Why Motorised Blinds?

Electric car windows, remote control TVs, automatic garage doors, these days we take a lot of these modern conveniences for granted, when in the past they may have been considered a luxury.

Motorisation is the modern ways for families, schools and businesses to operate their blinds and awnings, and is fast becoming a standard option not only reserved for exclusive hotel rooms!

When Is It Best to Motorise?

Large size blinds and awnings – Save your arms! Let the motor do the work. With motorisation, we can cover much larger sizes.

Difficult access– Have you got a window that can’t be reached even with a long handle? You can with a wireless remote! We can motorise the blind and shade those hard to reach skylight and stairwell windows.
Frequent Use – Putting your blinds up every morning and down every night? – Motorised blinds can have timers attached to automate them further.

Peace of Mind – Campbell & Heeps can add a range of sensors to your motorised awnings to retract in high winds or rain, this gives you piece of mind your awnings are safe when you are away from home.
Chain Free – Campbell & Heeps take your safety and that of your family very seriously. We cannot recommend highly enough putting the ‘chain free’ motorised roller blinds in areas where young children live and play.

How Do I Operate My Motorised Blinds?

Motorised blinds can be easily operated using any of the following options:

  • Hardwired Switch fixed to the wall
  • Free- to move Wireless remote control
  • Connect to CBUS system
  • Automated timers and sensors

How Much Does It Cost?

Less than you’d think!

The cost of automation for blinds and awnings has actually come down a lot in recent years! The motors themselves now cost hundreds not thousands per blind.

Saying this, it is an investment in a lifestyle product. Be wary of very cheap motorised blinds, as there has been an influx of poor quality cheap motors being imported.

If you are considering motorisation of your blinds ensure they come with the best warranties and that the manufacturers are going to be around for long enough to service them!

At Campbell & Heeps, we genuinely believe the budget spend on motorised blinds will be well appreciated in future years to come off easy to use blinds!

We only use motors from Somfy or Becker motors, both are European brands with 5-year warranties.
