The Benefits of Motorized Blinds and Motorized Shades

You change the channels and volume on your TV from across the room. Your car key has never been used to unlock a door. And you haven’t actually lifted a garage door in years. Isn’t it time your window treatments moved with the touch of a button?  Here are some of the benefits of motorized blinds and motorized shades:

UV protection – If you didn’t love the sun, you probably wouldn’t be living in Miami. But your belongings may not like it as much as you do. Constant exposure to UV rays can fade your furniture, rugs, and flooring, causing them to look discolored or worn out. With motorized blinds from South Kendall Interiors, it’s easy to adjust your window treatments to protect the inside of your home from these damaging rays.

Automatic energy-efficiency – If you know Hunter Douglas window coverings, you are probably already familiar with their energy-efficient honeycomb shades. However, if you always leave them in one position because they are a pain to adjust, your utility savings decreases. With motorized shades, there’s no reason not to take full advantage of their effectiveness. You can easily move multiple shades at one time, or even set them to open and close by themselves at certain time of day or night.

Safety of pets and kids – Many manual window treatments are operated with cords or chains that can be a choking or strangulation hazard for young children or pets. Automating your window treatments eliminates the need for cords or chains, making them safe for even the smallest, most curious family members.

Peace of mind when you aren’t home – Whether you’re working full-time or enjoy traveling, there are times when you aren’t home either on a regular basis or for an extended period of time. Would-be thieves watch for signs that a house is empty, like blinds that haven’t moved, before deciding where to strike. With motorized blinds or motorized shades, you can make your house look occupied even when it isn’t because you can move them from anywhere that you have a wi-fi signal or schedule them to adjust themselves at different times throughout the day.

Allowing a room to serve double duty – Have you ever wished you didn’t live in Florida so you could have a basement with a home theater? You don’t have to leave the Sunshine State to make it a reality. Room-darkening motorized shades can quickly turn your normally sunny family room into the perfect place to watch movies. When the show is over, push a button and let the sunshine back in.

Overall convenience – No article about the benefits of motorized window treatments would be complete with mentioning their incredible convenience. Multiple blinds can be opened, closed, or tilted to the same position at the same time. Shades that haven’t moved in years because they are behind a piece of furniture or too high to reach are suddenly more useful. Your days of streaking across your bedroom after your shower to close the blinds your spouse left open are over.
