kind of smart home device which then controls the blinds for you.
How Do Motorized Blinds Work?
Motorized blinds might work in one of two ways:
- Remote control: We connect a remote control to your blind’s motor. This allows you to raise or lower the blinds with just the push of a button.
- Smart blinds: These are automatic blind systems powered by a smart home system. Depending on your system, you may be able to set your blinds by a timer, or to voice control your blinds to raise or lower them.
What Remote Control Options Are Available with Motorized Window Coverings?
We have a wide range of system options available with our motorized blinds, including:
- Alexa connections through BLISS
- Google connections with BLISS
- Somfy MyLink™
We also offer TaHoma connections including Alarmcom, Amazon Alexa, Philips Hue, RTI RTS, Savant, SmartThings, URC, and more.
Why Choose Motorized Blinds?
Motorized blinds can make your life much more convenient. They enable you to spend less time fussing with blinds. Those who have disabilities that prevent them from using blinds or those who are aging in their home and want to spare themselves the trouble of opening and closing their blinds could all benefit from motorization.
