5 Benefits of Automatic Blinds

If you are currently planning to invest in new blinds for your home, you may not have considered installing an automatic blind system. Automatic blinds offer many benefits. Below is a guide to 5 advantages that an automatic blind system can bring to your home.


Automatic blinds operate using an electric motor. The electric motor means you no longer have to exert energy pulling on a cord to raise or lower your blinds. In fact, because the automatic blind system is attached to a computer, you can operate your blinds from the comfort of your sofa by just clicking a button on a remote control.


Because traditional manual blinds are operated using long cords which dangle to the floor, they can present a serious choke hazard to small babies and pets. Automatic blinds are self-contained and remote controlled and so do not feature these cords. This reduces the risk of choking and improves safety levels in your home.


Automatic blinds can also be programmed to open and close when you are not around. Just enter the times you wish the blinds to operate and leave the rest to the electric motor. This feature allows you to simulate the presence of someone in your home when you are away for an extended period of time, helping to deter thieves who are looking for signs that a property is unoccupied.

Sun protection

Intense sunlight quickly damages soft furnishings and floors. An automatic blind system can be programmed to close during the brightest parts of the day, even if you are out of the house. This automated programme will help to prevent the furniture and floors in your home from becoming faded. 

Optimal light exposure

Automatic blinds can also be programmed to react to the ambient outdoor light levels, meaning that your blinds will open and close in response to the climatic and seasonal conditions outside. For instance, on long sunny days, the blinds may stay partially closed in order to prevent your home from becoming too bright and hot, while on darker and cooler days, the blinds will open fully to allow the maximum amount of light into your property.
