When choosing home décor, today’s homeowners not only look for style, but ease of operation, convenience, and the latest technology. When choosing window treatments, all of these requirements are easily met by motorized blinds.
Motorized blinds have become more and more popular in recent years, and they offer many advantages over conventional blinds or alternative window coverings:
- Easy Operation for Large Windows or Hard to Reach Blinds
Raising or lowering conventional blinds on a large window can be very strenuous. If you have blinds on a skylight, you might need a ladder to adjust them. Motorized blinds solve both of these problems.
You can control your motorized blinds from the comfort of your easy chair. These blinds come with a remote control, similar to that one that works your TV.
- Bluetooth Technology
In addition to the models than come with a separate remote, there are others that are equipped with Bluetooth technology which allows you to operate your blinds with your smart phone, tablet or computer. Some models ramp it up another notch by allowing you to speak your commands to operate the blinds.
In addition to the simple commands of up, down, or tilt, you can even program your blinds to open and close at different times of the day or night.
By using the programmable feature of your blinds, you can set your blinds to rise or fall at predetermined times of the day, so that when you’re away from home, it will give the illusion that you’re actually there.
- Energy Efficiency
Depending on the season, you can set your blinds to rise or fall to keep heated or cooled air inside and the hot or cold air outside.
If you have pets or small children, cords from traditional blinds can present a choking hazard. Motorized blinds have no cords, so this is one danger you won’t need to worry about.
- Ease of Installation
The installation of motorized blinds is no more complicated than that of conventional blinds.
- Low maintenance
Motorized blinds require little or no maintenance. Of course, if they’re battery operated, you’ll have to occasionally change the batteries. Some models come with rechargeable batteries to make them even more convenient.
