Innovative technology continues to impress by making everyday activities much more efficient and convenient. Even when it comes to blinds and awnings, the latest in digital technology has created automation systems to help enhance your living environment.
At Mal Glanville & Co, we stock home motorisation systems from two of the leading brands: Somfy & Alpha Motors. In this blog, we explore why investing in products from either of these brands can help increase the functionality of your window coverings and offer flexible solutions unlike manual systems.
There is nothing quite like being able to control the lighting in your home simply with the touch of a button or with a voice command. Brands like Somfy and Alpha Motors make this possible. Somfy offers one single remote to control all Somfy products, the option for controlling your blinds and awnings with your smartphone as well as voice control features that are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Alpha Motors has even created an app called Alpha Neo which allows you to control motorised products individually, by area or across the entire house from anywhere in the world, as long as you have internet connection. Having better control of your living space has never been easier.
Motorised blinds come with sensors and timers that can be used to control when the blinds open and shut without you even thinking about it. You can set up your blinds to open when the sun is at its brightest to allow more heat in during winter. Or you can set timers for blinds to close as soon as the sun goes down, so you don’t have to worry about privacy in your home as soon as it gets dark. Somfy and Alpha Motors both have a range of sun, wind and temperature sensors that can manage this.
Opening and closing blinds manually can have a negative effect on the blinds and cause damage more easily. With mortised blinds the power exerted on the blinds when opening and closing them is much more controlled. This in turn offers maximum functionality for the blinds while also increasing its lifespan.
Whatever home motorisation system you need, our team can help you out. Our Alpha Motors products come with a 7-year replacement warranty and all products are fully compliant to Australian standards. To find out more, give us a call on (02) 4323 1500.
