Smart home sophistication with Motionblinds

Get smart in a minute!

Curtain & Blind Co are excited to offer a new way to motorise our Express roller blinds. Available now*, Motionblinds innovative motorisation solution provides all the privacy, comfort and convenience you could ask for via smartphone app, a smart hub such as Google Home or Apple HomeKit, or a simple pull of the chain!

You can set schedules and automations locally using the Eve smartphone app or from anywhere utilising Thread. Thread is a mesh network technology that makes your smart home more responsive, robust, and increases its reach.

MotionBlinds motorisation works with Apple HomeKit (via HomePod or an Apple TV) thanks to its support for Thread. MotionBlinds can also work with other smart home platforms including Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings via Matter, the new smart home standard.

It’s really easy to automate your blind’s functionality, with scheduled opening / closing and positions all pre-set to suit your daily routine. And you can sync to other smart home devices to manage a whole host of connected devices at once!

With a rechargeable battery tucked away inside the blind roller tube, installation is as quick and easy as with any of our DIY roller blinds. And recharging is a cinch using the provided USB-C cable, although with typical use, only a handful of charges should be required each year (this may differ based on blind size).

When ordered, Motionblind motors come pre-installed in your Express roller blind, making them ready to go via seamless integration into an existing smart home set up. A thread border router is required in order to use automations and remote control. The most commonly owned border routers include:


  • Apple TV 4K (2nd Gen)
  • HomePod 2
  • HomePod Mini


  • Nest Hub
  • Nest Hub Max
  • Google Wifi


  • Echo (4th Generation)
  • Echo Hub

If you’re unsure whether you own or need a Thread border router, please contact our team and we’d be happy to assist.

Key features include:

Matter enabled via Thread
Motionblind motors are future-proofed for smart home advancements. The motors run on the latest Thread-over-Matter technology, so your blinds can be controlled via Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings and of course, Apple HomeKit with no need for clunky bridges!

Superior control anytime, anywhere
Use your app, smart device or gently pull on the smart chain to set the perfect position of your blinds. And no matter where you are, you’ll always be able to control your blinds.

Smarter flexible scheduling
All operation schedules are stored in the motor, so your blinds can also get on with their job independently of any home hub, smart device or internet connection. And you can rest easy knowing your data is kept 100% private, thanks to local communication.

Combine multiple smart home-enabled accessories in a single scene and save yourself a heap of hassle. For instance, a “Good Night” scene can close your blinds and switch off all the lights in your home with a single command.

Ordering a Motionblind motorised roller is super simple…

  • Measure the space as you would for any roller blind (pro tip, use our measuring guide)
  • Select your preferred single ‘Express roller blind’ from our range (currently only single Express roller blinds can be motorised with Motionblinds motors)
  • Select the Motionblind motorisation option while finalising your order
  • We’ll fit and charge the motor while we make your roller blind, so it will be ready to go once installation is completed!

We’re extremely excited to expand our Express range roller blind motorisation options to include this cutting-edge advancement in the smart home field. If you’re in the market for the ultimate in roller blind technology, look no further than our Motionblinds motorisation option.

If you have any questions about motorising your new roller blinds, please get in touch and we’d be happy to assist.
