Smart homes and the idea of a connected house is becoming increasingly popular nowadays; everyone wants a home that can be controlled with the touch of a button. One of the interesting things that you can control with your smart phone is Blinds and Curtains. Thanks to new developments in technology, motorisation of Blinds and Curtains has become more affordable than ever.

Motorised Blinds provide homeowners with several benefits which manual Blinds cannot deliver. With the touch of a button, users can control every Blind in the room or home, individually or simultaneously. This technology eliminates cords and chains on Blinds, which often become tangled or blow in the wind and pose a great risk on the life and safety of children.

Motorised Blinds are available in different options from battery operated, solar powered or mains powered, there is a solution for all windows in your home. They also come with different remotes, wall switches and home apps, making sure that everything can be tailor-made to your requirements. You can motorise almost all Blind types from Roller Blinds, Roman Blinds to Roof blinds. You can even motorise Curtain Tracks. There is no need to buy new Blinds as you may be able to motorise your existing Blinds.

The introduction of the Tahoma Box from Somfy simplifies controlling your home; not only can it control your Blinds but also your lights, plugs, awning and garage door, all from your smart phone. This provides you with an extra element of security as you can give the illusion that your property is occupied at all times.
