Although both phrases are used interchangeably, there is a minor difference between the two. For your coverings to be motorised, they require a built-in motor that allows you to raise or lower the shade or blind with a remote control. In order to have them automated, it needs to be synced with your mobile device through an app, wifi and/or a voice activated device such as Alexa or Google Home.
