Motorized Shades in Richmond Hill, ON


Serving Richmond Hill, Aurora, Newmarket, & Surrounding Area


Almost any kind of window treatment can be motorized including: blinds, shutters, shades and draperies. Conveniently close or open all your blinds or shades at the same time, perfectly positioned and aligned from a remote, wall switch or a mobile device. Create scenes where the blinds open in the morning when you wake up, close when you leave for work and open automatically when you come home.

Whether it's PowerView by Hunter Douglas, MotionView by Shade-O-Matic, or Somfy which is used by both Graber and MaxxMar, we've got your motorization needs covered.

Why Motorization?

There are many benefits to motorizing your window coverings:

  • Daily Convenience & Time Saver:  People spend an average of 34-40 hours a year manually opening, closing, and adjusting their window treatments.  Reclaim that time with motorization.
  • Home Security Booster: Program your window treatments to go up and down throughout the day or evening from anywhere in the world to signal activity in your home while you are away.
  • Reduce Energy Costs:  Significantly reduce the money invested in the heating and cooling of your home by programming your window treatments to be to be opened during the day in the winter and closed during the day in the summer.
  • Day-to-Day Safety:  Eliminate the chance of falling while manually operating your window treatments; stop risking injury while contorting your body to access hard to reach cords; prevent children from getting tangled in cords.

Motorization Technology Options

Gotcha Covered provides a wide assortment of options to motorize many different types of blinds, shades and drapery using either Somfy, Shade O Matic MortionView or Hunter Douglas PowerView technologies.

Battery Operated: A battery operated self-contained motorization system is one option that is easily installed.  Use a remote control for point and click operation of the window treatments.   AA Batteries typically last one to one and a half years, C batteries last approximately 5 years; both are easily changed as needed. 

DC Powered (low voltage): The DC power supplied motorization systems plug into any standard household outlet.  There would be a wire that runs from the motor of the shade to the outlet.  Or, for a more visually appealing variation, connect the electricity inside the wall and hide the cord within the drywall.

Solar Powered:  A solar powered blind is powered by a battery charged solar cells (charged by the sun) and is often the best choice when the window covering is mounted in a high window where changing the batteries are difficult.   With this option however, you must make sure that the location of the blind receives enough sunlight.

No matter the electricity source (battery, DC, or solar) for the motorization, it can be operated with wireless technology.  Options for controls are remote controls, wall switches, or the hub if you’re using an app/smartphone. Regardless, the technology is smart enough to not have to be pointed directly at the receiver on the motorized window coverings in order to adjust them.

Communication signals from wireless devices in very large spaces may not always reach the intended receiver. This range limitation is similar to trying to use a garage door opener from five blocks away.  For applications that require the greatest reliability, hard-wired systems are recommended.
