With the push of one button, you can control every shade in the room simultaneously. What a time saver! And those hard to reach windows? Not a problem anymore. You don’t even have to get off that comfy sofa.
Whether you have a bathroom on the first floor or on the second, closely situated neighbors can require privacy. Hit a switch to lower your blinds before you head to the shower or at night when you are getting ready for bed.
INCREASE YOUR HOME’S VALUE
Green features that improve a home’s efficiency, while maximizing functionality are always desirable. Also, home automation is becoming increasingly popular, which means installing motorized window treatments will not only help you save on your bills and make your life easier, it will also make your home more valuable when you are ready to sell. See what other projects can also increase the value of your home.
FORGET THE ALARM CLOCK
Trade in that alarm for a wakeup call from Mother Nature. Set your shade to open and let in the light when it’s time to get up. Warning: you may be in a good mood all day long!
PROTECT WHAT’S MOST PRECIOUS
Motorization means no operational cords for pets or curious children to get tangled in. Also, you’ll be able to better protect your furniture, upholstery and wall art from fading by having the shades close automatically during the sunniest part of the day. While it’s understood that taking sun safety precautions is important outside, few people realize they can sustain sun damage indoors, too.
With home automation systems you can simulate presence by scheduling operation of your window treatments while you are away on holidays or business trips, or even when leaving for just one evening or a weekend. No one will be the wiser that it isn’t you operating those shades. Deter the would-be intruders by making it look like you are home even when you are not.
QUIT THINKING ABOUT THE WEATHER & JUST ENJOY IT
Your shades can follow the weather and react to changing elements all by themselves. An overcast morning turns into a sunny day? Equipped with a sun sensor, your blinds will lower even if you are out enjoying the weather. And having your shades automatically raise or lower accordingly to the sun helps to manage heat gain in the summer months and heat loss during the winter.
TURN YOUR FAMILY ROOM INTO A HOME THEATER
Draw the blinds, start your entertainment system and dim the lights with one gesture. If you have extra room you can take it even further and create a real home theater, complete with velvet chairs, curtains, popcorn machine and all!
