Control Options

There are number of different control options available. Let’s review them and go over some use cases and benefits for each of the option.

  • Remote Control – Radio Frequency (RF) controlled. RF means that remote control does not have to be in direct sigh of the blind’s receiver. This is one of the most popular option based on functionality and cost. You might want to consider here locations as it will call for one or more remote controls. Think of controlling blind on Patio Door and your Master Bedroom, using one remote control might not be easy. Also remote controls have predefined number of blinds that they can control – 1 channel, 6 channels, 15 channels, 45 channels.
  • Smart Hub – this is basically a small box that connects to your Wi-Fi router, your blinds and your smartphone. It allows to control your blinds using your smartphone app. This option also allows to control your blinds via Amazon Alexa, Add to Siri, or with Hey Google. You can also create schedule, create scenes and control your blinds while you are not at home.
  • Bluetooth – blind motor has a component that allows to connect motor with your smartphone app. This option does not require Smart Hub however you can control your blinds only when you are at home. For some this might be limitation while for others it can be a way to save some money while also give more peace of mind when it comes to home Smart Things security in general.
  • Wand – it is a long stick with two buttons at the bottom. Pressing those buttons will make your motorized shade to open or close. Wands are cheaper option to go, however they require you to come to a window in order to operate the blind. Wand operated blinds cannot be controlled via smartphone app.

Power Options

I would say that for most of the people power options are irrelevant as most people go with Li-Ion battery operated motors. However, I thought to create this section as some people built custom homes or do renovations where power options for blinds do come into picture.

  • Low Voltage Wired – this option means that each window will have a physical low voltage wire be driven to it. There are couple of options like 12V or 24V motors. Please note that 24V motors are a slight quite than 12V motors. The benefit of such set up is that motors will work for a really long time as there is no battery inside that wears out. The con is that motors are tend to cost more compared to battery operated ones.
  • Battery Operated – most popular options due to versatility and cost. Most battery operated motors under normal usage will require charging twice a year. There is also an option to install charging extension cord if blind is far from the floor.
  • 110V Wired – the benefit of this option is that the motor cost the least and in addition it will last for really long time. The con is obviously you have to have 110V grade cable (14/2) supply to each window.
