So how does it work? Generally, we would use a battery pack with 8ea AA Lithium batteries. A radio frequency motor is programmed to a hand held remote that is used to operate the tilt function. Honestly, this sort of application is used most often in hard to reach windows.
Most people buy wood blinds and faux wood blinds for their functional beauty and reasonable price. To motorize a wood or faux wood blind adds anywhere from $250 to $400 per blind for the motor, and the remote can run another $100 to $150. This could add up fast if you have many windows. For this reason, this sort of motorization is generally only done on a couple hard to reach windows.
While motorization is increasingly popular - it is mostly used on blinds where the motor is used to raise and lower the blind - not tilt the louvers. Never-the-less, it is available and for the rare project could really be a better option then a 12 foot cord hanging down in a stairwell - or having to get a ladder out to change the tilt on your high wood blind.
Don't forget, we provide an online wood and faux wood blind calculator so that you can get a quick estimate for your project.
