Remote control roller blinds are perfect for the modern automated home or office and are essential for out of reach windows. They are also useful for enhancing child safety by eliminating the need for chains. You can add this option to any of our roller blinds.
All our remote control blinds use Somfy motors. Somfy are world leaders in motors and control systems for automated movement products around the home and workplace. All their products meet European safety standards.
Somfy WireFree Rollup 28 RTS - Battery Powered Motor System
The Somfy WireFree Rollup 28 RTS System is simple to install - there's no need for an electrician as there's no wiring required. There's also the added benefit of being able to install the system without disrupting the interior decoration.
The system comprises a motor unit and radio receiver which are concealed within the tube of the roller blind. The motor will operate any of our roller blinds up to a maximum size of 4 square metres. For larger sizes, we recommend using our transformer motor system.
The motor system can be controlled by the Somfy Telis 1 or Somfy Telis 4 handsets (sold separately).
The motor system is powered by a battery tube which is simply mounted to the wall using clips. The battery tube can usually fit neatly behind the roller blind where it is hidden from view. You can choose between a reloadable battery tube or a rechargeable battery tube.
Reloadable Battery Tube
The reloadable battery tube is supplied with 8 x AA Lithium disposable batteries. With typical usage, the batteries have a life expectancy of around one year.
Rechargeable Battery Tube
The rechargeable battery tube is supplied with 10 x AA NiMH rechargeable batteries and a charger. To recharge the batteries, simply plug the charger into the battery tube - there's no need to disassemble the battery tube.
