How expensive are electric blinds?

There is a common myth that electric blinds are too expensive. While this might have been the case a few years ago, today electric blinds are becoming significantly affordable. Obviously, you would pay extra for electric blinds but the practical benefits of electric blinds are worth the additional cost.

How do electric roller blinds work?

There are two options to operate electric blinds - wand control switch or remote control. Electric blinds operated by a wand control raise and lower the blind with switch buttons. The wand hangs neatly on the side of the blind, replacing unnecessary chains or cords. Our wand operated blinds come with eight standard AA batteries that will last you 6-12 months.

The remote control option gives you full control over the blind. A single remote control can operate up to five blinds separately or simultaneously. If you choose blinds with a remote control, the motor comes with a lithium rechargeable battery.
