Cellular or honeycomb blinds are possibly the most energy efficient blinds available on the market today. They have a high R-Value i.e. they keep the cold out in the winter and the heat out in the summer. This is because cellular blinds trap a layer of air between the cell/honeycomb making the blind act as an insulator between the outdoors and the interior of the room.
Motorized blackout cellular or honeycomb blinds are a popular choice for bedrooms as they create a cozy atmosphere by keeping out both the light and the noise thereby promoting comfortable and enjoyable sleep.
Motorized cellular or honeycomb shades will make you the envy of your friends and colleagues as they are simply a ‘cool’ touch to your home or office. For you it is the convenience they provide, allowing you to operate your blinds from the simple touch of a remote, smartphone, iPad or a voice command to an Amazon Alexa. The benefits of these conveniences are second to none!
Motorized cellular or honeycomb shades can be powered in two ways. The first option is to hard-wire the shade i.e. connect it to a wall plug. The second option is a ‘wirefree’ option where the shade is powered by batteries. With this second option you can use either regular lithium batteries or rechargeable batteries that would need to be charged approximately every 12 months or connected to a solar panel for continuous charging.
