Offering convenient and efficient window coverage, hardwired blinds offer a seamless integration of technology and functionality within your home. However, when considering electric blinds for your property, it’s important to understand the different aspects required to fit hardwired blinds. Here, we explore the factors that influence power requirements for hardwired blinds.

Hardwired and Battery Electric Blinds Fitted in Cambridgeshire


The placement of your electric blinds is one of the most crucial elements impacting suitable power options. For example, if the blinds sit within a recessed window frame or the window is hard to reach, a hardwired motor could be challenging to fit, so a battery-powered solution may be the best solution. On the other hand, if a socket is located close to the window, hardwired blinds may be possible.


The way you choose to control your electric blinds will significantly impact the power requirements. Are you opting for wireless switches, remote controls, or integrating the blinds into a smart home system? Each control mechanism requires a different power solution and wiring configuration.


The type of fabric used to make your blinds will influence the motor’s power demands. Heavier fabrics may need a more robust motor and power source to ensure smooth operation. While lighter sheer fabrics may operate efficiently with a lower power battery motor.


The dimensions of your blinds may also determine the power requirements. Large electric blinds may require more powerful hardwired motors to lift and lower them effectively, whereas most smaller blinds can operate smoothly and efficiently on a battery-powered motor.
