The Benefits of Motorized Blinds and Shades and How They Work
Motorized blinds are the perfect way to get a lot of benefits for your home with a minimal investment. Not only are they attractive and innovative, but motorized blinds come with features that allow you to open and close your blinds with ease and automatically. Here is a little more about the benefits of motorized blinds and shades and how they work.
How Do Motorized Blinds and Shades Work?
Motorized blinds and shades work by the customer first choosing a window covering, which will determine whether a motorized lift or tilt is needed. A power source is then chosen depending on the location of the window and the configuration of the electrical, which includes the options of a 12 volt battery tube, a 12 volt DC plug-in transformer, and a solar power kit. Lastly, there is a variety of controllers like a single channel remote control or wall switch.
The Many Benefits of Motorized Blinds and Shades
There are four major benefits that make your life easier when it comes to choosing blinds and shades that are motorized. These include:
Imagine simply pressing a single button to control all of your blinds and shades. There are no messy cords to deal with and you don’t have to reach around furniture or above your head to get to it. It is convenient and allows you to control the lighting and the privacy with one single step. This is especially convenient for rooms where you want to raise or lower all of the window treatments at once such as a home theater room.
Safety and Privacy
We all know that blinds and shades allow us to have more privacy; that’s a given. These window treatments keep out prying eyes and lets us control when we want to open them to let the light in or close them and have a more intimate environment.
However, there is another factor in the safety of motorized blinds and shades and that is the lack of cords. If you have children, pets, or both – you know that cords aren’t exactly the most safe thing and that they can be dangerous. In fact, there have been over 500 instances of cords being a hazard to children in the past few decades. Not only do motorized blinds and shades eliminate the cords but they can be programmed so that when you are away, they will open or close automatically. This keeps your home looking occupied no matter where you are.
So, you get privacy that is easy to use and no unsafe cords to worry with – it’s privacy and safety in one product.
Easy Integration and Set-Up
Motorized blinds and shades are easily integrated into most homes and even in those with home automation systems. They are perfect for homeowners who are new to the system or those who want to add motorized blinds and shades to an existing system.
An Aesthetic All Your Own
Not only are the blinds and shades easily customized, you won’t ever have to look at ugly cords again. Cords clutter up your window area and easily get frayed or old looking. With motorized blinds and shades, that problem is eliminated so that you never have to worry about it again and in a style that reflects your own personality.
