TV lifts have diversified and grown in popularity in recent years, and with this growing demand, manufacturers have continuously developed faster, smarter, and more convenient devices. While it goes without saying that TV lifts are innovative devices that would modernize any home, there are more reasons beyond the novelty factor that make them so worthwhile. These automated lifts are activated with low-power electric linear actuators for ultimate mobility. This article will convey the top benefits of a TV lift system and why you should have one in your home!
Electronic TV Lifts: How They Function
Before we jump into the benefits of TV lifts, we will go through how exactly these devices work. TV lifts have a pretty simple construction as a whole and as mentioned, the operation of any electronic television lift is based on a linear drive. In this case the linear drive is an electric linear actuator. In its design, a lead screw is most often used to create linear displacement. The motors used in linear actuators, in most cases, are classic 12V or 24V direct current collector motors. In the case of lifting TV cabinets, a voltage of 12V is usually sufficient. Our drop-down TV lifts are constructed with a track linear actuator as the core feature, moving your TV along its track as you extend or retract it. On the other hand, our pop-up TV lifts are designed similar to a lifting column as its core feature, raising your TV from your furniture or flooring.
Types of TV Lifts
There are different types of TV lifts to choose from, all powered by various electric linear actuators. We have outlined four of the most popular below:
Drop-Down TV Lifts
This type of TV lift is perfect for fixing your TV to your ceiling, bringing it down on command. It is an effective space saver and is easy to fit into the construction of a room as it requires no floor space, only room to drop down from the ceiling with no obstruction. If you have a strong, firm ceiling, this is a great option that wouldn’t get in the way of any other furniture you have.
Pop-Up TV Lifts
An alternative to the drop-down solutions, these lifts can be used to raise a TV up from the floor. Such lifts can be conveniently built into special panelling, various furniture types, or even the floor itself (if planning allows it). You can then simply raise the TV from its outlet via a remote control.
Up-&-Down Motorized TV Lifts
The best of both worlds, these are among the most convenient options in our range as they can either be mounted to the floor or within a piece of furniture, or mounted to the ceiling. A very popular format, this makes your place more futuristic in terms of design and your viewing experience more practical, as you can control the height of the television.
TV Swivel Systems
Swivel TV lifts give you the ability to watch the TV from multiple angles from multiple corners of the room. Such systems can allow you to turn your TV 360 degrees to conveniently watch it from any side. A great option for studio apartments and large open domestic spaces.
Why Automate Your Home with TV Lifts?
One of the major reasons for acquiring TV lift furniture is to save space. This aspect is especially relevant for compact spaces, where the occupant is looking to optimize all possible space. Using a motorized lift, you can hide your television out of sight completely, giving you can get free space in any room, be it living room, bedroom, kitchen, or even bathroom. By upgrading your TV with a motorized TV lift, your interior becomes space-saving and multifunctional. There are many ways you can use TV lifts to save space – take a look at some ideas on our blog.
TV lifts are convenient devices that are plug-and-play, and easily accessible. You can access your secured TV with the simple push of a button and hide it just as easily. These devices were designed for convenient use and to make the lives of the users easier overall.
It can be difficult for parents to limit their children's access to certain household items, and the television is no exception. There are two aspects of safety that can be covered with TV lifts – from the physical TV itself and from the content within it. To safeguard your device and also protect children from accidents, hiding your TV when required is a useful tool. Further to this, it is also a great way of stopping people from watching TV (including your kids), with the TV lift hardware’s automated mechanism locking away and hiding it when required.
There isn’t always room or interior ability to install a TV in your desired location, such as on the wall. If your TV simply stands on a surface such as a cabinet, there is always a great risk of it falling or being damaged. Motorized TV lifts help greatly in these situations. With a linear actuator powered TV lift, you can safeguard your fragile electronics from any harm, minimizing the risks of physical damage. Thus, you can hide the TV behind a panel or inside a piece of furniture with a pop-up lift, mount it to the ceiling with a drop-down lift, or turn its screen toward the wall or some piece of furniture with a swivel system.
As you can see, a TV lift is a useful device that will help you organize a spacious, minimalistic, and ultramodern interior. Either hang it from the ceiling, hide it inside a panel in front of your bed, or build it into a wardrobe, your TV will be better protected, well hidden from unwanted access, and more convenient to watch as a whole.
