How to Order

Single Roller Blinds: The motor size will automatically be selected for you as you proceed through the order process based on your overall width.  

Linking Blinds:  The motor size will automatically be selected for you as you proceed through the order process based on the individual or combined widths of your blinds per layout selected.   As the same size motor must be used within a specific layout, the largest motor will determine the size of all motors used for that particular layout.  

Automate 240v Motors - Hardwired 

Now available, the Automate 240v motors are hardwired directly into your home via a tail.  This option requires the use of an electrician.  

Hardwiring your motors is extremely reliable power source and eliminates the need to recharge your motors as they are wired directly into the main power switch of your house.

For new builds, you can purchase the 240v tails from our spare parts list and have them installed at frame stage.  This is an easy way to ensure the installation of your motorised roller blinds is a breeze when the house is finished.

The tails are installed and wired into the mains.  When you receive your blinds, the 240v motors will already be inserted in the end of the roller blind tube.  After you have installed your blinds, simply click the motor lead into the tail for instant power.  Please note that some tails have 4 wires.  The Automate 240V motors are 3 wire motors.  Please ask your electrician to ignore the black wire when hard wiring the tails in.

For established houses, it is more complex and advised that you enlist the help of a professional electrician to do the hard wiring required.
