Outdoor Electric Blinds

Whether you're seeking to create stylish and highly functional spaces indoors or a lovely sun-shielded outdoor oasis, Lex Blinds' outdoor electric blinds and shades assortment provides ultimate solutions. The best part here is that with modern fabrics and remote-control mechanisms, you can not only create a stylish and functional home but save some resources (and money) too. Here you will find the essential perks of investing in innovative exterior electric shades and can take a quick look at some of the most popular exterior electric blinds solutions.

Exterior Electric Blinds – Smart Solutions for Your Home


Those looking to create a smart home or upgrade their space to be more functional are increasingly interested in electric outdoor shades. While there are many different solutions (for windows, doors, patios or balconies), they all have something in common. Apart from appealing design and top-notch natural light control features, they elevate functionality in many more ways and allow you to use resources wisely.

Here are some of the essential perks you should know about our electric external window blinds (UK):

  • Better Insulation: Electric exterior blinds provide an additional layer of insulation; thus, you can maintain a more consistent indoor temperature, reducing the strain on heating and cooling systems. Regarding insulation, we should mention noise reduction too.
  • Enhanced Heat & Harmful UV Rays Protection: Innovative materials not only block excessive sunlight, but they also provide quality protection from harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture from fading. As shades are mounted outdoors, they are even more efficient in blocking heat and maintaining a cooler environment (which is especially helpful during hot summer days).
  • Saved Resources & Reduced Expenses: When there’s better thermal efficiency and insulation, naturally, you don’t have to try so hard to maintain optimal temperature – no need for excessive air conditioning and heating. In the long run, you save considerable amounts of energy and enjoy lower expenses.
  • Space Efficiency: Since electric outdoor window blinds are mounted on the exterior, you save valuable indoor space. Also, the idea of no pulls and cords indoors idea makes spaces more secure if there are kids or pets. Even if you’re after solutions for patios or balconies, a modern pergola is way more efficient than, for instance, a patio umbrella – a retractable shading system mechanism is way more efficient, especially when space is at a premium.


Needless to say, remotely controlled exterior motorised blinds can significantly contribute to your home privacy. Shades work as an additional layer of privacy, and by being able to control them, whether at home or away, you can protect your belongings from prying eyes anytime.

Knowing these automatic outdoor window blinds perks, it’s hard to deny that it’s one of the most cost-effective window treatment solutions in the market. As regards various solutions, here at Lex Blinds, we offer various customised options for different needs and spaces. Read on and get to know some of the most popular exterior motorised blinds and shades to elevate your home or outdoor living space design and functionality.

Popular Types of Outdoor Electric Blinds and Shades for Home


Choosing any of our modern products equipped with cutting-edge technology, you can enjoy a perfect balance of light and shade without ever leaving your seat. From sleek design roller blinds to full-fledged privacy and sun control systems, from solutions to reduce glare and heat to blackout options for complete privacy – we have plenty to offer. Here are some of the most popular choices.

External Roller Blinds


Outdoor electric roller blinds might be one of the most popular outdoor-mounted window treatment solutions. A simple rolling mechanism is a key feature that offers easy light control and a sleek modern design, which complements any style spaces, windows, or other openings of different sizes.

Exterior electric shades are easy to match with other indoor window treatment solutions. For instance, you can have functional outdoor roller shades and a light sheer net or lace curtains indoors.

Waterproof, UV and heat-resistant fabrics create a shield from harmful UV rays and maintain an optimal temperature. By no means remote control mechanism is unquestionably more comfortable considering hard-to-reach windows. As for the skylights, it’s worth looking at electric roof blinds.

Roller Shutters   


Aluminium external electric shutters are often considered for enhanced security, an extra home protection layer against harsh weather conditions and potential intruders. Also, this one is an excellent solution if you’re looking for better insulation against noise and temperature fluctuations.

A robust yet modern aesthetic design is all about functionality. With such remote-control outdoor blinds, you have peace of mind, coupled with long-term energy savings. Needless to say – a full-fledged exterior design as well.

Outdoor Venetian Blinds


Motorised external Venetian blinds design allows adjusting the slats for desired visibility and privacy. Here you have a whole different way to create a desired atmosphere during the day and night times – adjust the slats precisely to your desired level and enjoy a dimmed but still light-filled atmosphere or a complete darkness perfect for quality sleep.

Regarding unique design, indoor-mounted Venetian blinds also allow for more nuanced light and privacy control. Yet, outdoor electric window shades stop the heat and sun’s glare from outside, making this option even more efficient in regulating temperature.

These are some of the most popular exterior electric blinds, but we have more motorised solutions for stylish and highly functional homes or offices. Want a full-fledged solution to increase energy efficiency and privacy – look at our sun control system (Lamels) options. Have problems with annoying insects and dust from outdoors – combine our light control solutions with modern motorised insect screens (you can opt for solar shading fabrics that can increase UV protection up to 75%!).

Popular Types of Exterior Electric Shades for Outdoor Living


When it comes to outdoor electric blinds and shades, it’s wise to consider a full package – innovative inventions for a comfortable home and outdoor living. Regarding the latter, a few electric shading systems are increasingly popular among those creating cosy and functional outdoor living areas (whether a spacious patio or a tiny balcony).

  • Custom motorised outdoor awning: Retractable motorized awnings are among the top choices for shading patios and balconies. It’s not only an inviting touch to outdoor living spaces – this automated shading system provides effective shelter from mild rain, heat, harmful UV rays.
  • Made-to-Measure Pergolas: Pergolas fitted with retractable covers are increasingly popular for many reasons, but one of them is that they are versatile standalone structures that can be customised to blend seamlessly with outdoor landscaping – for instance, when creating an arbour for an outdoor patio or even a carport. Innovative solutions provide efficient light and heat control and, needless to mention, protection from rain and wind.


Want to extend your living area and the usability and comfort of your outdoor oasis during various weather conditions? Well, such electric outdoor shades solutions are definitely worth the investment.

Remote Control Outdoor Blinds Solutions


Motorised outdoor blinds offer various control options to suit the different needs of modern homeowners. Here are some of the most popular solutions to consider when choosing Lex Blinds' window treatments or outdoor living space remote-control shading systems.


  1. Remote Control: A handheld remote is perhaps the most straightforward method to operate your electric outdoor blind. Control electric exterior shades with a push of a button from a distance.
  2. Smartphone Apps: Some systems can be controlled through dedicated smartphone apps. Now, this option is already better as you can operate blinds from anywhere (with an internet connection).
  3. Smart Home Systems Integration: For the utmost convenience, integrate your window treatments with smart home systems (e.g., Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Apple HomeKit). Enjoy effortless window treatment control with voice commands and include blinds in smart home routines – for instance, set your shades to automatically open at sunrise or close when a specific temperature is reached.

 
In some cases, there's a possibility to integrate sensors for sunlight, temperature, or even wind. This means your window treatments or outdoor living space shading systems will operate according to environmental conditions without manual intervention.
 
Using a smartphone app or controlling exterior electric window shades via a smart home program, you can enjoy the additional benefits of timers and scheduling features. Want to save on air conditioning? Set your blinds to close when optimal temperature is reached or during the hottest part of the day. Working on solutions for enhanced security? Schedule shading systems to operate at specific times, giving the impression that someone is home even if you're on vacation abroad.
