Across the nation, more homeowners are opting for motorized shade control. Almost every working function of the home can be automated, including your blinds. We offer products from partners like Lutron. Here are our top six reasons why shade control should be your next home automation solution.
While raising and lowering your shades by hand doesn’t seem particularly time-consuming, adjusting the shades of every window across your home can become a hassle. Imagine being able to adjust all the shades of your home at once! It’s possible with Lutron’s motorized shades, which can be controlled from a centralized touch screen or an app on your mobile device. You can also program different scenes that adjust sets of shades at a particular time, so even if you forgot to close the blinds before bed, your system has you covered.
You’ll soon be able to enjoy a more comfortable home with iWired’s shading solutions. Your motorized blinds can help you wake up to natural light as they automatically open in silence at 6 am, replacing the annoyance of a loud alarm. If the sun is casting an uncomfortable glare in your living, set your blinds to lower at the particular time the glare is worst. Alternatively, keep them raised to bask in a patch of sunlight; simple comforts make life feel most luxurious. Lutron’s Serena Shades are an option for homeowners who are seeking affordability and comfort.
Automated shading solutions can help protect your home’s assets and family members too. Because you can control motorized blinds through your mobile device, you can manage them even when you’re away. You can pair your shade adjustment with light settings that create “mockupancy” scenes to create the illusion that people are at home to discourage intruders from attempting a break-in. Furthermore, if you forgot to close the shades at night, automated settings have your back.
Your heating and air conditioning bills may be higher than necessary because windows leak up to 50% of a home’s energy. However, motorized blinds can save you money through automated adjustments to naturally cool and warm your home during every season. We offer Lutron shades that insulate and manage your home’s solar heat intake to welcome the warmth when you need it and block it when you don’t.
Your skin isn’t the only thing harmed by UV rays; your home’s furniture, artwork, and floors fade over time due to light intensity. UV rays also reflect off of phone, television, and computer screens to damage your eyesight, but you can protect your vision and home décor through motorized shading that filters an appropriate amount of natural light.
