Motorized or Machanicle ?

Imagine you could also use a motorized system to ensure privacy: when the lights come on in your living room, you no longer have to stand in front of a dark window at night and pull up the blinds. The topic of motorization is discussed only in this chapter and not elsewhere in the book. It's common to press a button to change TV channels or open a garage door from a distance. But have you ever thought that your curtains can also become motorized? There are several types of motorization, but which type is best for you depends entirely on the motorized curtains you are interested in and your budget. . Generally speaking, there are three possible mobility applications you can focus on: battery control, low voltage, and hardware connectivity.

Battery Control

Battery-controlled motorized systems are cheap to install, but they require more regular maintenance than the other two types of systems. This is mainly because batteries need to be replaced frequently. In addition, in some places where you may use motors to control (such as skylight systems) you will probably need a fairly long ladder to change the battery. If you plan to motorize more than one piece of decor in a room, then I can safely say that battery-controlled systems are not entirely practical as they do not offer a "group" control option. However, if you only have an easily accessible, lightweight piece of décor (such as a pleated curtain) that needs to be controlled via buttons, a battery system is a convenient, cost-effective option.

 Low Voltage

This type of system is easier to install than a hardware-connected system. It is a popular outlet that conveniently controls a set of window treatments with the push of a button.

It's ideal for "smaller" décor (such as a set of blinds or shades), being smaller and less noisy than a hardware-connected system. The disadvantage of this type of electromechanical product is that it relies on its own voltage, so it often cannot provide maximum power for long lines or different rotational speeds.

Hardware Connection

Hardware connection decoration has the greatest power and can be used to lift, drag and tilt objects. It is the most efficient type of motorized system. You'll use this system in situations such as dragging velvet pleated draperies that are heavily lined and lined. No one can move this type of pleated drapery every day effortlessly, but a hard-wired motor can do the job. The disadvantage of hardware connection is that it is best planned and installed before construction rather than after - although it will work either way.

 Home automation is not a new concept, but the industry is rapidly evolving and changing, offering new prospects and increased convenience. From curtains that roll down as soon as night falls, to curtains that open and close simultaneously when you're away on vacation, to skylights that can be easily closed at the touch of a button, motorization has made life a little simpler.
