The main goal of any smart home solution is to simplify daily living. By saving homeowners time and energy, smart home solutions allow you to repurpose it toward something you prefer to do. Maybe that’s playing with the kids, walking the dog, or reading a book.
Smart shades are just one piece of the equation. Of course, smart shades alone will not produce an afternoon all to yourself, but the incremental time savings over time can add up. Think about how much time you spend manually opening and closing your blinds each day. Perhaps, you’ve just stopped doing it altogether for that very same reason.
With smart shades, you can automate the opening and closing of your blinds through a smart control system to make opening and closing your blinds no work at all.
During the summer months, your air conditioner works hard to keep your home cool and comfortable. So give it a break by programming your smart shades to close on hot days when your room reaches a specific temperature. By blocking the sunlight, smart shades insulate internal temperatures and keep your air conditioner from working quite so hard. The result will be a more energy-efficient home with less stress on your HVAC system and more money in your wallet.
Smart shades also increase your home security while you are away. Through the power of automation, homeowners can program the shades to open and close throughout the day giving the appearance that someone is home. People often skip hanging window treatments on high windows altogether because they cannot reach them to operate them. With smart shades, you can protect your privacy by easily opening and closing them with a button.
If you love to have sunshine in your home throughout the day, you may have chosen to keep your shades perpetually open. However, prolonged exposure to the sun’s powerful rays can cause long-term damage and fading to flooring, furniture, and artwork. By pairing your smart shades with a photo sensor, you won’t have to worry about the sun damaging your belongings and can enjoy the beautiful sunshine in small doses throughout the day. Shades will automatically close if a window is hit by direct sunlight.
