Everything Homeowners Want to Know About Installing Automated Blinds

Everything Homeowners Want to Know About Installing Automated Blinds

Smart features are all the rage, and it seems like every week, there's a new item you can add to your home for more ease. 

Even your window blinds are now being included with automated features to make using them as easy as pushing a button from a handheld device. 

There are numerous reasons to have the installation completed, but if you want it done professionally, the Revience team is here to provide everything you need to know about the process.

Why Invest in Automated Blinds?

There are numerous reasons to invest in automated blinds, the primary one being convenience. You no longer have to adjust them by hand, and they can be controlled anywhere in the house with the push of a button. 

They're also notorious for helping with energy savings, especially when equipped with temperature sensors. They are ideal if you have hard-to-reach windows but still want control over using them. 

Which Kit Is Right for You?

Before you dive in and make a purchase, it's essential to know that there are three primary types of blinds to choose from.


Solar-powered is exactly what it says, and they're basically just enhanced versions that are eco-friendly because they recharge using UV rays.


This is a basic type that can be controlled with a remote, giving you a simple option that doesn't require a connection to smart home features.

Smart Blinds

If you want an enhanced option, smart blinds are the way to go. They connect to your Wi-Fi, and you can control them using voice commands or through an app on your smartphone.

How Is a Professional Auto Blinds Install Completed?

There are a few steps to get the install completed for automated blinds.

Gather Supplies

Choose the kit and gather the appropriate tools, including a drill, measuring tape, screwdriver, and ladder if you have high windows. 

Mount the Frame

Once all your tools are gathered, the brackets need to be mounted per the manufacturer's instructions to make sure they are securely attached to the wall or window frame.

Install the Blinds

The blinds will need to be installed and will typically slide or clip into the brackets.

Power Them Up

If you're picking smart or motorized blinds, they need to be connected to a power source. Whether you're using batteries, plugging them in, or solar panels, always follow the manufacturer's recommendation. 

If you're not familiar with these processes, be sure to reach out to an expert for a professional connection.

Test Them

Even if they look perfectly installed, problems could still arise, so make sure you do a test run, and if troubles occur, check the manual for helpful tips.
