This is the age of smart technology, part of our modern lifestyle that we rely on more and more. Time spent at home is increasingly made easier by automated systems and appliances. Motorized window treatments can be programmed to work in sync with your lights, temperature controls, and entertainment system. It’s obvious that motorized window treatments provide convenience, but you may not have considered some of the less obvious benefits. Here is an overview of them:
A Touch of a Switch Gives you Instant Privacy
Even if your neighbors are not into peeking through your windows, you may be visible to them in your bathroom or bedroom. With automated blinds or drapes, it’s easy just to flick a switch and cover your windows before showering or preparing for bed.
Don’t Start Your Day with that Annoying Alarm Clock
Instead of putting your pillow over your head when your loudly ringing alarm goes off, program your blackout shades to let in the natural morning light. Mother Nature will put you in a happier mood that will stay with you throughout the working day.
They Make it Easier to Go Green
Does the sun invade certain rooms during the day? Maintaining a cool house is expensive. You can decrease your energy consumption by cultivating a shade-providing tree in your yard, placing solar panels on your roof, and providing your residence with automated window treatments and awnings.
A Green Home is More Valuable
A green home is a functionally efficient residence. If you get a new job and have to move, you will find it easier to sell your house or apartment.
Protect What You Value
You can protect valuable wall art, upholstery, and carpeting from fading by programming your shades to close automatically during the part of the day with the most sun. Also, do away with operational cords that your young child or pet kitten could get tangled up in.
Fool a Burglar
You can set your shades to automatically behave as if you were at home while you’re away on vacation. If a potential intruder is “sussing” out your house, he will go elsewhere.
Kindle Your Partner’s Interested in Redecorating
Make installing motorized window treatments a fun project that a couple can work on together. The technology-minded individual can get fascinated by how automated window shades work and the more artistic-minded partner can choose styles and fabrics.
Don’t Dwell as Much on the Weather
Leave the reaction to the weather to your shades. Does a cloudy morning transform into a sunny day? Sun sensors on your blinds will automatically cause them to lower even if you’re away from home. And with your shades operating efficiently based on the level of sunlight, your home will be kept at a comfortable temperature with no effort on your part.
Have a Romantic Evening in Mind?
It’s Valentine’s Day, and you need some mood lighting? With the click of a switch, your window shades will respond and lower, and lights will simultaneously dim to create an ideal ambiance to go with the chocolate and flowers.
Go All Out and Create a Home Theater
In one swoop, the blinds will draw, your lights will dim, and your entertainment system will turn on. Why not go to town and transform your den into a complete home theater? Be creative and install comfortable velvet chairs, and a popcorn machine?
