Few people consider the impact smart motorized window coverings can have on their home’s heating and cooling bills. In the heat of summer, covering your windows can prevent excessive heat and sunlight from trickling into your home. As a result, your house will feel cooler than the outside and reduce the strain on your HVAC system. Conversely, in winter, window coverings keep the cold air out and prevent heat from escaping, thereby playing a huge role in decreasing your heating bills. Investing in high-quality blinds will also prevent your floors, art, furniture, and furnishings from fading due to UV exposure.
With motorization, your window coverings can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency. You can set your blinds to open and close at certain times of day, letting in the perfect amount of light and heat. What’s more, you can coordinate your household behaviors, like waking times, for additional energy savings.
Having small children requires baby-proofing your house, which often entails covering sharp edges and installing childproof locks. These safety measures also extend into electrical cables and other cords lying around the house. Smart motorized window coverings eliminate the need for cords, making them safer for households with children or small pets. They're perfect for nurseries, playrooms, living rooms, and any room where your child may be left unsupervised. This means you never have to worry about anyone or anything getting tangled or injured.
Many people hire house sitters while on vacation to give the impression that the house is not unoccupied. It's a time-tested way of preventing burglaries. In the old days, people would have trusted neighbors or friends to open and close their blinds to keep up the ruse of occupancy. Today, all you need is a low-level smart home system. By motorizing your blinds and integrating them into your smart home system, you can program your blinds to open and close whenever you want. You can even control them remotely to provide privacy and security whenever you need it.
As mentioned, smart motorized window coverings can be operated remotely using a smartphone app or voice assistant. You can open and close them without having to get up. What's more, motorized blinds come in sleek, modern designs that can be customized to match your existing home décor. Investing in motorized blinds will give your home an added element of luxury, making your home life that much more lavish and comfortable.
