Why our customers love Electric blinds

Three delighted customers share their own reasons for choosing Electric blinds and how our innovative range has transformed their homes and lifestyle.

1. An effortless solution

Lots of our customers tell us it’s the freedom and convenience that they love most about battery powered Electric blinds.

With our handy motorised control system you can you can open and close all your Electric blinds at once with just the touch of a button.

2. Perfect for families

A bustling family home certainly comes with its challenges, and if you have young children or pets you’ll know that they are not always the perfect partners for blinds with operating chains!

Electric blinds offer a great child-friendly solution. With the motor hidden inside the headrail of the blind and wirelessly connected to an remote control or your smart device, everything is neat and tidy, and there’s no operating chains to worry about.

3. Boost your home security with timers

Pairing your Electric blinds to a Somfy hub lets you control your blinds with ease whether you’re at home, or travelling abroad. It’s an additional accessory that links your blinds to a smart home device, as well as your remote control.

With the Somfy hub, you’ll benefit from the 'scenarios' or timer function, a clever tool that lets you set your blinds to automatically open and close at different times of day.

Programming your blinds to lower at night will stop your home looking empty when you’re away.

5. Master your sleep routine

There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to fall asleep in a room that’s not quite dark, or being jolted awake by your noisy alarm clock.

When it’s time to wake up, setting your Electric blinds to gradually open in the morning will let you rise slowly and naturally.
