Today’s consumers are increasingly interested in using technology to streamline their daily tasks. Current technologies now make it possible to remotely control security systems, heating, cooling and lighting systems. Motorized operation is an available option for most types of window coverings as well and they can be integrated with several home automation systems. We encourage you to consider the advantages below and how the purchase of motorized window treatments may fit your needs.
Motorization makes it easier to operate hard-to-reach window coverings. Multiple window coverings can be controlled individually, all at once, or in combination with the simple touch of a button. Control options are available to suit a variety of personal choices. Used as a standalone or in combination with others, wall switches, remote controls, and timers are available to provide convenient control. Motorized window treatments offer several power options. The easy to install battery style operation low voltage requires no hard wiring and is the easiest to install. Hard wired low-voltage systems use a transformer and can be plugged directly in to a wall outlet or directed back to a multi-shade power source. Hardwire line voltage is also available to accommodate the power requirements that larger shades may require.
Motorized drapery track is also available.
Motorized window treatments can be programmed to control interior heat gain, which can help lower heating and cooling bills. Seasonal optimization can be adjusted by setting the shades to raise and lower at various times of day.
Safety and Privacy
Consumers can use automatic timers to lower window coverings at night or while away from home, for added home security. Motorization also eliminates cords, which can be a safety hazard for small children and pets.
Motorization eliminates cords allowing the viewer to enjoy the beauty and simplicity of blinds or shades. The system is non-intrusive and offers smooth and quiet operation. For the tech savvy, wirelessly controlled window coverings are the latest trend in home automation.
