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.
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.

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.

Why Are Roller Shades So Popular?
Easy to Clean
Unlike many other kinds of shades and blinds, which feature slats, folds, or louvers, roller shades are one long piece of fabric or synthetic material with a single headrail. When fully extended, a roller shades stretches along the length of your window. Not only do roller shades accumulate less dust, dirt, and grime than other types of window shades, but they are also much easier to clean.
To remove debris, all you really need is a good feather duster or soft microfiber cloth. If you have any serious stains on your roller shades, you may consider using a damp rag and a mild cleaner that you have sitting around at home.
Regardless, your roller shades will be easy to maintain and will last you for many years.
Roller Shades Eliminate Outside Light
A lot of the reasons why homeowners decide to get window treatments in the first place is because they want to have more control over the light in their rooms. There are plenty of light control options when it comes to roller shades, including light-filtering, room darkening, and blackout, which you can choose from depending on the amount of control you want.
These types of shades can block out harsh UV rays from sunlight, keeping your furniture from becoming faded or discolored. Whether you want to maintain the warmth of natural sunlight or create pitch darkness, the choice is yours.
If you’re planning on putting your blackout roller shades in a nursery, home office, bedroom, or living room, we recommend going with room darkening or blackout shades. Whenever you want to let natural sunlight in, it’s as easy as raising your shades. Here at Affordable Blinds, we have tons of unique fabrics and colors to choose from so that you can find the best roller shades to fit your decor.
Maximizing Privacy and Light Control With Proper Measurements
Get the measurements right before placing an order.
It is very important that you install your motorized roller shades correctly if you want to have the most effective light control and privacy possible. Yes, roller shades are made to provide light control and privacy with a built-in look, though you might not get the full benefit if you get the wrong size.
Picking the right motorized roller shades begins with thoroughly measuring your window to make sure that you can install them properly. You want to first decide whether you want to go with an inside mount or an outside mount.
Outside mounted motorized roller shades make use of a headrail that sits outside the casing of the window. These types of shades cover the entirety of the window. The beauty of outside mount roller shades is that they have extra fabric around the edges, which can help cover any additional light leakage from gaps. You can use outside mounts to make smaller windows appear larger or cover up old or ugly window casings.
For a more traditional approach, you may consider inside mount shades. Inside mount roller shades have a headrail placed flush in the window casing. It is crucial that you get the most precise measurements possible so that you can avoid dealing with light leakage and gaps. We always tell our customers to measure to the closest eighth of an inch for accuracy. Never round up when doing so, as you could end up with roller shades that are too large for your window.
Beyond that, it is also important to measure the height and width in multiples places across the window so that you can make sure everything is even from top to bottom.
