Motorised Blinds: Frequently Asked Questions

How do they work?

When we are manufacturing your roller blinds, we will install a rechargeable battery powered or mains motor in the headrail, which makes it completely invisible. This can communicate with the remote we send with your blind; you are able to set a top and bottom limit, and stop the blind at any point in the middle to let the perfect amount of light into your home.

What type of motorised blinds are best for me?

Among our options are
Rechargable Li-on battery powered motors.
These blinds are available on any product 600mm to 3000mm in width and 30000mm in height, and are powered by -Automate - you can read all about this company here- a leading company with super quiet motors that offers a class leading seven year warranty.

Mains powered motors.
Available on all blinds with no maximum width or height restrictions, and may be used for linked blinds and are again made by Rollease Acmeda home automation. Blinds that use a Mains motor usually require the assistance of a registered electrician.

Which motor option should I select?

Motor, Remote and Charger - Buying your first motorised blind? This is for you.

Motor only - Remotes can be used for up to fifteen blinds and our charging adapters can be used for as many blinds as you wish. By purchasing the motor only option, you can use your accessories from another blind with your new roller blind.

Can I install them?

Our motorised blinds are installed like any other roller blind. Simply follow our handy fitting guides that come with your order and we will also send you some simple instructions for configuring your motorised blind to set the top and bottom limits. You may need to engage an electrician to bring power to the units if you choose our mains powered option, but the battery powered units install just like any of our other 'easy install' blinds.


We give you peace of mind with a full five-year warranty on our mains motors and three years on our rechargeable battery powered motors.
