If you’re thinking about upgrading your current window coverings, you may want to consider investing in motorized blinds, shades, shutters or drapes.


Key benefits of motorized blinds and shades

Easy maintenance –

How do motorized blinds and shades work? Most of them are battery-powered, which makes them easy to install and maintain.

Convenience –

Does your home have hard to reach windows or multiple windows in one room? Motorized window treatments make it easy for you to open and close them with just a press of a button or a tap on an app. It’s convenience at your fingertips.

Variety –

Today, almost any type of window covering can be motorized. Whether you need durable shutters, sleek blinds, affordable shades or custom drapery, each style of window treatment can be motorized, complementing the functionality of your space.

Control –

You can program most motorized blinds and shades to automatically open and close at certain times of the day, whether you’re at home or away. Some motorized window coverings can be scheduled to open and close according to the sunrise and sunset based on your location. You can also customize the limits on the open or close position of the window covering for partial or complete privacy.

Compatible –

Some motorized systems sync with smart home devices like the Nest Thermostat, Google Home or Amazon Alexa. This way, you can connect your window coverings to the rest of your home devices. In some cases, you can even open and close the blinds and shades with voice control.

Safety –

Cords can be tripping hazards and dangerous for young children who mistaken them for toys. Since motorized blinds and shades are cordless, they’re ideal for homes with little ones and/or pets.

Energy efficient –

You can program your motorized blinds and shades to be closed during hot summer days to keep your home cool. You can also program the window coverings to stay open during sunny winter days to warm your home.
