Benefits of Motorized Shades and Blinds

Motorized window treatments may seem like something from the future, but they are available from Hunter Douglas now and offer a wide variety of benefits.

Motorized Blinds Are Safe and Easy to Operate

If you have children or pets you know how their curiosity can get the best of them sometimes. Unfortunately, this often leads to trouble. Figuring out how window treatments work can be fun, but if they have cords, it can also be dangerous. Motorized blinds and shades are cordless, making them safe for little ones and four-legged ones.

Having large windows offers a great view of the outdoors and lets in lots of natural light. But when you want shade or privacy, bigger windows require bigger window coverings, which become cumbersome to open and close. Motorization takes the hard work out of adjusting large window coverings. Simply push a button on a remote control or wall switch and the even the most unwieldy blinds move with ease.

Automated window treatments also make your home safer when you aren’t there. Whether you are at work for the day or on a week-long vacation, being able to move your horizontal blinds remotely makes it look like you’re home, discouraging would-be thieves from breaking into your home. Motorized shades can be scheduled to open and close during the day or they can be adjusted at any time using your mobile device anywhere there is wi-fi.

Motorized Blinds Are Safe and Easy to Operate

Many window treatments are out of reach, whether they are behind a piece of furniture or high up on a wall. This makes adjusting them inconvenient, and they are often left in one position instead of taking advantage of the energy efficiency they could provide. Opening shades during the day in the winter to let the sun in often eliminates the need for additional light and it helps to warm the inside of your home. Closing shades against the summer midday sun keeps the heat outside, reducing the energy needed to keep your home cool.

Making these adjustments are easy with motorized window treatments, regardless of where your windows are located, because they are operated by remote control, your smartphone, or whole-home automation system.

Do you want to take advantage of your honeycomb shades but get tired of opening and closing all of them every day? Or do you forget about blinds in rooms that you aren’t in frequently? Automation takes care of these issues too. Multiple window treatments can be adjusted at one time – even in different rooms – and you can schedule them to open and close at a certain time every day or according to your local sunrise and sunset.
