Benefits of Switching to Motorization

Blinds benefit your home year-round. You can control the amount of natural light that enters during the day and ensure complete privacy at night. The right blinds will block out all light for the perfect home theater experience or getting some comfortable sleep during daylight hours. But, everyone has at least one window blind that is somewhat difficult to reach due to window height or furniture placement. It is also easy to forget to open and close your household blinds each day. If you leave your home during the day with blinds open, it seemingly broadcasts your absence to anyone passing by when the blinds remain open after nightfall. Motorized blinds provide the benefits of traditional blinds with added convenience and privacy.


Motorized blinds let you adjust every blind in the room simultaneously. You do not have to move furniture or risk knocking over fragile objects to reach the controls.

Improved Privacy

With a simple push of one button, you can close blinds before taking a shower or getting ready for bed. Opening them again is just as easy.

Timers Are Available

Many people appreciate using the natural light of the sun as a more gentle method of waking from sleep than loud auditory alarms. You can set the blinds to open automatically any time of day you wish. Your motorized blinds can also be set to close in the evening whether you are home or not.

This can simulate that you are home when you are out for the evening or away on vacation. It is also a great way to enjoy the benefits of blinds without having to take time out of your busy day to open or close the blinds on every window. Some houseplants need a limited amount of sunlight. You can program blinds to allow the optimal amount of sun on plants and not give it another thought.

Safer for Pets and Children

This is the best aspect of all. With motorized blinds, there is no long, hanging operational cord for curious kitties, playful pups, or your active children to get tangled in. You do not have to take extra precautions to block their access to windows for their protection.

Protect Surfaces from Excessive Sun

Your motorized window shades can be equipped sun sensors to open or close based on the intensity of sunlight. This protects furniture and wall art from fading. It reduces your own exposure to the suns harmful UV rays, too. Many people overlook the need to protect from sun damage while indoors.

Enhance the Enjoyment of Your Home

Whether it is setting the perfect romantic mood, enjoying the natural beauty outside your windows, or creating the perfect viewing experience for your home theater, motorized window blinds make the experience easier and more enjoyable. Motorized window treatments are available for every budget with features available that can personalize them for your unique needs and situation.
