Benefits of Motorized Window Coverings

In addition to being a cool feature to show off to your friends, having your window coverings automated has other benefits.

Hands Free Convenience

First, motorized window treatments are easier to adjust. If you have large windows with blinds, the weight of the blinds can make it difficult to adjust them evenly without an extra pair of hands. Window treatments in hard-to-reach places, like behind furniture or high on a wall, often end up stuck in one position because it’s too much of a hassle to open or close them. Automating your window coverings eliminates both of these issues. No matter the size or location of your blinds, they can be moved with just one finger

Synchronizing Window Coverings

Second, automating your blinds, shades or sheers, makes multiple windows more manageable. Imagine being able to open or close an entire room of window treatments at one time. This feature saves you time and the frustration of trying to get them to hang at the same level or be open the same amount. Opening the window treatments throughout your home is easy and convenient. You don’t even have to be in the same room.

Whole House Automation

Third, some of these systems allow you to control your window coverage even when you aren’t home. This feature is perfect for when you are at the office all day and want to adjust your blinds before you get home. It’s also great when you’re on vacation and want your home to look occupied. Someone casing your house is likely to move on when they see your window treatments changing position. Some systems like our PowerView™ Motorization effortlessly connect with your home automation for even greater use and versatility.

Programmable Window Treatments

Advanced motorized shades and blinds can be programmed to operate in a variety of ways. You can set up your window treatments to open and close to whatever your preferences are any time of the day. They also work with the sun and can be programmed to open or close whenever sunrise or sunset is, based on your location. This makes the daily chore of opening and closing shades obsolete. If you want some of your shades to open during the day and some to remain closed to increase the energy efficiency, you don’t have to worry because you have options to program up to 6 different groups of window treatments.
