What Are the Types of Motorized Blinds?

Types of Motorized Blinds

If you’re tired of tangled, messy, fragile cord-operated window blinds, you’re not alone. They can be a strangulation hazard for children and a nuisance every time you need to open or close your blinds.

Thankfully, motorized and wireless blinds are a modern and popular alternative that completely eliminates the problems associated with string-operated blinds. All you need to do is flip a switch or press a button and your blinds will effortlessly roll up or down on command. Some motorized blinds can also be operated through an app on your phone, making them a very convenient option.

Whether you’re doing a home renovation or want to upgrade the operations of your office blinds, there are several types of motorized blinds to choose from. Here’s what you need to know about the options available and how they work.


How Do Motorized Blinds Work?

Motorized blinds and shades work with a mechanism that opens and closes them without the need to manually pull string or twist a tube. Here are the different options based on power source.

Battery Wand

Motorized battery wand blinds are a common choice since they are powered by an attached battery tube. The tube is hidden behind the shade, along the wall, or built directly into the shade.


Hard-wired blinds are installed with a power adapter that plugs into an outlet. Some people choose this option because there is no need to change batteries. The power comes right from the wall outlet and provides constant power to the system. It is also important to know that if you have heavy blinds, you will need a hard-wired motor system, as lifting heavy blinds can drain batteries quickly.


A motorized system that uses solar power is designed with a rechargeable battery that charges daily through a solar panel. The battery connects to the panel and draws power to the shade from the sun’s energy. This is a great option for people who are environmentally conscious and who don’t want to change the batteries.
