Motorised blinds: The uses and the facts.

Motorising your window allows you to automate a repetitive task (sometimes in hard-to-reach areas!) that is key to the comfort of your home.

Your motorised blinds allow you to adjust your window with the touch of a button, at home and remotely. Use one remote or smart device to control all of your motorised window, or schedule your blind adjustments to automatically occur throughout the day.

The cords used to operate traditional blinds and shades can be a hazard to children and pets. They seem like fun playthings, when in reality, they are choking and strangling hazards. Your motorised blinds are 100% cord and chain free, and are the safe solutions.

If you are interested in maximizing your home’s energy efficiency, motorised blinds may be just what you’ve been looking for. Opening and shutting your blinds is about much more than simply blocking or letting light into a room.

It may feel wrong to draw the shades on a gorgeous summer afternoon. However, what is actually counterintuitive is to run the air-conditioning or fan at full blast at the same time that you are allowing sun to stream into your home. Similarly, in the winter, leverage the heat of the sun to warm your home and you may find yourself very happy with the savings! Your motorised blinds provide you with a quick and convenient way to save energy and money, all while creating a more pleasant home environment. Better yet, if you use a sensor or timer with your motorised blinds, you can automate your blinds to do this all for you, so you don't even have to think about it.

Away for the weekend? Motorizing your window blinds can be a way to increase the appearance of someone being at home: When something about your home changes, be it a light or the position of your blinds, it may makes it appear as if someone has recently been in the home. This may prevent someone from taking an unauthorized peek.

When you are away, place your blinds on a timer, or simply change the position from your smart device a few times a week. (As we discuss above, in order to reap the most from your motorized blinds, ideally you would be raising and lowering the shades multiple times in time with the sun, so increased security is just an added benefit!)

Struggling to wake up in the mornings? Set timers for your motorised blinds to allow maximum light input.

With an array of different home hubs that can be hooked up to Alexa or Google, or simply can be controlled by your phone, there are many different ways you can get your blinds to be completely bespoke to you.
