Benefits of Smart Blinds
Homeowners considering purchasing motorized smart blinds as window treatments may initially balk at the price. However, these smart shade benefits may show that they're worth the cost. Convenience
Smart homes are all about convenience, and smart blinds are no different. Motorized blinds can operate through a touch of a smartphone or remote control. In general, window coverings are a great way to prevent heat loss.
Motorized window treatments deliver convenience through automation, especially to hard-to-reach windows. The ability to place smart blinds on a set schedule is the ultimate smart home convenience. Energy Efficiency
Smart shades might be the perfect way to maximize a home's energy efficiency.1 Opening and closing blinds are more than just blocking or letting the sunlight into a room. Let the blinds work in favor of the home, and it'll be an eye-opener when the energy bill arrives.
Smart automatic blinds connected to a smart home hub can help relieve the HVAC system. It may reduce the amount of energy the unit uses by enabling the blinds to act independently with sunlight sensors to automate the process. Smart Home Integration
Many smart shades can integrate with voice assistants for simple voice control, but some smart shades can even integrate with other smart home devices like smart thermostats and smart lights. The motorized shades can work with smart thermostats to automatically adjust when the thermostat senses the homeowner is away from home. And because of the data smart thermostats collect, they can automate the shades to open or close based on the weather, time of day, and temperature inside the house to provide the ultimate convenience.
The smart thermostat can sense if the house is getting too hot and close the shades, rather than turning on the air conditioning or vice versa when it feels the house is too cold.
Smart light integration works in much the same way. The blinds can automatically open when the smart lights turn off and close when they turn on. Security
Leaving the house can be worrisome for many, whether it's going to work or on vacation. Smart blinds can be an excellent way to make it appear that someone is home, acting as a deterrent for potential burglars.
Create a schedule for the blinds or operate them from a mobile device. Smart blinds can be an inexpensive home security feature.
