Motorized shades will bring a whole new level of convenience into your life. Some people might view these shades as a luxury, but they are truly becoming common household elements.
Here are some benefits of using motorized shades.
They enhance security
Motorized blinds willenhance the security in your home. You can avoid intrusion by making your home look like it is occupied. If you are going on vacation and you want your home to look like you are there, you can simply schedule a time during the day for your shades to go up or down. Motorized shades truly give a home the appearance someone is always there. Burglaries are always a worry when away on a business trip or on a vacation, but you can completely eliminate this worry by using motorized shades.
They protect the inside of your home from the sun
Sure, the sun is great, but it can fade the colors of your furniture, carpet, wood flooring, artwork and other interior decors if it streams into your home for hours on end. Did you know that you can set up motorized shades to close if the sun becomes too strong? Motorized shades have so many settings and capabilities. Some motorized shades come with a sun sensor that is needed for this setting, while with others you may have to purchase this feature separately.
If you have very high windows that are hard to reach, motorized blinds will take care of that problem. Maybe you want to close your upstairs shades, but you don’t want to walk all the way upstairs at the moment – motorized blinds will take care of that problem, too. If you are about to watch a movie and are comfortable on the couch, but the sun is glaring on the TV screen, you can fix that with the mere push of a button.
If you have children, then you understand that regular blinds and shades can be hazardous. A child can easily get tangled up in the cord and it can be life-threatening. Blinds that come with a manual bead chain are the most dangerous for both children and pets, because once the cord gets wrapped around something, it is very hard to untangle it.
Motorized shades are cordless, so you will never need to worry about this situation. Your children and pets will both be safe.
More freedom for the elderly and disabled
Elderly people tend to need more help doing everyday things. Getting up to open or close the shades is one of them. Elderly people might also want to sleep in later or go to bed earlier, and they will want to open and close the shades accordingly. Motorized shades can take care of all of this. With the touch of a remote control or a time schedule for the shades, your elderly folks can open and close the blinds as many times as they like, without getting up.
Motorized shades are also a safety measure for the elderly, as manually opening and closing shades can be difficult for people with balance and mobility problems. If a window is hard to reach, losing balance and falling can happen.
Arthritis is also something that can hinder easily opening and closing blinds. Arthritis can make it difficult to grip something, which would make opening and closing the blinds almost impossible. Motorized shades can help people with arthritis be able to do these common tasks.
People of all ages have disabilities that stop them from living independently. Motorized shades help those people continue to live their lives without help from others.
Maximize the space in your home
Manual shades often take up a lot of room. If you don’t have this kind of space in your home and you are trying to figure out what to do, consider getting motorized shades. They are usually quite thin and you won’t have to worry about them taking up excess space around your windows.
Your home is a place where you can relax and unwind after a long day. Bare windows can take away some of your privacy, and you might not realize it. It’s easy to forget to close the blinds after a long day, but if you do forget, everyone can see in your home.
Motorized shades can fix this problem. By creating a time schedule for your shades to go up or down, you’ll never have to think twice about your shades. They will go up and down automatically without you having to move a muscle.
People love the way that motorized shades look. No ugly cords or chains! When you get motorized shades, they will be measured to fit your windows exactly. You can find lots of styles and fabrics that will complement your home and create the look you’ve been dreaming about.
Motorized shades are made to last. Their technology, along with their elegant material, is made to be a forever feature in your home. You will not have to worry about replacing your motorized shades a few years after purchasing them – they will last for years to come. And, if you do need a change, you can get different shades while still keeping the motorization technology.
Smart Home integration
Motorized shades are part of Smart Home integration. Other appliances, like lights, thermostats, and smart locks are also important elements of a Smart Home. Once you purchase a variety of smart devices, you will be able to control almost every aspect of your home from your smart phone. You will be able to open and close your blinds as well as raise or lower when you aren’t even home.
