Electric blinds

Have you bought a new house or are you planning a renovation? Then electric blinds are a great addition to your home. Not only do they offer more comfort and control over how much light you let into your rooms, they are also energy efficient.

What are electric blinds and how do they work?

Electric blinds are powered by an electric motor and can therefore be operated automatically. Instead of manually pulling a cord to raise or lower the blinds, electric blinds can be conveniently controlled using a switch, remote control or even an app thanks to the electric motor installed inside.

What are the possibilities?

Electric blinds are available in different sizes, materials and colours, just like manually operated shutters. They are suitable for practically any type of window and can be used to regulate the incoming light from outside, increase privacy or regulate the room temperature. The latter makes electric blinds particularly energy efficient. They help to level the room temperature by keeping the heat inside in winter and shading your rooms in summer. This means that less energy is needed to keep the house at the desired temperature, which ultimately leads to lower energy costs.

Switch, remote control or app?

The main advantage of electric blinds is that they can be controlled using a switch, a remote control or even your smartphone. For example, you can use our Busch-free@home® system to control your entire electrical installation and home automation via a standardised system.

Thanks to our networked solutions, you can then control your electric blinds from the comfort of your sofa without having to get up. You can also add your blinds to scenes and control them together with your heating, for example, or set up automations based on sunrise and sunset times. For example, the blinds can be raised automatically in the morning to let in more light and then close automatically when it gets dark in the evening.

If you decide to use a switch to control your blinds, you can also choose from different versions. For example, there are switches that are equipped with a timer or a key switch. The latter ensures that the system cannot be operated by children or unauthorised persons. A switch with a rotary knob can be used to easily open or close the blinds. Finally, there is the impulse switch with operating rockers or a modular system.
