Motorised Blinds

Luminos blinds can be operated using a motorised system from a wall switch, remote control or programmed control system, which may be integrated seamlessly with a home automation system. Luminos is proud to offer this option in association with Somfy, a world-leader in such systems as well as new comer Elettrico that offers 5m tracks at as little as R4000.

The Benefits of Motorising your Blinds

• Motorising your blinds can add to your privacy and comfort by regulating the amount of daylight into a room according to your needs or activities in the room, such as watching television, without glare or reflections
• As motorised blinds can be programmed to react automatically to sunlight and temperature you can protect yourself, your belongings and plants from the harmful effects of the sun
• Motorising blinds adds simplicity to the home and can prolong the life of your blinds
• Heavy blinds can be operated effortlessly
• The weight of materials used in a blind, the height of a person opening or closing a blind and the strength that they use all have a bearing on how easily and smoothly your blinds open. By motorising your blinds you have peace of mind knowing that your blinds will move smoothly and evenly every time, whilst minimising the chances of damage occurring to the blind
