BDD offers motorization on most window coverings. At the touch of a button, a client can instantly adjust window coverings for privacy and light control. Motorization can be powered by electricity, batteries, and solar power. BDD can motorize horizontals, verticals, rollers, wovens, romans, cellular, and draperies. We offer both BTX and Somfy products, which are assembled in our Phoenix manufacturing facility.

Why Motorize:

  1. Safety: If you ever had to climb in a garden tub to operate your blinds or use a ladder to get to high windows, you know that adjusting blinds can be dangerous at times. Motorization is perfect for those hard to reach windows and can replace pesky blind cords, which can be hazardous to children and pets. Motorization offers the added protection you need to keep you and your loved ones safe.
  2. Security: If you’ve ever come home to a dark house or been out of town for a long period, timers and/or sun sensors can provide you with added security. These can control the window coverings to open and close, giving the appearance of being home.
  3. Energy Savings: Timers and/or sun sensors can operate your shades even when you are not home. They can be set to open and close to take advantage of sun location. Costly heating and cooling costs will be dramatically decreased by simply setting the controls to block hot summer heat and cool winter drafts.
  4. Accessibility: Both the elderly and those with physical limitations sometimes have trouble operating the cords on blinds. Motorization offers ease of operation with a simple touch of button to operate their window coverings. Motorization also allows you to control those high transom or 2nd story blinds with ease.
