While motorized window shades usually aren’t at the top of a homeowner's wish list and they often get overlooked for more flashy technology, they offer more convenience and advantages than you would think.
Motorized window shades add convenience and comfort to your at-home experience by giving you the power to control any shade in your home with a remote or right from your smartphone without having to get up and physically raise or lower your shades.
While warmer weather and summertime are always welcomed after a cold and dreary winter, that doesn’t mean you want it to feel like summer inside of your home. Installing motorized shades can help keep your space cool without requiring your climate control system to work overtime.
Open your shades early in the morning and enjoy the natural sunlight before the hottest part of the day. In the afternoon, you can schedule your motorized shades to lower and block out the sun’s rays and minimize the amount of heat that enters your home.
When you utilize your motorized shades to shield your home from the sun’s bright rays during the warmest part of the day, you save your HVAC system from having to cool down your home for most of the day.
When you integrate your motorized window shades with your home automation system, you can program your shades to lower once your smart thermostat reaches a certain temperature to prevent it from getting warmer inside, resulting in a lower energy bill during the summer months. What homeowner doesn’t want that? Best of all, the opposite is also true. During the winter months, your home automation system can open your shades to let sunlight in before turning on your heater.
