BroadLink® RF-IR Blaster Automation Hub: Need an easy phone app system? Take a look at our affordable new blind and shade hub, operated by Android and IOS apps. This RF-IR blaster hub can "learn" RF radio signals for our blind motors and skylight/window openers! It is also has IFTTT event triggering (if-this-then-that) and IR learning.

Turn all your old phones and tablets into powerful WiFi home automation controllers!

Mermet® Custom Shades: Our DIY shade and blind motor kits are popular, but for those of you wanting a more complete solution, we are now offering high quality shade and blind fabrics from Mermet®, mounted on standard tubing, with hem bar. Our motors just slide in and lock in place - no fuss no muss! Please check our Custom Blinds and Shades website for info.

Z-WAVE® Blind Automation: This protocol is used in many new home automation systems, and we have a Z-Wave interface for our roller shade and blind motors, and Z-Wave control of our skylight and window opener systems. We also have interfacing for all other home automation systems via relays (see our compatibility guide).

If you have our newer Series G tubular motors and external receivers, please use this motor instructions link:

Instructions: Series G motors and receivers

The Series G motors use a unique digital radio system, and all Series G motors and other devices have the letter G in the part number (SKU).

We developed these for our greenhouse division, and they are more robust because they have to handle the higher temperature and humidity extremes of the greenhouse environment. They have worked out so well that we have decided to use them in domestic sales too, at the same price.

We have hand-held remotes, wall mount timers and switches, sun sensors and other accessories that work directly by radio RF control that can reach anywhere in a typical home.

We also have home automation interfaces for them that can be added at any time, so that you use phones and tablets to control them (Z-wave, etc.).
