Motorized Blinds and Shades
Whether you have just one heavy shade you'd like to motorize–or several you need to integrate into your smart home system–Bali Motorized Shades offers a simple, seamless solution that’s easy to control, power, and install.
A safe, cordless option for homes with children or pets, motorized shades are also convenient for kids’ rooms and movie nights, and a necessity for opening hard-to-reach shades.

Easy step-by-step instructions to setup and control shades, devices, and gateways.
Enhance home security and look like you're at home (even when you're away) with shades that raise and lower automatically at set times of the day.
Control a single—or whole house full—of shades from your phone or tablet.
Connect with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant for convenient voice control.
Up to 30% of a home's heating/cooling energy can be lost through windows alone. Window treatments can help offset this loss, saving you money in the long run.
Create routines and time-based schedules.
With today's extreme focus on health and cleanliness, not having to touch cords or other lift devices can help curb the spread of germs.
Set shades to open and close while away from increased home security.
Control from your phone or with your voice from anywhere.
