Window shades are an essential home feature because they enhance privacy and lighting control. Though window shades have been around for a very long time, the window shades of yesterday are put to shame by modern automated window shades. If you have traditional window shades, you know that you have to go to each individual window to adjust shades which is time-consuming, inconvenient, and downright difficult if you have mobility issues. Motorized window shades are easily controlled by a remote or an app on your phone or tablet so that you can take back control and make your home life more convenient!

Motorized window shades can be adjusted individually or all can be adjusted simultaneously. Additionally, you can program your motorized window shades to adjust at certain times of day, according to a UV sensor, or to unique settings for each window. And, because it is a smart home technology, you can even adjust your window shades when you are away from home so you never have to worry about forgetting to close the blinds again.

Everyone wants to enhance home security and safety and motorized window shades do just that. They do not have cords or chains like traditional window shades so you don’t have to worry about them being a hazard to small children or pets. Additionally, they can be integrated into your home automation system and work in concert with your security and surveillance systems for enhanced safety and security! When upgrading your home to smart automation technology, do not overlook the importance of motorized window shades.
