Why automate outdoor blinds?
Who wouldn’t want to be able to control their outdoor blinds with just a touch of a button or a voice command? Impress friends and family with an automatic retracting blind. There’s never been a faster or more convenient way to protect your entertaining spaces from the harsh sun and other elements.
Best of all, our blinds can be easily voice controlled by your favourite assistant such as Google Home and Alexa. If you’re saying “Ok, Google” or “Hey, Alexa” to find out the weather, then you’re already halfway there when it comes to implementing our automatic blinds into your space.
How our automatic outdoor blinds work
Our automatic outdoor blinds not only look good, but they’re smart too. Using top-of-the-range automation technology, our new WiFi bridge pairs with your motorised outdoor blind to allow true Smart Home integration. With a simple voice command or a tap on your Smartphone, you can control any of your motorised blinds.
Choose from smart PVC blinds to sunscreen mesh to a full block out material for your home, cafe, bistro or outdoor setting. Our customer service team can help you make the right choices that will add value to your property.
Solar powered vs. AC powered outdoor blinds
There are two different models of outdoor blinds motors. One is solar powered, which avoids the need for an electrician to connect the power and makes the overall cost of choosing automation more affordable. The solar panel includes a battery which is constantly charged by the panel, so you are still able to control your outdoor blinds when it’s cloudy or at night. The other motor is AC powered and is connected to mains power. Typically this option requires an electrician to make the final connection, however it is much faster than solar motor and can be an ideal choice when an electrical provision can be made in the case of a new build or major renovation.
We’re confident in the quality of our products, which is why all outdoor blind motors, shutters and curtains provided by Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters carry a 5-year manufacturer warranty. This extends to any problems including component defect, malfunction or breakdown.
Yes, you can. At Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters, we are always finding innovative and exciting ways to enhance your lifestyle and the value of your home. That’s why we’ve made it possible to control your outdoor blinds on the same remote as your indoor blinds.
The maximum size blind that our motors operate with is 6m width x 3m height. Contact our customer service team for more information relating to your specific measurements.
Outdoor motorised blinds are the ultimate choice for stylish homes as you cannot see the motor. It is located neatly inside the roller tube, making it a discreet and sophisticated option that seamlessly ties into the aesthetics of a home.
Up to 15 blinds can be controlled on the one remote. This means with one touch of a button or voice command, you can control all the outdoor blinds in your home to retract or open at the same time.
The cost of motorisation is much more affordable than you might think. You can expect to pay around $300-400 per blind, which is considerably less than what the price was a few years ago. For an obligation-free quote on outdoor motor blinds, contact our friendly customer service team today.

How does it work?
Introducing the Smart Bridge...
This little box acts just like a handheld remote, telling the blinds to go up or down..
However, because it’s smart… it also connects to your home’s Wi-Fi so that it can communicate with an App on your phone or tablet.
One of these “Smart Bridges” can control up to 20 blinds.
The brains of your smart blinds
The Connector App
The Connector App is a free download from the Apple App or Google Play stores and is super simple to install on your phone or tablet.
Once downloaded, you’re ready to unlock the full potential of your motorised blinds, curtains or outdoor awnings.
The App allows you to organise all your automated products by room, making them easy control from anywhere without thumbling about with a remote for each room.
Another great Connector feature is the ability to create scenes such as ‘Good Morning’ or ‘Sleep’, which seamlessly pair your chosen ambience with your daily routine.
