Smart phones, smart watches, smart refrigerators — smart devices are everywhere. Did you know that your window treatments can also be smart? With an advanced motorized system, you can combine the classic elegance of your curtains or shades with the convenience and efficiency of smart technology. In this blog post, we will talk about some of the benefits you can experience when you upgrade your home or office with motorized curtains or shades in Dallas.
Do you have a lot of windows, or are the cords and rods for your window treatments difficult to reach? A motorized system saves you time because it allows you to control your shades or curtains at the touch of a button — or even with your voice if you use Amazon Alexa in your home. Plus, the motors can spare you the trouble of contorting or stretching to reach any control mechanisms that aren’t easy to get to.
Do you sometimes forget to close your curtains before you leave the house for work? As the blazing midday sun streams in through the windows, it can cause your AC to go into overdrive, wasting your precious money. With motorized curtains in Dallas, you can program them to close at a certain time — or you can opt for a system with a sun sensor, which will automatically make the curtains close when the sun is at its hottest. On cold days, you can remotely close the window treatments to keep heat inside your home.
If you have other smart home devices, they can work with your motorized window treatments to help you save energy. For example, if some natural light is coming through your windows, any smart lighting you have may automatically turn off, depending on how you have it set.
Protection for Interior Finishes
The sun’s UV rays fade fabrics and hardwood floors over time. Blinds and curtains can prevent that from happening — but only if you keep them closed at the right times. Motorized window treatments with a sun senor can help you to accomplish just that and keep your home looking fantastic from floor to ceiling and from window to wall.
Safety and Security
If you close your curtains before you leave on vacation and they stay closed for a long time, criminals might rightly assume that you are not at home. Since you can control motorized window treatments and other aspects of your smart home from far away, you can give the impression that someone is still in the house. Additionally, motorized window treatments can be controlled without a cord. That means you will never have to worry about a cord getting tangled up or posing a safety hazard to small children.
