Automated blinds

JohnnieBDecember 13, 2008

Does anybody here have experience with automated blinds, or know anything about them? I have a bedroom with 4 windows that have a nice daytime view but receive a lot of street light at night. I would like to either set them to open and close at particular times, or to be on a remote so I could open and close all of them with the push of a button. Can they be battery-powered, or do they need to be hard wired? We just finished a major renovation project and would prefer not to run any more wiring!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

you can get remote control shades that are battery operated (control is like tv control)--you actually have to push the buttons. if you want to go the hard wire route, they can be set on a timer. I would recommend Hunter Douglas, pricey, but dependable. Look at either silhouette or duette.
