We live in a day and age where technology has taken over. We have mini-computers at our fingertips and the ability to talk to a computer and actually have it respond. (Thanks, Alexa.) Embracing technology in the home can change your lifestyle significantly. Here are some reasons to add motorized blinds and shades to your home.
#1 Wake up to sunlight
Do you have to wake up at 6 AM sharp during the week? You probably want your bedroom to stay dark as possible throughout the night and right up until you have to begin your day. There’s no need to turn on the lights–your motorized blinds can be programmed to your schedule to let in that glowing morning light. By the time you’ve had your coffee, you head upstairs, and your bedroom has transformed itself. Your top down shades have lowered themselves just enough to invite in the natural light while still giving you the privacy you need to get yourself ready. And the weekends when you want to sleep in? That can be saved differently in your settings so your motorized blinds don’t move until you want them to.
I’m sure the idea of sleeping in on the weekends sounds blissful…especially if you have children. Room darkening motorized blinds and shades can help. Trying to put them to sleep at bedtime? Want them to sleep later in the morning? How about reducing nighttime wakeups? Blackout shades can be a lifesaver towards better sleep for your entire family. And, motorized blinds and shades can help make life so much easier. You’re in control of the atmosphere at the touch of a button. Tired of trying to wrangle your teens out of bed for school? Schedule your shades to get their day started. As the sun starts rising, they can, too.
#3 Enhanced Home Security
Motorized shades can be a part of a complete home automation system which means that you can even control your shades or blinds remotely. Or you can program your motorized shades to move up and down throughout the day at timely intervals, as it will help you create that impression that your home is always occupied even if you are hundreds of miles away from home.
#4 Energy Efficiency
Motorized blinds and shades are perfect for the energy efficiency they can offer. While motorized blinds certainly are a boost to your home’s aesthetics, they also provide real energy-saving benefits. During the wintertime, for example, you can use honeycomb shades within an automated system that roll down once you leave for work and rise when you arrive home so that you can enjoy your view. Honeycomb cellular shades are extremely effective at insulating the heat that is attempting to escape your home through windows. That way, you don’t have to spend as much on warming your residence during the cold season. When the temperatures once again warm up your blinds help reflect UV rays so that your home stays cool no matter how warm it is outside.
