Vernon Motorized & Automated Blinds FAQ

How are motorized window coverings controlled?

In general, motorized shades are controlled by a wireless remote. They can also be controlled by your home automation system, smartphones or tablets. They can even be controlled by your voice (When integrated with systems like Alexa or Google Home).

There are also simpler motorization systems available where you can simply pull a wand and the shades will stop at the preset top or bottom limit. These are the entry level in motorization.

What is the difference between motorized and automated window coverings?

Motorized means that your blinds are simply being operated by a motor as opposed to a manual device like a cord or chain.

Automated means programmed to automatically operate on a schedule or when they are included in a scene. With one press of a button or voice command your lights can be turned down, the music can turn on and your shades can drop, so you can have the privacy you need to dance the night away.

How are motorized window coverings powered?

Motorized window coverings can be powered by the electricity in your home or by batteries. Shades can come with plug in transformers and the wires would be surface run from the shade to an outlet nearby. Wires can also be run (by an electrician or low voltage specialist) and this way we can hide the wiring in your walls.

It’s best to plan early in your build or renovation so that you can add wire where you need it. Your battery powered coverings could be powered by an internal rechargeable motor or by rechargeable or disposable batteries. You’ll find that some systems use AA batteries and others might use D or C Cells.

When should I contact Westbeach about a motorized shade budget?

We recommend contacting us at the very beginning of your project.

Firstly, it’s much better to have wire run to power the shades prior to drywall being put up. It’s very cheap to run wire – but, after the walls go up, it becomes more difficult to do or you may run into restrictions with shade sizing if you choose battery powered shades.

It’s also a good idea to include motorized window coverings in your initial budget, as this is often an overlooked aspect of homebuilding and renovation. If you plan for the cost of motorized shades at the beginning you will much more likely be able to fit them into your budget.

How large can motorized roller shades be?

Battery powered shades can be up to 12 feet by 12 feet. Line voltage shades can be as large as you need. You are only restricted by fabric widths, but it’s possible to get around that problem with proper seaming.
