Are you considering motorized blinds or blinds for your home? Are you interested in motorized blinds but not quite sure what all the benefits are? If so, you’re in good company.
Many homeowners considering motorized window treatments are interested in some aspect of a motorized blind solution but aren’t quite sure if it’s worth the investment. Here we explore some of the main benefits that come with motorized window treatments to help you make an informed decision about what benefits you can expect from your motorized blinds or shades.
Comfort level of motorized blinds:
It’s hard to rank the benefits of motorized blinds or blinds in your home blinds, but if we had to pick one benefit that unites almost every owner of motorized blinds, it would be the convenience factor.
In recent years, advances in home automation have become even smarter and even more intuitive. You can get a robot to wash and sweep the floors, tell your dishwasher to start washing when all the guests have gone home and you’re in bed, and even program your thermostat to keep your home at your ideal temperature. Shouldn’t your window coverings make it to the home automation party? Fortunately, you’ll find that they’ve joined the party in a big way.
Window treatment motorization allows you to automate repetitive tasks (sometimes in hard-to-reach places!) that are crucial to the comfort of your home. Your motorized blinds allow you to adjust your window treatments at the touch of a button, at home, or remotely. Use one remote or smart device to control all of your motorized window treatments, or schedule blind settings to run automatically throughout the day.
Safety for motorized blinds:
Many devices today offer wireless as a selling point. Your cordless vacuum cleaner will prevent tangles and trips, while your wireless mouse will ensure a cleaner workspace. Most motorized blinds (including Venetian blinds, solar blinds, curtains, and pleated blinds) are also cordless – but those missing cords offer much more than just convenience.
Cords used to operate traditional blinds and shades can pose a hazard to children and pets. They look like fun toys, but they are a choking and strangulation hazard. Your motorized blinds are 100% cord and chain free and are a safe and comfortable solution for all members of your family, two or four-legged.
Create a smarter home:
As smart home solutions become more and more popular, chances are you already have a voice assistant, smart thermostat, smart fridge, or other connected devices at home. Motorized blinds, blinds, and curtains can work with these other smart products to create easy home automation and make your home much smarter. No matter where you are on the smart home spectrum, from novice to tech geek, there’s a smart shade solution for you. Smart Shading works with easy-to-use voice assistants and integrates with more robust third-party home automation systems.
Energy efficiency of motorized blinds:
If you’re interested in maximizing the energy efficiency of your home, motorized blinds may be just what you’ve been looking for. Opening and closing blinds does much more than just block or let light into a room. Let your blinds work for you and you can realize real savings when your utility bill comes. How?
Drawing shades on a gorgeous summer afternoon can seem counterintuitive. After all, you suffered through the winter just begging for the sun to come out. But what’s counterintuitive is running your air conditioner or fan at full blast at the same time you’re letting the sun into your home. Likewise, use the sun’s heat to heat your home in the winter and you can be very happy with the savings! Your motorized blinds give you a quick and convenient way to save energy and money, all while creating a more pleasant home environment. Even better, if you use a sensor or timer with your motorized blinds, you can automate your blinds to do it all for you, so you don’t even have to think about it.
