In today’s fast-paced world, the quest for convenience, innovation, and seamless technology integration into our homes continues to grow. Motorised blinds and shades are a perfect example of this pursuit, offering homeowners an unparalleled level of control, safety, and aesthetic appeal.

In this blog post, we’ll dive into the world of motorised blinds and shades, discussing the benefits of motorisation, the different motor brands available, and how you can integrate them into your home. We’ll also share insights from Andrew, Stan Bond’s General Manager, who recently addressed some common questions about internal blinds and motorisation in a video.


Benefits of Motorised Blinds and Shades:

There are several critical advantages to incorporating motorised blinds and shades into your home. Some of these benefits include:


Somfy vs. Automate Motors:

As Andrew mentioned in his video, Stan Bond offers two primary motor brands for their internal blinds: Somfy and Automate. Somfy is a European company with a long-standing reputation for producing premium motorisation products. On the other hand, Automate, a brand under Acme, Australia’s largest manufacturer of roller blind components, offers innovative solutions at a more affordable price point.
While both brands provide excellent motorisation options, your choice will depend on your budget and specific requirements. Somfy might be the better choice for commercial applications or situations where specialised control systems are needed. However, Automate has been gaining popularity, particularly for indoor use, with approximately 70% of Stan Bond’s motorisation customers opting for this brand.

Motorization Options:

Motorised blinds and shades come in various options, such as 240-volt motors that require professional installation by an electrician and battery-operated motors that can be charged using a standard phone charger. Both Somfy and Automate offer remote controls in different channel options and colours, allowing you to control your motorised blinds and shades easily.
For an even more advanced experience, you can add a hub, such as the Automate hub or a similar option from Somfy. This hub connects your motorised blinds to your home network, enabling you to control them from your smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are.

Future Integration Possibilities:

As Andrew mentioned in his video, the future of motorised blinds and shades is expected to include integration with home automation systems like ZigBee, Z-Wave, and Matter, allowing homeowners to control their blinds alongside other smart home devices, creating a seamless and connected living environment.

Selecting the perfect motorised blinds and shades for your home, Stan Bond is here to help. With a wide range of products, including Crimsafe Security Doors, Indoor Blinds, Outdoor Blinds & Awnings, Roller Shutters, and more, Stan Bond offers a

I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
