Motorised Conservatory Blinds and Window Blinds

Blind Technique gives you the option of remote control motorisation across our entire range or conservatory blinds and window blinds. Each blind has a neatly concealed motor that is either battery or mains powered. We offer high-quality Somfy motors as well as more affordable options to suit your budget. Control your blinds via remote control or from your smartphone or tablet anywhere in the world!

Why should I choose Motorised Blinds?

  • Motorised blinds give you ultimate control of your light and shade as well as privacy and security at the push of a button
  • Battery technology has improved to offer motorisation to all windows regardless of electrical cabling
  • Modern smart home technology allows you to control your blinds from wherever you are adding peace of mind when you are not home
  • Blinds can be individually controlled and operated via a wall-mounted switch or a remote control handset, or even programmed to operate at certain times or according to information from a sun and heat sensor
  • Where there are multiple blinds, such as in a conservatory, the blinds can either be operated individually, all together or separated into different groups, known as zoning
  • Motorisation is particularly useful for roof blinds and blinds that are difficult to reach and/or operate

If you are looking for motorised conservatory and window blinds then here at Blind Technique we will be able to help you. We have many years of experience working with our high-quality motor suppliers and offer the latest innovative products that are now available due to the improvement in technology.

Sonesse™ motors for internal blinds

These motors, designed for internal window blinds, are quieter than operating the blind manually and you will hardly hear them moving. The blinds can be operated using RTS technology, basically radio waves, via a wall-mounted switch or battery-operated remote control. The blind will be programmed to stop in the fully open and fully closed position and can be stopped at any position using the 'My" button. Additionally, this button can be programmed to position the blind to your favourite position.

New wirefree™ motorisation

Now you no longer need a mains electrical supply to each motorised blind. WireFree™ is a battery-operated motor meaning it is quick to install with no damage to your décor or requirement for an electrician. This latest innovation gives you a motor with very low power consumption, only using what is required, and only being used when the blind is operated to maximise battery life. You also have the option of using rechargeable batteries and can choose a reloadable battery wand so that you can replace or recharge the batteries yourself when required.

How to control your motorised conservatory and window blinds

Remote control handsets

The remote control is radio wave operated and so can be controlled from practically anywhere in your home. Having a remote control, similar to that of your television, means there are no wires between the motor and the controller, and you are able to operate your blinds from the comfort of your armchair. Depending on the handset, you are either able to operate one single-blind, a group of blinds together, or several blinds individually.

Smart Home Integration

Our Somfy and Louvolite motors also come with the option of a home hub which enables you to control your blinds via an App on your phone or tablet. This is a fantastic option that can replace or complement your remote control and be operated from literally anywhere in the World! Perfect for adding a layer of security when you are away from home and you can even add a smart plug to the hub too.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are motorised blinds safe for children and pets?

    Yes, motorised blinds are safe for children and pets. With no cords to become entangled in, motorised blinds are actually the safest option for children and pets. Cords and chains need to be the required length (1.5 metres from the ground) per child safety laws. Sometimes this can be a hindrance to petite adults, especially if the blind is high up, or there's something in the way, such as a sink or some other furniture that can't be moved. Motorised blinds will solve that problem.

  • Can any blind be motorised?

    The majority of blinds, including ones already installed, can be motorised. Personally, we don't recommend motorisation for angled conservatory blinds. It can be done, but tends to be more trouble than it's worth!

  • REALLY impressed by every aspect of our order with Blind Technique. The staff were, without exception, readily accessible (a big plus these days), friendly, engaged, and professional. We knew what was going on at every stage and the final outcome is superb; the plantation blinds look and feel well made and have added very positively to the look of the front of our house.

    Great Customer Service
  • Very pleased with all aspects of job. Would like to commend Wayne and his team for their efforts. The blinds look great and the quality is excellent.

I was looking for some particular blinds for my living room and Jon understood exactly what i was looking for! Very impressed, I already recommended this place to all my neighbours :)    

    Recommended to my neighbours!
  • Blind Technique did a superb job on the roof blinds for my conservatory. They fit the difficult shape exactly and are easy to draw open or shut. They are a replacement for the blinds the company did years ago, which I have been very pleased with, and I am very happy with the new ones.
