The Benefits of Motorized Blinds & Shades
Technology is touching each and every aspect of our lives. From refrigerators that keep your shopping list to heating systems that know your preferences and adjust accordingly, our homes are getting continually more technological. Our window treatments are also advancing technologically, including motorized shades and blinds. Here are just a few of the many benefits motorized blinds and shades bring to your home.
While opening your shades may not seem like an arduous task, wouldn’t you prefer to open them with a push of a button? Gone are the days of going from room to room to close and open your blinds. With a single push on the remote control, you can easily control each and every shade in your house!
If you have high ceilings or floor-to-ceiling windows, motorized blinds or shades mean you don’t have to get the stepladder out every time you wish to let in (or keep out) the sun.
Privacy & Security
Privacy is one of the most important things we need in our homes. We want to feel safe and secure in each room. Motorized blinds let you control the level of privacy quickly and easily.
If you’re heading out of town, security is a concern. You don’t want people to know you’re away if your blinds remain closed, especially during the day. With motorized shades, you can set your window treatments to a ‘random setting,’ which will automatically open and close your blinds at various points during the day. This will give your neighborhood (and any potential prowlers) the feeling that you’re actually at home.
Built-In Alarm Clock
Waking up in the morning is not always the easiest part of the day. The task is even harder if your shades are shut! With motorized shades, you can schedule them to open at a specific time and help you wake you up naturally with the sun.
Motorized shades are an investment. However, that initial investment can help you in a couple ways. First, those shades will make your home more energy efficient. With built-in automation and timers, you can schedule your blinds to open when the sun is at its highest to let in natural light, or schedule to close them to keep the sun’s heat out of your house at the hottest time of the day.
In addition, motorized shades can help you price your home higher when you’re ready to sell. As you prepare to put your house on the market, you’ll be looking for any way to get the most money out of its sale. By installing motorized shades and blinds now, you’ll be able to recoup your initial investment in home value.
Motorized blinds and shades provide you with the modern conveniences of this technological age. They also provide a built-in alarm clock, increase your home value, and allow you to have a renewed sense of security in your home.
