Battery vs. Hardwired Options
The easiest way to install motorized blinds are through battery powered option. Instead of being connected via wire technique, the motorized blind has small space for battery to hide behind the shade. It creates more elegant look in case there are concerns about design or appearance of the blind. Batteries are easy to use and operate, whereas using hardwire technique become somewhat challenging. However, both of these options have its own pros and cons. Within time, batteries tend to be replaced or fixed to operate more powerful and precise.
If taking care of batteries seems a bit of a drag, hardwiring is an alternative way of installing motorized blinds. Fortunately, there are variety of motors with different voltages to help the blind operate powerful and quiet. Therefore, you should ask your electrician to prepare wires for your future motorized blind project. Thus, this option may seem like more work than another one, however, it provides more durability and longevity as a result.
Overall, visually there isn’t much different between battery operated or hardwired blind, except the tiny motor coming out on the side of wired motorized blinds. Feel free to look at our gallery of recent projects including roller shades, automated window treatments and much more.
