How To Hardwire Motorized Window Coverings
Colorado homes are becoming more technologically advanced and motorized window coverings are becoming part of that technology. Pre-Wiring motorized window blinds is an important process in the planning stage of your new Colorado home, or commercial building project, and must be considered before the walls are sealed off. Hardwired motorized window coverings will offer you a maintenance free power option.
Motorized window coverings require a power source. By pre-wiring your new Colorado home you’ll never have to worry about changing batteries again. Hard-wiring motorized shades remove the need for unsightly external cords, making them very safe for households with young children or pets.
Since most systems use low voltage, 2 conductor wire (check your local building codes) should be used Homerun fashion. Homerun means that each motorized blind, window shade, or plantation shutter has a dedicated wire that runs back to the centralized power supplies. The power supplies should be mounted in a safe dry location (such as your basement) and out of sight. There are some window coverings that require high voltage, such as draperies and other vertical window coverings, so check with your New View Blinds and Shutters consultant first.
If you are in the beginning stage of your build or remodeling projects and considering motorized window coverings in your Colorado home or other space, please consider pre-wiring for the utmost in no-hassle convenience.
