Motorized Shades and Blinds

Motorized Shades and Blinds

Motorized Shades and Blinds may seem like an extravagance, but after just a few days with them in your home, you will wonder how you ever lived without them.

Lighting defines a home. Some rooms benefit from their large, expansive windows, while other rooms may have smaller windows that don’t let in much light at all. Depending on which direction the room faces, you may find that in the morning the sun is bright, or reflects off surfaces with an uncomfortable glare. In the afternoon, the sun may find a way to make your new television unwatchable because of its reflection.

In other words, every room has its own character with respect to how we want to allow light in. Motorized shades and blinds can help define that character into a thing of beauty.

Privacy and Comfort with Motorized Shades and Blinds
If you currently have blinds, you may find that you are always adjusting them as the sun moves across the sky, and dealing with them as it shines at different angles throughout the year. In addition, at night you most likely want all your blinds closed for privacy, or you may want a few blinds open a bit to make the house look “lived in” for security reasons. All this means lots of moving blinds around. With motorized shades and blinds, you can forget about running around pulling cords, twisting rods, and dealing with temperamental spring-loaded roller blinds. Modern motorized shades and blinds are quiet and efficient – controlled with a simple remote control or wall switch to raise them, lower them, or even shift them to a preset height and angle.

Reduced Heating and Cooling Expenses with Motorized Shades and Blinds 
In addition, an automated system can also save heating and cooling costs, by using the blinds to keep out the hot sun in the summer, or help keep the heat in the house in the winter. For even more convenience, they can be controlled by a home automation system to automatically adjust throughout the day, and throughout the year, to keep the sun out of your eyes but keep your rooms well lit and comfortable.Consider a medium-sized home. You may have dozens of blinds throughout the house. Even the most diligent homeowner probably only sets them in the morning and the evening, and even then only the blinds in major rooms are adjusted. It’s certainly a chore.
With motorized shades and blinds, setting the blinds is simply a flick of a switch in each room, a selection on a centralized remote control, or with home automation, no action from the homeowner at all. Comfort and privacy and one less thing to worry about every day.
