Wireless blinds are incredibly versatile and are a popular solution where a mains connection is inaccessible. Customers also like the absence of wires, which keeps the installation neat and tidy. Here is a summary of the most frequently asked questions about wireless blinds.
What are wireless blinds?
Wireless blinds are electric blinds that are not connected to the mains electricity supply. Instead, they use batteries. There are many types of wireless blinds, including roller blinds, bifold door blinds, and roof lantern blinds.
How are wireless blinds powered?
Wireless binds are powered by batteries. The wireless blinds we supply here at The Electric Blind Company use household D-cell batteries. The batteries sit within the blind roller, in a battery tray or with a plug-in charger.
How are wireless blinds controlled?
Wireless blinds can be controlled in various ways. From a traditional handheld remote or wall switch to a smartphone app and even voice commands, you can easily open and close your blinds, whether at home or away. Groups of blinds can also be set up to rise and fall at the same time every day or when certain conditions are met.
