The latest technology from Europe is now available, making motorisation of your blinds more accessible. 

SOMFY SONESSE 30, SOMFY ALTUS 28 and ACMEDA lithium battery powered motorised blinds make motorization affordable.

Just recharge the lithium battery (which is incased inside the roller tube) by connecting the charger to a point on the outside of the roller tube. It is a little like charging a mobile phone.  It takes a few hours to completely recharge. Most battery powered blinds need charging every 3-6 months.  You will need to recharged it more regularly if you use it alot or if it is a heavier blind than normal. The charger also comes with an extension cord, so if the powerpoint is not close it can still be reached to recharge.  

The SOMFY SONESSE 30, SOMFY ALTUS 28 and ACMEDA motorised battery charged roller blinds can also be connected to the WIFI hubs and controlled by your smart phone, ipads and other devices, as well as a wall switch and hand held remote control. 

Lithium Ion batteries DO degrade over time, as does everything.

The real question is how much and when. Our lifecycle testing suggests that our Li-Ion batteries exhibit nominal annual degradation and that the degradation is consistent over time (i.e. there is no cliff where the batteries will unexpectedly stop holding a charge). The batteries will degrade slowly over time the rate depends on load, environmental conditions, manufacturing and use. But they can hold a meaningful charge for the duration of their useful life (500 charges).

Somfy Motors and Rollease Acmeda offer an EXTENDED WARRANTY (see our warranty page for explanation of what "extended warranty" is")   UP TO 5 year waranty on Automate Li-Ion motors.  The new Somfy Altus 28 is 3 years.

The technology is proven and reliable. Premier Shades have been selling these types of motors since 2016 with an error rate of less than 2%.  The Directors of the company and many of the employees have this style of motorised blind in their own homes. 

Occasionally, as with anything else, we will experience product failures with our Lithium Ion battery motors. As such, we offer and stand behind an extended 5 year warranty on all Li-Ion battery motors. Should the motor fail to perform, simply contact Premier Shades to make a warranty claim. (see warranty page for further information) If it is after 2 years it falls under our "extended warranty terms"

How long do the motors last?  Lithium Ion batteries degrade over time, as does everything.  As this is a relatively new product to the marketplace (2016) we have this product to have less than a 1% error rate. Lithium Ion battery technology is proven and reliable.  The Directors of Premier Shades and many of the employees have the lithium battery motorised blinds in their own home.

The real question is how much and when. The lifecycle testing suggests that on Li-Ion batteries exhibit nominal annual degradation and that the degradation is consistent over time (i.e. there is no example so far where the batteries will unexpectedly/suddenly stop holding a charge). The batteries will degrade slowly over time the rate depends on load, environmental conditions, manufacturing and use. But they can hold a meaningful charge for the duration of their useful life (500 charges).

Rollease Acmeda and Somfy Motors offer an extended warranty of 5 year warranty on Automate Li-Ion motors. (Altus 28 has a 3 year warranty) See our details above on extended warranty.
