5 Reasons Smart Shades are the Smart Choice for Your Home

Smart Shades

We’ve all seen it in TV shows and movies – a luxurious apartment or hotel where the blinds rise automatically as our protagonist is gently woken by the morning sunlight. Sure, that seems like a great way to wake up, but smart shades are much more than a gentle alarm clock.

1. Safety

Properly installed smart shades provide safety features to help keep your children and pets safe. There are no dangling cords to get hung up on, so don’t have to worry about your little ones hurting themselves by getting snagged. This also provides a much cleaner look to compliment your interior design.

2. Comfort

Your smart shades can integrated with your other smart home features and automatically adjust to provide the perfect light levels in your home. You can also control them with the touch of a finger or the sound of your voice. We’ve all experienced the sun suddenly blasting through the window and distracting us from our favorite show or game. With smart shades, you can correct this without even leaving your spot on the couch!

3. Energy Savings

Smart shades can double the insulating value of your windows. You don’t need to make sure you are opening and closing them to maximize your energy efficiency, we can configure them to do the work for you. Your shades can integrate with the rest of your smart home features to deliver real savings on your energy bills.

4. Security

Your smart shades can help you to increase the security of your home in a number of ways. Your shades can close as soon as you leave your home and open when you arrive. They can also be opened and closed remotely, and scare away potential criminals who may be approaching or staking out your home. You never have to appear to be away from home again!

5. Smart Home Integration

All of these benefits can be made even greater when your smart shades are integrated into a full smart home system. We have the knowledge and expertise to help make your home into the home of the future. It doesn’t need to be overwhelming or confusing.
