Make Your Home Motorized

Don't have a smart home? You can still include a motorized option on many of our blinds and shades to control your window coverings with a push of a button. Motorized blinds are also cordless, making them a safe choice in homes with small children or pets. They're also a convenient solution for skylights and other hard to reach windows.

Smart Blinds and Home Automation FAQ

Smart blinds and shades are motorized window treatments that can be controlled remotely using your smartphone, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or existing smart home system. This will allow you to raise and lower your blinds from anywhere you are, as long as you have your smartphone or compatible device. You will also be able to create an automatic opening and closing times and adjust them to perfectly fit your schedule.

Smart blinds are convenient, luxurious, and perfect for anyone looking for a sleek, modern aesthetic. To find the right motorized window coverings for your smart home, please visit:

The easiest way to make your blinds smart is with a smart home hub that is compatible with your motorized window treatment. Our most popular product categories include solar screens, cellular shades, sheer shades, and roller shades. When customizing your smart shade, make sure to select a motorized lift and include a smart hub under the home automation option. The hub will use your home’s wireless internet to connect your window covering to your smart devices. Our Harmony Cellular Shades can also be linked to Bluetooth compatible devices without an additional hub.

If you have an existing home automation system that uses Z-wave (like SmartThings, Wink, Iris, or Nexia), many of our Bali® motorized window treatments can be linked directly to your smart home using the AutoView remote. You can also link Bali products to smart devices over a wireless connection using the Gateway Hub. Please visit this page for Z-wave compatible window treatments:

Smart technology is constantly advancing, making smart blinds and shades more affordable than ever. Most smart home hubs retail for under $300 and it’s the easiest way to connect your blinds and shades to an Amazon Alexa, Echo, or a Google Home device. Even better, it’s likely your home will only need one in your home.

You’ll also need motorized window treatments to make automation possible. Including a motorization option for each shade can run, on average, between $100 to $200 per treatment. You can also include a remote as an alternative for your smart home controls for about $70 per room. There are a lot of customizable factors to consider, but in our opinion, and judging by the dozens of five-star reviews from our customers, the luxury of having smart blinds is absolutely worth the investment.

Blindsgalore smart window coverings are the best, of course! Here are our top three favorite smart home compatible products.

We highly recommend our Blindsgalore® Envision Motorized Roller Shades with a smart home hub. This reliable roller shade has a variety of light-filtering and blackout options with a modern, minimalist flair that’s easy to clean.

Our Blindsgalore® Classic Cellular Shade Light Filtering with a compatible smart hub. Cellular shades add insulation to your windows that will save you on your energy bill while the light filtering fabric adds a soft glow to your windows.

Finally, our Blindsgalore® Motorized Sheer Shadings with a smart home hub. This unique sheer treatment combines the functionality of a blind and a shade, softly diffusing incoming light with a layer of airy fabric or closing it out completely.

If you already own a motorized window treatment, making your blinds smart is as easy as purchasing a compatible smart home hub and linking it to your home’s wireless internet connection. Once it’s connected, you will have the ability to control your motorized shades using a smart phone, tablet, PC, Amazon Alexa or Google Home device from anywhere you are.

While customizing your shade, look for a motorized lift option during step 4. Most of our Blindsgalore® motorized shades can be powered by either a battery charger or a solar recharger kit. In the same step, you’ll also be able to choose your remote-control type and if you’d like to include a smart home automation option, if one is available.

If you have an existing smart home automation that runs on Z-wave (SmartThings, Wink, Iris, Nexia, VeraLite) our motorized Bali products are your best choice. Connecting them to your existing home automation system will allow you to set preferences, timers, and even raise or lower your blinds remotely.

To link your Bali motorized window treatments to your wireless internet instead of a Z-wave controlled smart home, you’ll need a Gateway bridge. The bridge connects to a standard AC electrical outlet and will translate your smart devices commands to match the radio frequency of up to 15 of your Bali motorized blinds or shades.

The options to power your motorized blinds depend on the individual window treatment. A rechargeable battery pack, concealed in the headrail of your shade, is the most common option. Other options include a solar recharge kit, individual AA batteries, or even a 12DC plug-in option. Most automated blinds and shades will have more than one option available during customization.

For home automation connectivity, our compatible smart home hub must be connected to a standard AC outlet and will need access to your existing Wi-Fi connection to work properly. The Bali® AutoView remote can connect directly to your shades via Z-Wave if you have devices that speak that language. The Bali Gateway Bridge requires an AC outlet and wireless internet connection in your home for control. You can learn specific details when selecting your “Lift Option” while customizing your window treatment.
