Numerous benefits can arise from switching to motorized window shades, and these well-intentioned pets are learning that the hard way (*Note: No pets were harmed in the writing of this blog):

You can program motorized shades to draw and open at different times of the day. This can offer multiple layers of protection: it can help you to block the sun during peak hours and keep your home cool and energy-efficient. It can also help with safety concerns, for instance, you can program them to close during high-traffic hours or in the evening, preventing unwanted surprises, like people peeking into your windows.

Motorized window shades can sync with the latest smart home technology (like Amazon Echo or Google Home), making them a convenient, hassle-free way to operate your shades.

Motorized shades have some serious sun-blocking and insulating power, which can be especially helpful in the Florida summertime, when the sun is at its strongest. Programming shades to stay drawn between the hours of 10am and 2pm not only helps to keep your home more comfortable, it can also reduce strain on your air conditioner as it tries to keep your hot house cool, thus, helping cut energy costs.

         4. This feline would really appreciate window treatments without tangly cords

Without proper precautions, window cords can pose a threat to young children and pets. Motorization eliminates the need for pesky and potentially hazardous cords.
