A Guide to Automated Outdoor Blinds

Last updated on



Once considered a high-end home accessory only found in luxurious properties, due to their increasing affordability, convenience and fast installation process, electric or automated outdoor blinds are fast becoming a staple item across Perth homes and businesses. Nu Style Shutters are Perth’s favourite manufacturer and installer of high quality, yet affordable automated outdoor blinds. Read on to learn all about motorised outdoor blinds and how easy it can be to purchase, install and use them in your home.

What Are Motorised Outdoor Blinds?

Motorised blinds are electronically controlled blinds that can be raised or lowered without having to use a manual chain or rope system. They’re usually operated by a remote control, wall switch, sensor, smartphone, tablet or in-home automation system.

How Do They Work?

Installed with a small motor included, the easiest and most common option for powering automated blinds is via battery. However, they can also be hard wired in. This requires an electrician but means that you’ll never need to worry about replacing flat batteries.

Why Should You Choose Motorised Blinds?

They Are Child Safe – while all modern non-motorised blinds in Australia should comply with international child safety regulations, motorised blinds completely eliminate the need for hazardous chains, ropes, wands or cords altogether, making them the most child safe option for your home.

The Offer Convenience – If you know bad weather is on the way, and want to keep your outdoor furniture dry, automatically close your outdoor window treatments without having to get off the couch, or even better, do it remotely form wherever you may be at the touch of a button on your smartphone. Also handy for people with limited strength or mobility who often struggle to open and close the blinds manually, automatic blinds remove that struggle entirely.

They Add a Modern and Stylish Finishing Touch to You Space – By eliminating the need for chains, ropes, wands or cords, this will give your outdoor blinds a sleek, simple and uniform appearance. Available in a range of colours, styles and designs, they make a stylish addition to your home, as well allowing you to control the amount of light and privacy let in at the touch of a button.

They Add Value – Automated outdoor blinds are considered luxury, so they are a wise investment that will add significant value to your property. Outdoor living spaces are at the top of almost every home-buyers wish list, and an outdoor living and entertaining space that can be used all year round simply by touching a button will up the luxe factor and have buyers battling over it.

They’re Ideal for Both Residential or Commercial Properties – Automating manual tasks such as opening and closing blinds makes life simpler and more convenient, so whether they are for a residential backyard, shared business space, beer garden or café, automated blinds are a welcome choice for both home and work.

They Last Longer – One benefit that might be surprising, is that automated systems will make your outdoor blinds last longer. How? An automated system provides less wear and tear than manually pulling to open and close the blinds.
