Motorized shades are the window covering industry’s answer to the demand to make everything in homes easier and more convenient. As their name implies, motorized shades raise and lower via a motor, which means you don’t have to fuss with lift cords, chains, or even manual cordless solutions. Instead, all you must do is press a single button to raise or lower one, two, three, or even rows of shades in seconds. After all, if you can turn on and off appliances, televisions, computers, and light switches all from one place in your home, why not be able to operate your shades the same way?

Smart homes that are partially or fully automated are becoming a reality for more and more homeowners. Previously limited to only the super-rich or science-fiction stories, homes with automation and hands free convenience is within reach for many families. Everything from refrigerators and dishwashers to thermostats and sprinkler systems is programmable or capable of being operated from afar.

Blindster is proud to offer several varieties of motorized shades, and we believe they’re the perfect options for homeowners who value any of these perks in their window coverings.

Convenience

Operate motorized shades one at a time or in groups

Homes with several large windows in multiple rooms need large window coverings. And those large blinds or shades may need to be adjusted multiple times per day to get just the right lighting. With motorized shades, you don’t have to manually raise or lower shade after shade. That means no more climbing ladders or stepping over and around furniture. Just push a button and you’re done!

Practicality

Remote controls have programmable channels for one or more shades

Motorized shades are perfect for homes, but they also make sense for business owners—especially those with large offices or warehouses with many windows. Manually changing the positions of a dozen or more shades every day is a waste of your time and energy. Our motorized shades come with remotes that can be programmed to control up to 15 separate shades, making it easy to raise an entire office-full of window coverings in the morning or lower them in the evening.

Some motorized shades can be programmed to raise and lower at certain times of day. That means you’ll never have to worry about leaving your shades when you’re raised or when your children are at home.
