If you’re fortunate enough to be able to get away for a break this summer, or at any time of the year, home security will be top of mind. It’s a great feeling knowing that your home and contents are as secure as they can be and that is why an investment in our motorised blinds is a very smart idea. To make our blinds even more affordable, we give you a choice of motors in different price brackets. We now import a lower cost motor – however, it is not currently WiFi capable, unlike the more expensive Acmeda motor. You can make a full comparison here.    

Our motorised blinds are the ultimate in style and convenience, but they are also an effective security tool when you team them with Automate Pulse 2 which is locally supplied by Automate Acmeda. Pulse 2 turns your motorised roller blinds into smart motorised roller blinds, giving you the ability to operate them from anywhere. Pulse 2 connects to your home network, giving you the luxury of automated shade control with the Automate app that is able to be used on all Android phones, tablets and iOS devices, including Apple watches and iPads.

By being able to control your roller blinds remotely, you give the impression of being home even when you’re not – raise your blinds in the morning, lower them at night. And with sunrise and sunset detection, Pulse 2 uses time zone and location to automatically raise or lower blinds according to the position of the sun – this is yet another indication that someone is home as the blinds will go up and come down at the time they normally would when you’re at home.

Any home security expert will tell you that making it look like you’re at home even when you’re not is one of the biggest deterrents when it comes to property crime. Home automation, such as Pulse 2 operating our motorised rollers, is playing an increasing role in this home protection strategy – smart lighting is another obvious example. As well as technology-based security solutions, more low-tech methods like having a neighbour clear the letterbox every day, or leaving a car in the driveway if possible, are also highly effective.

This summer, whether you’re just around the corner or in another part of the country, give yourself the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ve done all you can to protect your home. With our automated roller blinds, you get a beautiful bonus – stylish blinds that are as easy on the eye as they are to operate! To secure your summer with automated blinds, contact us today.
