This is one of the most important decisions to make for your electric or motorised blinds, you have the following choices:
- Remote Control Handset
- Wire Free Wall Switch
- 3rd Party Control From A Home Automation System
Remote control is the most popular way to operate your blinds, it gives you the flexibility to control your blinds from anywhere in the room and even from outside if required. Here at Deans we only use Somfy motors for our blinds with the RTS remote control. RTS is a radio signal which means the signal will travel through walls, the is essential if your blinds are to be recessed into a ceiling void or hidden behind pelmets.
Wire free wall switches are also available working with the same RTS technology as a remote control handset. These tend to be specified for Offices, Classroom, Factories and Carehomes where a remote control handset can be easily misplaced. You can even add a splash of colour with the new Somfy Smoove. This is available in multiple colour combinations to suit your décor.
Home Automation is getting more and more popular, the home automation system can control your heating, lighting, security, audio visual and even your blinds, there are lots of different systems on the market from Lutron, Crestron, Control 4, Rako, the list is endless. With home automation we deal directly with your engineer who can tell us what is required for the blinds to work with the desired system, we can help supply different relays and transmitters to make sure you have a seamless integration
