Motorisation and Home Automation

Smart homes or home automation is becoming a buzz word in our everyday language. With the advent of APPS and affordable software like Google Home and Amazon Alexa, Home Automation is fast becoming more accessible and affordable for the majority.
In the Window Furnishing industry, indoor and outdoor blinds as well as curtain tracks can be motorised.
Traditionally, motorised window furnishings are operated by a switch or a remote control, with the advent of modern technology we now can operate these motorised window furnishings from a smart phone or give a voice activated command.
