We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about blinds but we also want automated curtains in some of the rooms as they’ll be warmer in winter. As with automated blinds, one company seems to have the automated curtain market sewn up in this country: Silent Gliss. The Silent Gliss autoglide curtains are available from a number of sites including Simply Automate.

The most basic Dawn and Dusk model is most suited to automation - you can replace the dawn and dusk sensor with an X10 curtain controller. I ordered one of the curtain tracks (a 250cm one for 245 GBP), see Dawn and Dusk Autoglide Curtain Track. I didn’t get the X10 curtain controller (88 GBP) as we’re looking in to the VIOM for control applications at the moment.
