Traversing AND Rotating the same Vertical Blinds:
- To traverse and rotate the same vertical blind requires two (2) Model 80 motors.

- Replace it with a UL Listed replacement outlet that can accept both motors.
- An alternate solution is to use your own extension cord and simply plug both motors into the cord outlets.

Motorized Window Blinds SupplierReview by Ann
For some, the major benefit of having a motorized blinds is convenience. With just pressing the button, opening and closing of shades, drapes or blinds are done in a quick snap. In this way, you don't have to move away from your office table to close the shades if the sun is striking hot and when it gets too bright. All you have to do is get the remote control and close them. You get to save yourself on time and effort when you have automatic blinds.
