Motorised blinds are fast becoming a regular enquiry for us here at Amanda for Blinds. With everything at the touch of a button, why wouldn’t blinds be the next logical step?

Smart homes are shaping up to be the future of the next generation. But if you find smart homes a little intimidating, we’ve tried to offer a simplified starting point to ease you into “the future”.

Easy to Use

Our basic motorisation option is currently available for roller blinds and venetian blinds. It includes a single channel remote control and a charger (similar to a phone charger). This simply plugs into the blind whilst up at the window and gives you around 6 months usage on a full charge (5-6 hours). This system does not connect to your smart phone or tablet, but is perfect for elderly or disabled people who have trouble using standard blind controls or reaching the window. It’s even just a neat little feature for one or two windows in your home, to show off to your friends and family.

The basic motorised upgrade is available for an extra £100 per roller blind, and £150 per venetian blind on top of the blind price. This price includes 1 remote & 1 charger.

Smart Home

Our upgraded motorised blinds system can be fully optimised to be used in conjunction with a smart phone or tablet. This system is available on roller blinds, wooden & aluminium venetian blinds at the moment. It comes with a remote and charger as the standard system does, but also allows the smart home connectivity.

For venetian blinds, you do need to purchase a Somfy TaHoma Smart Home Hub (if you don’t already own one). You can buy this from us for £250 or you can purchase it online yourself. For roller blinds, we have a separate hub called Powershade, this is £150.

Having the Somfy TaHoma allows you to control your motorised blinds with voice control & Alexa. This is the game changer.

The price of this extended system is an extra £150 per blind to motorise venetian blinds and then the purchase of the Somfy TaHoma mentioned above. This is a one-off purchase so allows you to add as many blinds as you need.
