Window Blinds and Home Automation

Window Blinds and Home Automation

Have you ever settled into bed for a good night’s sleep, only to realize you forgot to close the blinds and have to get up again? Thanks to modern home automation, this and many similar problems all fade away. If you’re updating the window blinds on your Durham, NC home, you should look into finding options that are compatible with home automation systems.

Most home-automated blinds have great features like:

  • Smartphone and remote control use that’s intuitive and user-friendly
  • Numerous style, shape, size and color options to match your window, décor and preferences
  • Cordless power for child and pet-friendly use
  • Advanced scheduling controls that help maintain a consistent home temperature and reduce energy bills
  • Ability to adjust to the changing sunrise and sunset every day
  • Hidden battery packs and cords for streamlined appearance but simple installation and operation

Motorized blinds and other automated window options offer tons of incredible benefits that will make your home more comfortable, safe, valuable, and beautiful. First of all, motorized blinds are downright convenient. You can raise or lower your blinds with a touch of a button, or even through an app on your smart phone or tablet. You can easily control one blind at a time, or move the entire set all at once to customize how much or how little light you want to let into a room. They are also convenient as they will help save you the time of closing or opening all your blinds one at a time.

Home automation compatible blinds can also help you save on your energy bill. You can set timers through the remote or app to raise or lower the blinds depending on the sun if you’re at work, or even out of town on vacation. This added sun blockage will help make your home cooler in the summer, letting your air conditioner take a break and your energy usage take a dive. Motorized blinds also work the other way, and can be set to open in the winter to allow extra sunlight in to keep your home warm and comfortable.

If you have floor to ceiling windows, or windows that are otherwise hard to reach, motorized blinds are a blessing. You don’t have to get out a stepstool or climb on the windowsill to operate them, as the automation takes care of everything for you. Motorized blinds are also ideal for those with disabilities or the elders, as they make it easier to open and close the window without having to get out of a wheelchair or operate cords.
