Motorized Roller Shades

Interested in making a small window treatment upgrade for your home? If so, we recommend going with a motorized roller shades system.

This shade allows you to control the amount of light and privacy within a room using only the touch of a button. For homes with pets and children, they are an excellent investment. You can get rid of dangerous, dangling cords that could act as a choking hazard.

An excellent choice for hard-to-reach windows like skylights. For people that have issues with mobility, the shade will provide the utmost convenience. You’ll never have to deal with reaching for heavy blinds or trying to fumble around with cords.

There is nothing more convenient in the window treatment market than a high-quality motorized roller shade. We recommend them for bedrooms or media rooms where people are trying to control the amount of sunlight and minimize glare without ever having to reach for blinds manually.

For increased safety, ease of use, and elegant design, a motorized roller shade is a great choice.

10 Benefits of Motorized Blinds

Shades with More Convenience

While it isn’t that hard to get up off the sofa and adjust the blinds or shades for most people, modern convenience has got us in a chokehold and we love it. The same could be said for television. We could just get up and change the channel or adjust the volume without ever using the remote, though when we know we have remotes to do it for us, why would we ever want to do it any other way?

How much time do you want to take out of your day to raise or lower your blinds? People tend to leave their shades in the position they are in throughout the day or night simply because they are too busy or consumed with life to change them.

Motorized Shades Reach

When it comes to windows that are difficult to reach, it becomes even more of a hassle. The last thing that you want to do when you wake up or get home from a long day at the office is to try and adjust your hard-to-reach shade.

Having added convenience isn’t lazy. The added convenience is simply a way for you to adjust your shade in a way that is optimal, whether you are searching for more or less sunlight, added privacy, or energy savings.

When you have this shade at your disposal, you can easily wake up to sunlight at the simple press of a button. When you want to watch your favorite movie during the day and you want to get rid of that awful glare, you can adjust your shade so that they come down.

Plus, you will wow your friends and family when they come over and you show them just how awesome your motorized shades are.

Motorized Shades and Safety

One of the biggest concerns for any parent is the safety of their child and how motorized blinds may help lower that concern.

We often have to make changes in our homes when young children are around, including lock installation for cabinets and doors, plugs for electrical outlets, and securing furniture to the walls in case of earthquakes.

However, many parents fail to consider just how dangerous widow shade cords can be. They are very dangerous for little ones and pets. A young child could easily get tangled up in the cord, which could be a life-threatening situation. One US child under the age of ten dies every month due to cord strangulation according to the US consumer product safety commission.

One of the most dangerous types of cords for both pets and children is looped manual controls with beaded chains and of course motorized blinds.

If you’re ready to make your home as safe as you can possibly make it, then it is time for you to get this shade.

Motorized Blinds Energy Savings

You will never be able to adjust your shade in the most optimal way if you are dealing with manual shades compared to motorized blinds. The great thing about them is that they can be programmed, allowing you to take advantage of all of the best things about a smart electric shade.

When you connect your shade to a smart sun sensor or a smart home hub, you can help reduce the amount of energy that your HVAC system needs to use to keep your home cool. Your shades will be able to take readings from the sun sensor or from digital weather forecasts to make decisions as to whether or not they remain open or closed.

Motorized Roller Shades Programming Benefits

If you program your window shade perfectly, you can make them so they remain closed during hot or sunny parts of the day. When it is colder out, you can program them to remain open so that the natural sunlight can come in and keep the house as warm as possible.

Not only can reducing the amount of energy you use be beneficial for you in a financial sense, but it can also have a positive impact on the environment. Plus, your home will always feel comfortable no matter what the weather feels like outside.

There is no question that the weakest and most vulnerable part of any building is the windows. All of the heat that we get inside our homes during the summer comes from the windows and all of the heat that we lose during the winter moves out the windows. If you want to minimize this heat transfer, having a smart motorized roller shade can be very beneficial.

A Motorized Roller Window Shade will Enhance Home Security

One of the best ways to protect your home from unwanted intruders is to make it look like your home is currently occupied. When you have them automated, you can set up a schedule for them to open or close, even if you are not home.

Motorized Roller Shades controlled with your mobile phone app

You can integrate a motorized window roller shade with an app or smart hub control, allowing you to make adjustments from wherever you are.

App-controlled shades and automated window shade can give an empty house the appearance to outsiders that it is currently inhabited. If you were someone watching from a distance considering trying to break in, you would want to be completely sure that the house was empty before going in. With moving window shades, you could deter people from getting in your home.

Motorized Blinds offer More Freedom For Disabled and Elderly People

You might need a bit of extra help around the house as you get older. Sometimes, even the smallest things can be very difficult to manage when you are on your own. One thing that often plagues those who are old is adjusting the blinds and window shades. The last thing you want is to have to wait for your family member, assistant, or nurse to come in to draw the shade down.

Motorized roller shades convenience

These shades help eliminate the need for help. Whether you are elderly and need help, or you are looking to purchase for your parents or relatives, they are a wonderful gift for ultimate convenience.

People that have mobility problems might find it an issue to open and close the shade. If you or a loved one has balance issues, trying to reach for hard-to-reach windows can be a huge pain. Trying to do so could lead to a dangerous tumble or fall. For those that have issues getting off of the sofa or bed in the first place may just never choose to adjust their shades at all.

There are 350 million people around the world that deal with arthritis. These people might find it difficult to grip chains or cords to make window shade adjustments. If you or a loved one suffers from arthritis, window shades with motorized controls can be incredibly helpful.
