Blindmaster - Automation
Automation of your Blinds, Awnings and Sunscreens
Think of the Australian way of life and you automatically think of sun and an outdoor lifestyle. But in the summer months the fierce sun can heat up our homes, fade our furnishings and make sitting outdoors quite uncomfortable. Whether you are entertaining with friends or simply seeking protection from the heat and glare of our long hot summers, awnings, sunscreens and external venetian blinds provide the perfect solution.
Since 1982 Blindmaster in Brookvale has been providing homeowners on the Northern Beaches and North Shore with the ultimate in sun protection solutions. With brands such as Helioscreen, Designed Blinds Australia, Silent Gliss, Centor, Corradi and Maxim to name a few, they really are the supplier of choice for all your blinds, awnings, shutters, louvres and retractable roofing systems.

Blinds, awnings and sunscreen automation
In recent years Blindmaster has witnessed automation for sun screen solutions become an increasingly popular choice for those who want the ultimate in convenience – all at the touch of a button.
By choosing to motorise your awning, sunscreen or blind you not only maximise the functionality of the product but also gain a much desired flexibility that is simply not possible with a manual system. And, automation of your blinds, awnings and sunscreens can be a safer alternative when it comes to children and pets. No chain or cord means no more worrying about your child or pet choking.
Blindmaster suggests automation by Somfy
Blindmaster has been a Somfy automation specialist for over 20 years. Somfy is the world’s leading manufacturer of specialised motors and control systems for interior window coverings, awnings, sunscreens and external blinds for the home or office.
A Somfy automated system means with the simple touch of a button you can move your awning, sunscreen, blind or curtains to whatever position you like. No more hard to manage crank handles, cords or ropes and pulleys to get jammed!
Automated awnings, sunscreens and blinds can all help to reduce your energy costs. In summer they can maximise shade and sun protection to keep you cool but then in winter let the sun come in for natural warmth and light.
The smooth operation of Somfy’s motors means your awnings, sunscreens and blinds are never mistreated. Manual operation can damage blinds and awnings through excessive force or improper use. You can even use a Somfy wind sensor to help protect them from damage caused by strong wind.
How does automation of blinds, awnings and sunscreens work?
There are three components for automation – Motor, Control and Sensor.
As a world leader in automation systems, Somfy offer a range of motor and control solutions for all types of internal and external sun shade solutions.
Somfy motors are specially designed for the equipment it operates so that an awning motor runs smoothly so as not to damage the fabric or a roller shutter motor stops automatically if it encounters an obstacle or if it is frozen. Motors for interior shades are particularly quiet.
Automation controls are used to control the motors that raise, lower, open, close or direct the equipment. Wall mounted control units are usually on the wall close to the application, controlled either by radio or electrically via wires. Remote control units mean you are free to control equipment from a distance with a portable handset, wherever you are in the house.
Automated operation of blinds and curtains via Somfy sensors and timers provides an optimum light and heat exchange between indoors and outdoors – without the need for occupant intervention. For example a wind sensor triggers your awning so that it reacts to prevent the fabric from getting ripped or a sun sensor lowers your interior shades or tilts the slats of your venetian blinds to keep your house cool in summer.
