If you’ve been looking for a new home shading option, you’ve probably heard of ULTRA® PLUS Smart Blinds. Here at Appeal, we’ve been working with them for years and know them inside out, but we can understand why they might be confusing. They’re often referred to as ‘smart blinds,’ and this can lead people to believe they’re an especially tidy and formal type of blind. 

This is inaccurate. ULTRA® PLUS Smart Blinds are certainly a very neat and sophisticated type of shading, but there’s no requirement to put on a tuxedo every time you go near them. They’re actually a type of electric blind.

Explaining ‘Smart Blinds’

ULTRA® PLUS Smart Blinds get their name from a design innovation. They can be operated by remote control or a built-in wall panel, but they can also be controlled via smartphone. When they’re installed, they can be synced with an IOS or Android app and within moments, you’ll get complete and effortless control over your blinds. You’ll be able to create pre-set programs so they activate in certain temperatures, or on a personalised day/night cycle. If you want, you can upgrade them to include voice activation through an Amazon Alexa or Google Nest device. ULTRA® PLUS is one of the most innovative ways to operate your blinds and truly modernise your home. 

There are multiple benefits to this. For starters, this eliminates the need for any dangling cables or cords. This means they’re safer for home use if you have small children or pets running around, and there’s less chance of things getting tangled up in them. Additionally, you don’t even have to be at home to control your blinds. If you’re at work or out shopping and suddenly remember you left the blinds open, you can simply access the app and close them. They’re also the perfect choice for anyone living with mobility issues. 

Versatile Shading Options

The other piece of good news with ULTRA® PLUS Smart Blinds is that they can be widely customised. Smart technology can be used with almost our full range of products and integrated into our most popular designs. In layman’s terms, this means you can get ULTRA® PLUS versions of Honeycomb blinds, Roller blinds, ClearView Gable End blinds, and many more. They can also be manufactured to any size of window or door and we can cater to all tastes.

As a result, ULTRA® PLUS Smart blinds are arguably the most cutting-edge shading option currently available. They lend a degree of contemporary sophistication to the home and can even increase your property value. They increase the kerb appeal and make your house look advanced and ultra-modern. If you’re thinking of selling your property in the next few years, these incredible electronic blinds will help you justify a higher selling price. 

With all this in mind, it’s not surprising that we’re proud of our ULTRA® PLUS Smart blinds. When we first saw them in action, it felt like the window blinds of the future had arrived early.
