Automated window coverings have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years, and it’s not surprising. Being able to control your window treatments from anywhere in your home with just a touch of a button is worth a lot of attention. Plus, there are even more features and benefits besides automatic operation. So, if you’ve been wondering about adding automation to your home, we’ll go over some of the best reasons why you should add automation.
There needs to be as small of a learning curve as possible when using smart window treatments. Today’s motors offer high performance and are quieter than ever. Automation makes many types of shades and blinds more accessible to people who have difficulty with mobility. It’s also great to control coverings on high windows or behind furniture. Automation even gives you the freedom to control your window coverings using simple voice commands when you integrate it with your smart home system.
It Offers Protection
The ability to control your shades or drapes from anywhere allows you to open and close your window treatments to take advantage of the midday sun or to keep it out of your home. You’ll also be protecting your furniture and other interior items from becoming discolored by UV exposure. Automating your window treatments also gives you more personal security. Set schedules for your shades or blinds to close at dusk to prevent the outside from getting a view of the inside of your home. Controlling your shades while away from home can make your house look occupied even when it’s not. This can make would-be burglars more hesitant to target your residence.
It Can Lower Utility Costs
A large portion of everyone’s energy costs results from hot and cold sneaking through the glass of your windows. Using shades or drapes allows you to decide when the weather will affect your home’s temperature. This is especially true for insulating window treatments like cellular shades. Set a schedule for your blinds to tilt open in the morning and soak up the sunshine while you awaken gently instead of from a loud alarm.
You’ll Have a Safe, Clean Aesthetic
When you automate your window treatments, cords are no longer necessary. Dangling cords are a safety hazard and give your home a more cluttered look. Doing away with cords makes your home safer for young children and pets. Cordless window coverings offer a neater aesthetic. Adding smart window treatments will also increase the value of your home. Even if you don’t plan to sell in the near future, automation will give your home a more upscale appearance.
