Motorized Blinds by Qatar Curtains

Traditional curtains look garish and out of place compared to contemporary and modern aesthetic options. With the introduction of home automation systems, curtains have become more than just a fabric covering the windows in your space.

Having sophisticated and technologically advanced window coverings for your living space is essential. That’s why you should consider using motorized blinds. Read on to learn about motorized blinds and their benefits discussed below.

What Are Motorized Blinds?

Home automation has quickly become an integral part of our living experience, with smart devices controlling various elements in our space. Window coverings are no exception, as recently, motorized blinds have gained enough popularity to make a mark on our sustainable lifestyle choices.

Motorized blinds are window shades with a motor fitted inside and operated with a remote. Thus, the lifting function and the opening and closing of shutters are automated. There are many types of motorized blinds, which are discussed in detail below.

What Are the Different Types of Motorized Blinds?

Motorized blinds work with a motor retrofitted to facilitate the automation process in most window coverings. However, motorized blinds have sub-varieties with certain specifications. Here are the types of motorized blinds sold by Qatar Curtains:

Motorized Blinds

  • Battery-Powered Motorized Blinds

Battery-powered are one of the most commonly used motorised blinds due to their simplicity and robustness. The blinds operate with a battery fitted into the tube/structure at the top of the blind, which is then linked to the motor to facilitate movement within them.

Although batteries are frequently replaced after a certain period, the blinds’ design keeps the battery and the wiring hidden to maintain the aesthetics and avoid wear and tear.

  • Hardwired Motorized Blinds

These are usually personalized options, as they allow you to regulate light and ensure the required privacy in a living space. This motorized blind type is powered by your home’s power distribution, connected through hardwiring. Thus, power goes directly to the motor, causing the blind to move up or down. 

  • Solar-Powered Motorized Blinds

Solar-powered blinds use a solar panel system mounted behind the blind, facing the sun. Similar to battery-powered blinds, this panel system connects to a motor that controls the movement of the blind. However, with this blind, placement of the solar panel is key to ensure adequate energy to power the motor.

So, these were the different types of motorized blinds. Customers can choose the one per their requirements to enhance the living experience. Now, let’s look at some of the advantages of motorized blinds discussed below.

What Are the Advantages of Motorized Blinds?

  • Damage Control


Normal blinds with a pulley or a cord mechanism frequently experience wear and tear and jamming issues due to rough usage or mishandling. But this issue is non-existent with motorized blinds as you don’t have to operate them manually.

  • Customizable Presets 

Another advantage of motorized blinds is that you can choose and change presets for the blinds according to your preferences. If there is a perfect spot for the blind to open, you can save that spot on your remote and use the given buttons to open up there!

  • Safer For Kids

Traditional blinds and curtains are often a safety hazard as children can tangle with the cords and extensions hanging out. This problem is solved by motorized blinds, as there are no exterior additions to the blind, removing any obstructions. The kids could play and have fun by controlling the blind up and down using the remote!

These benefits are additions, and motorized blinds have the same advantages as other window coverings, performing their functions as well!
