How do you know when it’s time to go motorized? Sure it seems fancy and futuristic, but today’s technology will give you full control and convenience you never knew you could have.
Think about your garage door. Before motorized garage door openers, a person had to get out of their car and raise the door by hand. And televisions – do you remember the days when you had to walk across the room to adjust the set?
Remote controls bring added convenience that just make life a little easier. Think about being able to adjust all of the blinds in a room with the push of the button. Now’s the perfect time to upgrade.
When To Go Motorized:
Hard to reach windows
Traditional corded blinds in high or hard to reach windows require long, unsightly cords that hang all the way down to arm’s reach. Get a sleeker look and easier operation with motorized blinds.
Windows behind furniture
Window cords behind furniture can be difficult or even impossible to operate. Raise and lower these blinds or shades effortlessly with the programmable remote control.
Homes with small children or pets
Window cords can be a strangulation hazard for children and pets. If you have little ones running around, motorized or cordless blinds are recommended.
If you’ve lost strength or dexterity
Many factors can make it difficult for some to perform physically strenuous tasks. With a motorized blind, anyone can raise or lower it without having to support the weight of the shade on a cord.
Homes with many windows
Adjusting a room full of blinds by hand can be a lot of work. The programmable remote can adjust an unlimited number of blinds simultaneously, or five groups of blinds independently.
All motorized window coverings from Bali are equipped with Somfy Motors – the most reliable, durable motors on the market. The motor is powered by a long lasting lithium battery wand, so no costly hard-wiring is necessary. To install, just load batteries, mount the wand to the window frame, install your shade as normal and connect the wand to the shade. It’s that easy.
Shades can be raised or lowered with a radio frequency remote that works from virtually anywhere in your house. Choose a single channel remote to operate one shade or one group of shades simultaneously, or a five channel remote if you’d like to operate 5 shades (or groups of shades) independently.
The Somfy remote is fully programmable. The tech geek in your life will have fun setting it up, but the programming steps are simple enough for anyone to follow. The MY button on the remote can be programmed to remember your favorite position every time. Just press the button and it’ll automatically adjust. Learn more about how to program your remote.
