Great Reasons to Upgrade to

Motorized Window Blinds

  1. Motorized Blinds Can Protect Your Furnishings, Carpet and Décor from the Sun – Motorization makes it possible to close your blinds when the sun’s damaging rays are streaming through a particular window, protecting your furnishings, carpet and décor from damage and fading.
  2. A Variety of Control Options – Blinds equipped with automation features can be operated in a variety of ways. Some have wall-mounted switches, while others are controlled with a remote control or an app. Some motorized window blind software can integrate with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, allowing you to operate them with simple voice commands.
  3. Motorized Window Blinds Can Reduce Your Home’s Energy Consumption – Not only can you protect your carpets and furnishings, blocking the sun’s rays during the summer months can reduce your home’s energy consumption, lowering your energy bills at the same time. Blinds can also be set to open and close at specific times to maximize lighting efficiency.
  4. Better Safety in the Home – Motorized window blinds are cordless, making them one of the safest window treatment options in homes with children or pets.
  5. Improved Sleep Quality – Enjoy the best of both worlds! Install opaque black-out blinds for the perfect night’s sleep, and schedule them to open in the morning. There is nothing like waking up naturally with the sun rather than abruptly with an alarm clock.
  6. Blind Automation Can Boost Home Security – Away for the weekend or coming home late? Opening and closing your blinds remotely or on a schedule will help ensure your home does not appear empty and attract the wrong kind of attention.
  7. Did We Mention the Convenience – When you’re relaxing on the sofa or in bed, nothing is more convenient than saying, “Hey Google, close the blinds.” You may never need to get up to adjust the blinds again. Motorized blinds are a perfect idea when the window is located in an awkward spot, such as up high on a wall or behind a sofa.
  8. Smooth Integration with Your Smart Home Systems – Smart home automation is designed to help all devices work with each other. Motorized window blinds can function independently and can also be easily integrated with your Google Home smart hub or Amazon Alexa. When operating your motorized blinds with a third-party control system, they can be set to work in conjunction with thermostat controls, lighting and more.
  9. Increased Home Value – Custom motorized blinds are professionally installed and made to fit your home specifically. These perfectly covered windows instantly add value to your home. From the appeal of perfectly installed and styled motorized blinds to the growing home automation trend, motorized blinds will make your home more appealing to potential buyers.

Whether you find one of the above appealing or all nine, there are plenty of great reasons to upgrade to motorized window blinds. For more information about motorized blinds, please contact the Preston Blinds design team to schedule a free in-home consultation.
