Motorized Wood Blinds With Lift

Does anyone know of a company that offers motorized wood or faux wood blinds that the lift and tilt are both motorized? All I can seem to find are motorized tilt for woof blinds. I found a video of a motorized lift on you tube but there was no info on it. Thanks!

Go to the Somfy site to find a retail location. They make motorization for everything:

Thanks. I was hoping there were some brands that I could price online without having to go to a B&M. I hate talking to people face to face :-)

I don't think you're going to find any online. That option is totally custom and would have to be added on by a motorization company, such as Somfy.
If they don't have to be wood or faux wood, there are other type of blinds available with the motorized lift, online.

That sounds expensive and we don't want that :-) I know there are other options that lift, but my wife and I are partial to blinds for our application.

Anyone know of options that are cordless with motorized tilt?

Just tried the type you linked and it says cordless can't be motorized. I'm guessing the tilt mechanism can't work with cordless.

Sorry, I just came up with that doing a google search.
Nothing else came up. You may have to settle for corded with a motorized tilt only.
A couple of installers post on here once in awhile. Maybe they know of a company, but I'm doubtful.
