What Are Motorized Cordless Blinds?

Don’t you just hate it when you are trying to enjoy a movie but sunlight from the windows creates a glare on your TV screen that prevents you from seeing the action? It forces you to get up from your comfortable position to shut the doors. Or maybe you’ve had a long day and you just want to dump yourself in bed, but you first have to close all the drapes for privacy?

Such inconveniences are what led to the creation of motorized blinds and drapes. With the touch of a button, motorized blinds can open or shut themselves.

How Motorized Blinds Differ From Corded Blinds

You may be wondering how motorized blinds can go up and down without a string. The answer is they can’t. Motorized blinds also have cords that pull them up and down, the difference is that the cord is usually hidden from view and can be triggered remotely.

Corded blinds usually have a string or rod on their side that is used to mechanically pull the blind up and down. Someone must be there to physically pull the cord. There are three types of corded blinds: Cordlock, Easylift, and Clutchlift.

Cordlock blinds are the traditional blinds that have a string on the side that you pull up and down to open and close them. Easylift and Clutchlift blinds on the other hand have a pulley system that allows you to open or shut the blind to the level that you desire due to an internal pulley system.
