Amazon Alexa: Controlling Blinds with Echo and Dot

This article was updated 5th November 2017 There has been an explosion of low cost home automation technology recently, as big and smaller players and new entrants hussle for position in what seems certain to be a serious growth market over the next few years. With all of these new brands and protocols now available, we are often asked if our electric blinds are compatible with the latest tech. Today, I took a live chat enquiry from a customer who is interested in controlling their blinds with Amazon Echo. As a titan of the ecommerce and technology world - you can't help but take Amazon seriously with this venture into home control, and artificial inteligence. It's a voice activated speaker-come-home-control hub which not only plays music from your favourite music apps, but integrates and controls other devices and services from the "Internet of Things" - Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, Nest, tado°, Uber to name a few.

Controlling Blinds with Samsung Smartthings

We're being asked rather a lot at the moment if it's possible to control our blinds using Smartthings by Samsung. Smartthings is a low(ish) cost home control system that is possible to configure yourself to control a number of compatible devices within the home. It is exclusively distributed through Amazon and Currys/PC World. It uses z-wave technology, but doesn't appear to support a great number of other products "out of the box". Therein lies the problem!

Panel blinds as a stylish alternative to Vertical Blinds for large windows and as patio blinds

Today, I’m going to talk about an alternative to Vertical Blinds – stunning Panel Blinds! Do you have a large window overlooking a fantastic view? Do you have a patio door? Vertical blinds are a popular choice for covering large windows and patios because of the fact they can be drawn to one side so that so that large windows with views can be used as "picture windows" or so that people can walk in and out of patio doors. Vertical blinds remain ever popular as they are cost effective and come in a variety of fabric colours and types. However, they are not to everyone’s tastes!

New! Harrier Easy Fit Disposable Cubicle Curtains!

One of the latest additions to our product range are the new Harrier Easy Fit disposable cubicle curtains, an innovation aimed at slashing curtain replacement times by up to 80%, and therefore reducing costs. The key difference between standard disposable cubicle curtains with eyelets and the new Easy Fit disposable cubicle curtain, is the “Easy load glider” – which as you will see from the image below is a hanger that is built into the curtain and is used as an alternative to cubicle curtain hooks. The Easy load glider, loads directly into the Curtain Hook Removal point – which are now a standard feature of many cubicle tracking systems. The Movatrack system is a perfect example of this.

What are Perfect Fit Blinds?

Perfect Fit blinds are the revolutionary new type of blind for uPVC windows, doors and conservatories. Manufactured by Louvolite, Perfect Fit blinds are so neat they become part of your window frames. Launched in 2005 they have now become Louvolite’s top seller. The blinds require no drilling as they clip directly onto the window. Once the clips are in place a frame is added which holds the blinds. The frames come in a range of colours including white, brown, anthracite grey, golden oak and mahogany to match your window frames & sills which gives the effect that it is part of the window. Fitting takes around 30 seconds and requires no expertise to fit. This makes perfect fit blinds great for people who don’t have a D.I.Y. enthusiast around the house and those who live in an area where NewBlinds.co.uk cannot come out and install your blinds.

Insect Screens – What IS an Insect Screen?

I guess, like many people, eleven years ago I had no idea of the importance in the World's economic merry-go-round of a product that existed to keep flies out of a room. Out of your kitchen, out of your house, out of your life. Of course I had seen the old swinging screen insect screen doors on American movies. But I had never experienced the tranquil feeling they give to the dwellers inside. Protecting them from the misery of mosquitos and the like. There weren't any similar conditions where I came from and never have been and never will be. Will there?
