Today, motorized shades and blinds are often highly regarded in the home automation niche. With the addition of a motorized rod or track, they can take your home’s beauty, convenience, protection and comfort to new heights. After all, do you really want to be stuck in the last century by spending time to roll up your traditional blinds in the morning and roll down your shades in the evening?
It’s just plain inconvenient to hustle around your house checking on your window treatments when smart technology can bring you a few clicks away from managing your blinds and shades electronically. If you are contemplating whether to invest in motorized blinds or shades, here are five reasons why you should get them:
Elegant Design and Classy Touch
Motorized shades today come in many elegant designs that can fit the interior design of your home effortlessly. Talking about effort, I’m sure you remember how many times you need to tug at your traditional blinds or shades to get them to line up into the position you desire accurately. When you get motorized blinds, these gems can move in a single fluid movement to the correct position. As for traditional draperies, you no longer need to deal with those messy rope pull cords. Classy move, isn’t it?
Imagine you are sitting on your coach watching soap opera and just when things start to get emotional, you see your neighbor peeking through your window. Don’t you wish you can just press a button and close your window blinds to shut that nosy fellow out? Well, with motorized blinds, you can certainly do that.
Enjoy a Higher Level of Convenience
If you have many windows installed in your home, manually closing and opening your blinds and shades can be a real hassle in the long run. By opting to install motorized shades, you will be able to calibrate them with a centralized control system which allows you to lower and raise them at the touch of a button or at scheduled intervals. Such modern conveniences in your home are always welcomed, aren’t they?
Enhanced Home Security
As mentioned earlier, many motorized shades are part of a complete home automation system which means that you can even control your shades or blinds remotely. This definitely helps to beef up your home security as forgetting to close your blinds when you leave for work can be easily resolved with an app on your smartphone. You can also program your motorized shades to move up and down throughout the day at timely intervals, as it will help you create that impression that your home is always occupied even if you are more than a hundred miles away from home.
Make More Energy Savings
Solar gain is heat that passes through your window panes when the sunlight is strong. This occurrence can make your air conditioner work overtime. You can install a sun sensor along with your motorized blinds to signal them to close automatically when the sun is at its brightest during the day. Not only are you making more energy savings, but you will also be able to facilitate better furniture protection when you keep the sunlight at bay from your upholstery.
