3 Reasons Why Motorisation For Roller Shutters Are A Must in Melbourne Home

Roller shutters are a popular choice for many Melbourne homes. On their own, they have a range of benefits, from privacy and security to home insulation and light control. To really enjoy all the benefits that these shutters have to offer, automation and motorisation are an essential addition, and here’s why.

1. Affordability

In the past, motorised shutters in Melbourne were considered an additional luxury for those who had the extra money to spend. Nowadays, the average Melbournian will find motorised shutters quite affordable.

2. Time-saving

The everyday Melbournian leads a busy life and, especially after the lockdowns, getting back into and maintaining a routine has been hard enough. Adding an extra 10 minutes to your ‘wind down’ routine at the end of the day running around manually winding down shutters wastes time and energy that you could be putting into yourself.

With a wall switch, remote control or smart home technology, relax and power your shutters at the push of a button, or even voice command.

3. Added security

While security shutters provide excellent security as an extra barrier that criminals will have difficulty getting through, smart automation systems are even more beneficial. When on holiday, shutters that remain down for days at a time could alert others that there is nobody home and tempt break-ins.

With smart home automation, control shutters from afar and program shutters to open and close as would be regularly used to create the illusion of someone being home.

Security Plus Shutters, Doors & Blinds have partnered with the most trusted names in smart home automation such as Somfy, OzRoll and moto TUBULAR MOTORS to provide the best motorisation and automation options for Melbourne homes.
