Motorised honeycomb blinds are a type of window covering that combines the functionality of honeycomb or cellular shades with motorized operation. These blinds are designed to provide privacy, light control, and energy efficiency while also offering the convenience of remote or automated control. Here are some key features and benefits of motorized honeycomb blinds:
Energy Efficiency: Honeycomb blinds, also known as cellular shades, have a unique structure with pockets or cells that trap air. This design helps insulate your windows, making them energy-efficient by reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.
Motorised Operation: Motorized honeycomb blinds come equipped with an electric motor that allows you to open or close them at the touch of a button. This convenience is especially useful for large or hard-to-reach windows. Over the last 14 months we have been motorizing our honeycombs with a motorised solution from Acmeda Rollease. We have found these motors not only to be suitable reliable (they come with a 7 year warranty. The battery pack enables Automate DC motors to operate wirelessly without the constraints of traditional battery wands with disposable batteries or difficulty in reaching charge ports. They are noted to offer 500 up/down cycles on a single charge (depends on shade size & fabric weight). One of our customers who has had these motorised honeycombs installed since September 2022 has only just recharged the bedroom blind with constant daily usage. Retrofitting motors to existing honeycomb blinds has also been possible with our motorized honeycomb blind solution. We have developed our own drives and mounting brackets to enable the motorised kit to be retrofitted to existing honeycomb headrails.
Remote Control: Many motorised blinds can be operated using a remote control, so you can adjust them from anywhere in the room without having to manually pull cords or lift the blinds.
Smart Home Integration: Some motorized blinds are compatible with smart home systems like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple HomeKit. This means you can control your blinds using voice commands or integrate them into your home automation routines. With our new motorised honeycomb blind solution from Acmea Rollease we can offer full home autoamtion intergration provdign the flexibility to not only control the blinds remotly through your phone but also remotly control the blinds based on time of day or weather conditoons
Light Control: You can precisely control the amount of light entering your room by adjusting the position of the honeycomb blinds. This allows for various levels of privacy and daylight filtering.
Privacy: When fully closed, honeycomb blinds offer excellent privacy as they are made from opaque or semi-opaque fabrics that prevent people from seeing into your home.
