Motorized Shades: What are the Benefits?

When you fall into bed, exhausted, at the end of a long day, the last thing you want is to realize that you left the shades open and street light from outside is streaming in, keeping you from much-needed slumber. Even though you don’t want to crawl from your comfy nest to close the shades, you know you won’t get a wink of sleep until you do.

There is a better solution: motorized shades. Motorized shades that open and close at the push of a button are not only ideal for hard-to-reach windows high on the wall, but they add convenience in every room, from bedrooms and offices to media rooms. You’ll enjoy countless benefits when you upgrade to motorized blinds.

Remote Control

The most prominent benefit of motorized shades is the added convenience of remote control. Suppose you like to leave your windows open at night for fresh air and a breeze, but you can’t stand the blinding light of the morning sun. With motorized shades, you needn’t stumble from bed and interrupt your sleep. You can simply trigger the remote to close shades as soon as the first light of dawn trickles in.

Any time you want to enjoy a theater-like atmosphere in your media room, you can close all the shades with one click to instantly cut glare and create a pitch-black environment in which to enjoy your favorite films. You don’t have to climb a ladder to reach shades in your vaulted living room or live with cords hanging down the wall. Motorized shades eliminate these issues and add incredible convenience to your life.

Smart Home Integration

Homes these days are jam-packed with smart devices like lighting, thermostats, security alarms, and more that you can control remotely. Not only can you add motorized blinds to the mix, but you can often find ways to use these smart devices in tandem to create even greater benefits.

For example, if you have lighting solutions that turn off when natural lighting reaches a certain level, you can open shades to switch off lights. Alternately, closing shades during hot summer days could keep your home cool so you can adjust your thermostat. There are plenty of smart ways to optimize your home when you integrate motorized shades.

Energy Savings

Not only can your shades help you to reduce energy costs for heating and cooling when used appropriately, but you can also choose products that add a layer of insulation to windows, further improving energy costs.

Safety and Security

The cords that normally dangle from shades could prove problematic if you have small kids that love to grab or pets that want to play. You won’t face these safety issues with motorized shades. When you’re on vacation, there are numerous ways to convince would-be intruders you’re home, especially with smart home products. Raising and lowering blinds remotely can add to the illusion and help to keep your home secure while you’re away.

There are so many benefits inherent to motorized shades – once you install them you’ll wonder how you ever got by without them. Choosing the perfect products for your home and scheduling installation is easy when you partner with The Blinds Side. Contact us at 410-630-6940 or [email protected] today to learn more.
