Advancements in smart home technology help homeowners create a more comfortable and secure place to call home. Many home amenities and decor are moving toward smart technology, so why not your window coverings? Hassling with tangled cords on hard-to-reach windows can be frustrating and could lead to potential injuries. Motorized shades can offer a multitude of advantages to help make your life easier. Here is everything you need to know on the benefits of creating a smarter home using shades with interior motorization.
Easy Remote Operation
Have you ever sat down to enjoy your favorite movie or TV show after a hard day and sunlight from your window started glaring on your screen? As a parent, your sleeping child may be on your lap and the last thing you want to do is get up to adjust your blinds. Motorized window coverings can offer a convenient solution.
Many shades built with interior motorization include a hand-held remote for easier operation. You can push a button on the device anywhere in your home for lifting and lowering the shades. This wireless system is able to operate within a 65-foot radius with no requirement to have a line of sight. You can choose to operate shades individually or all at once, depending on your needs. These battery-operated shades can be a cost-effective solution to creating greater convenience for a smarter home that fits your lifestyle.
Safety for Home, Children, and Pets
Tangled cords on your window coverings can create a dangerous safety hazard for small children and pets. Lifting heavy blinds and reaching for cords on higher windows can be dangerous for individuals with mobility issues. You can significantly reduce this risk by installing motorized window treatments.
These motorized window coverings can be programmed to lift and lower at set times or with a push of a button, no need to worry about dangling cords creating potential harm. Even your furnishings can be safe, protecting them from fading, discoloration, and other damage caused by sun exposure.
Increased Comfort Levels
Interior motorized shades can help you increase comfort within your home. They offer a layer of insulation to better regulate temperatures to lower monthly energy costs. They may also help you sleep better at night as any light seeping through your windows can disrupt your sleep patterns. With the ability to program your interior motorized shades, you’ll be able to control the light entering your home at all hours of the day.
