Motorized Shades: Will I Need To Run Wiring To My Windows?

If you’re considering motorized shades for your bedroom, living room, or guest space, you might be wondering: will I need to run wiring to my windows? Some window treatment professionals will say that you should plan for motorized shades or blinds when you’re building or remodeling—we say you can install modern motorized styles at ANY time! No wiring needed!

No Wiring? Here’s How Your Motorized Shades Will Work

Today, motorized window treatments do not require intrusive construction to install. Instead, your motorized blinds and shades can be battery-operated. Better yet, the majority of residential shades installed by the team at Budget Blinds are rechargeable and only need to be plugged in every six months (depending on how often you lower and raise them). When you install our new Smart Home Collection, there is no need to buy and replace batteries. Simply recharge your shades like you recharge your phone by plugging a charging cord into a standard wall outlet.

If you’re looking for the most aesthetically pleasing motorized blinds, battery-powered options will prove unnoticeable. These blinds are also easy to install and won’t take up any outlet space. 

Types of Motorized Control Options

Motorized blinds and shades are extremely convenient and safe for the busy parent, cautious dog owner, or tech-savvy homeowner. Plus, each style comes with a variety of motorized control options to fit your needs and wishes. Some motorized control options include: 

  • Motorized wand: Wands are an easy and affordable way to control your blinds one at a time. 

  • Hand-held remote control: Hand-held remotes can operate up to 20 shades on a single channel with ease.

  • Smartphone app: Some motorized shades will work by installing an app for iOS and Android platforms to control your window treatments from anywhere. 

  • Wall controls: Worried about keeping the remote away from kids, pets, or a forgetful memory? Wall controls for your motorized blinds can also be installed.

  • Smart Home Hub and voice-control: For peak automation, installing the Budget Blinds Smart Home Hub will allow you to connect all of your motorized shades to voice-activated assistants like Alexa or Google Home.
