Virtually any type of blind, awning or shutter can be made motorised and once the motor is fitted, the range of control options is extensive.

Motorisation is ideal for external blinds and shutters as these can then be operated from within the comfort of your home by simply pressing a switch.

Most external blinds and shutters use 240V AC motors which are usually fully contained in the hardware of the blind and therefore not visible.

Once the motor is installed, it is possible to operate a single blind, groups of blinds or all blinds, depending on the controls chosen and the set-up.

The most common control is a radio controlled handset or (wireless) switch which sends the signal to the motor. Although wired switches, key switches and automatic operation via timers, sun and wind sensors, vibration sensors or rain sensors are also available.

You can also link blinds and shutters to lighting, home cinema, security and other home automation systems.

Motorisation involves specialist manufacturing and installation so make sure you always use a BBSA member.
