Are Motorised Outdoor Blinds Worth It?

Let’s look at 5 reasons why motorised outdoor blinds make a world of difference to your outdoor space.  

1. They Operate Effortlessly

The most notable benefit of motorised outdoor blinds is their effortless operation. Raising or lowering at the touch of a button, they allow total control of light without even leaving the couch! 

Better yet, as they operate via remote control or wall switch, they’re ideal for the elderly or mobility impaired, as well as hard to reach windows and openings. 

2. They’re Safe For Kids & Pets

Without the need for a hanging cord pull, motorised outdoor blinds eliminate the risk of kids or pets getting tangled or caught in them. This makes them a great option for young families or those with pets.  

3. They’re Sleek And Minimal

Eliminating the need for a hanging chain, motorising your external blinds creates a clean, uncluttered aesthetic appearance.  

Even better, Helioscreen offers a range of discreet and compact headboxes that sit out of sight under eaves or within a recess. Ideal for those that want their window coverings to be as sleek and minimal as possible. 

4. They Significantly Reduce Heat

Outdoor blinds repel up to 90% of the sun’s heat and UV radiation. They significantly reduce the strain on your cooling systems, saving you money on your next power bill while maintaining a comfortable indoor environment. It’s a win-win. 

For lovers of home automation, timers and sun and wind sensors are a great addition to your motorised outdoor blinds. They allow your blinds to automatically react to the weather, even when you’re not home.  

5. They Won’t Break After A Few Years

If you’re investing in motorised outdoor blinds, you’ll want to make sure you’re choosing a quality solution from a reputable supplier.  

Helioscreen’s motorised blinds are powered by an industry-leading Somfy motor. A trusted brand name for over 50 years, Somfy motors guarantee performance, durability and longevity for your blinds.  

Not to mention, all Helioscreen’s outdoor blinds come with a full 5 year warranty on the system, fabric and motor, so you know they’re made to last.
