FAQ for Motorized Blinds

How do motorized blinds work?
Motorized blinds (also known as smart blinds, automatic/automated blinds, or electric blinds) include a small motor that gently turns the shaft of the window covering when you use the remote control. With the touch of a button, you can raise or reduce your blinds (and in the case of horizontal blinds, will also let you tilt the slats).
Motorized blinds provide the maximum in ease and safety while maintaining a clean/streamlined appearance – no dangling cables, chains, or wands.
How does the remote control work?
To control your motorized blinds, you will need at least one remote, and we normally recommend one remote per room.

The majority of remotes allow you to raise or reduce your blinds (either all the way up or down, or to any point in between). You can also opt to raise or lower all blinds operated by the same remote at the same time, or to operate each blind independently. Horizontal blind remote controllers often allow you to tilt the slats as well.

How much do motorized blinds cost?
The price of motorized blinds varies depending on the type of window blind you select. Remember that most motorized blinds may be operated by a single remote control, so you may only need one remote control per room.

Over the last few years, motorized blinds have grown in popularity. While there is an additional expense, motorization has several significant advantages in terms of ease, kid safety, a clean appearance (no dangling cords), and accessibility (motorized blinds are a great solution for large or hard-to-reach windows).

Are motorized blinds the right choice for me?
Depending on your needs, motorized blinds may make your life easier (and a lot safer).

Motorized blinds let you raise and lower your blinds at the touch of a button. You can control 1-5 blinds at the same time (with a multi-channel remote). Motorized blinds are ideal for large or difficult-to-reach windows and skylights, and they are simple to use for the elderly or disabled. Because there are no dangling cords, motorized blinds are safer for children and pets. Motorized blinds add a clean, streamlined look to your room (no cords, chains or wands to get in the way).

What are smart blinds?
People often use the term “smart blinds” to mean “motorized blinds” or “automatic blinds.” True smart blinds, on the other hand, don’t just let you control your blinds with a remote. Most smart blinds can be controlled by an app on your phone, and you can set timers or schedules to control when your blinds open and close. More and more smart blinds work with smart home systems and voice assistants like Alexa and Google Home.
How Are Motorized Blinds Powered?
All of Wholesale Blind Factory’s motorized blinds run on batteries, so there’s no need to hardwire them. They also come with a charger so you can charge them as needed once or twice a year. This makes it easy to be installed. Each set of electric blinds will say what kind of power is used. Most electric blinds can go without charging for 6-12 months. For details, please look at the product information for each blind.
How Long Do Batteries Last in Motorized Blinds?
The majority of our motorized blinds come with rechargeable batteries that can last anywhere from six to twelve months on a single charge, depending on how often you use them. Depending on how frequently you use them, you can charge them once or twice a year with the chargers included in the kit. For more information about the power consumption, you can check the product details or contact us for information.
How Long Do Motorized Blinds Last?
Motorized blinds are incredibly reliable and can last far longer than traditional shades or blinds because there is no need for forceful tugging, no cords for pets or children to play with, and no need to continually straighten slats. Depending on use and upkeep, the average window treatment can last 3-10 years. Motorized blinds typically last 5-10 years, depending on usage.

The frequency with which you use your blinds or shades might also have an effect on their longevity. If they’re battery-powered, the battery will need to be replaced on a regular basis, but electric motors have several possibilities as well.

Are Motorized Blinds Loud?
We make sure that the electric blinds we offer have top-quality motors. Each product has different sound levels that vary depending on each model but Wholesale Blind Factory offers motorized blinds with minimal noise. The loudest noise you can hear will be a soft hum that easily fades into the background.
Are Motorized Blinds Worth It?
Yes! Motorized blinds aren’t a novelty you’ll never use; they’re practical, efficient, and cost-effective. And those three items are always worthwhile investments! This is especially true if you have taller windows or windows in difficult-to-reach spots. Smart Blinds are also highly programmable, which means you can program them to open and close at times that suit your schedule. It’s the small details like this that actually make a house a home.
