Automation – Making Life Easier with Motorised Roller Blinds

Looking for convenience and ease of use? Motorised roller blinds mean that you can bring the outdoors in (or block it out) with either the touch of a button or the use of state-of-the-art sensor technology. This kind of next-level thinking and design means that your motorised roller indoor or outdoor blinds will assist in lifting your home into the upper echelons of design and style.

Automated Blinds for Brisbane, Logan, Gold Coast and Surrounds

Automated blinds and awnings allow you to make the most of your home by keeping it warmer in winter and cooler in summer. The automation technology involved increases the liveability (and property value) of your home by allowing you to have more control over both aesthetics and temperature. These products also help to protect your home from would-be intruders looking for an opportunistic entry – the automation feature will give your home the appearance of being occupied year-round.

Blinds Plus Awnings and Shutters proudly present a wide range of motorised roller blind products.

Automated Awnings from Blinds Plus Awnings and Shutters

Eolis Wind Sensor

When looking for motorised outdoor blinds, awnings are an excellent solution. The Eolis Wind Sensor is battery powered and wireless, meaning you can retract your awning based on wind levels. Automatic retraction during high wind will prevent damage to your system, even if you’re not home! This machinery detects horizontal, vertical and lateral movement via threshold setting. It offers high performance, convenience and all the worry-less freedom that comes with a wireless solution.

Sunis External Sun Sensor

If you are considering motorised outdoor blinds, consider these awnings as a stellar option, perfectly designed to protect your outdoor furniture as well as your windows and doors. This system is completely autonomous and can also be used via wireless control. You can easily deactivate the system if and when required. It’s battery-free, using a photovoltaic cell to power it up. Every hour, a failsafe signal is sent to the awning to tell it to retract if the sensor is not functioning properly. This is a fantastic option for those looking for ease of use and convenience.

Soliris Sun and Wind Sensor

This little beauty automatically controls your motorised outdoor products based on current weather conditions – meaning it’s perfect for those who’d like to ‘set and forget.’ When powerful winds are blowing, the awning automatically retracts in order to protect it from damage. This system can communicate with multiple awnings via wireless technology, making it a convenient and reliable solution. Installation is quick and easy – and it can be installed after the original awning has been constructed.

Remotes for Motorised Outdoor Blinds and Awnings

Smoove Wireless Wall Remote

The wall switch is incredibly easy to install and use. There is a low battery indicator that will ensure your unit is always primed and ready to go.
