    Automated blinds

    I am interested to see if there is a way to make the blinds in my apartment able to be controlled remotely? Does anybody know how this could be done without hiring a monkey?

    Are you talking about venetian blinds?

    You can purchase both blinds and drapes that have a remote control to open and close. Here are some examples:

    I've recently been looking into this for myself as well ... my blinds are wooden and heavy so I'm not certain ... but there are motorized aftermarket attachments you can buy with remote. Been looking on ebay. Might do better to actually visit a blinds store and ask. Youtube has a lot of DIY info too.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    They would be for venetian blinds. I looked on the site for Somfy, and the prices seem a bit higher then what I'm interested in spending ($300+/window).
