Convenience of Motorized Blinds
One of the biggest advantages of motorized blinds is the convenience. You can raise or lower blinds with a simple touch of a button on a remote. You can control one blind at a time if you want a specific amount of light let in your room, or you can control all the blinds at once for privacy or maximum sunlight. If you have many windows in your home, this is a big time saver because you don’t have to adjust the blinds on every window one at a time; using the remote will raise or lower all the blinds in just seconds. They are also perfect for any windows that are hard to reach, or for people with disabilities who have a hard time opening blinds using cords. Motorized blinds can even be used on French doors, and there are many sizes available. No matter what kind of windows you have or where they are in the house, motorized blinds are a great option to save you time and hassle.
You might be skeptical of having motorized blinds in your home, but they are very safe, especially since there are no cords. You don’t have to worry about kids or pets playing with the blinds’ cords, and you also don’t have to worry about the cords getting tangled or breaking. Motorized blinds are also completely wireless, so you don’t have to worry about visible wires or wires breaking and causing issues.
Without cords and wires, motorized blinds are the sleekest window treatments available. You don’t have to worry about trying to hide unsightly broken or tangled cords when guests come over. Gone are the days of lopsided looking blinds from stubborn cords that don’t want to work properly. Cordless motorized blinds can give any room an elegant, clean look. If you have a room with several windows next to each other, it’s easy to line up the blinds in the same exact position to make everything match perfectly.
Protection from Burglary
Motorized blinds are convenient, safe, and look nice, but they can also help protect your home from burglars. Do you know any other kind of window treatment that can do that? Motorized blinds are controlled by a remote, and you can also set timers for them to open or close at certain times of the day. You can set the timer for the blinds to open when you’re getting out of bed to help the sunlight wake you up, and you can have them close when the sun is the strongest in the afternoon to protect your furniture and rugs from fading in the sunlight. Having your blinds change position throughout the day also makes it appear as if someone is in the home, so while you’re away on vacation, you can use the timer to have your blinds move during the day so any potential burglars will think that someone is in the house moving them manually. You don’t have to ask your neighbors to check on your house and open and close your blinds in your absence; you just have to set a timer with a few clicks of a button.
Reduce Energy Costs
The timer with motorized blinds can also help cut down on your energy costs. If you’re at work all day, you won’t be able to open and close blinds to let in the most sunlight possible in the winter and block out the sunlight when it’s strongest in the summer, but using the timer on the remote can do that for you. Plus, you can set the timer to allow the blinds to move to a specific spot in the window to really customize the amount of light your home needs depending on the season. You can even adjust the blinds to a specific spot to let the family cat or dog be able to nap in the sun while still blocking out most of the sunlight.
