Home automation can take many forms and, in previous blogs, we have covered quite a few of these topics. In today’s post, however, we are going to talk about an area of home automation that many people don’t consider, motorized blinds. This simple home upgrade can offer multiple benefits to homeowners and, in our opinion, is a home automation solution that needs to receive more attention. Continue reading below to learn more.

Home Automation is Here

Decades ago, when people spoke of home automation it was this abstract idea that, in theory, sounded amazing but, in reality, was something that most people could either not afford or were not interested in pursuing. Sounding like something out of science fiction, home automation promised to make lives easier, home’s more economical, and the world a better place. While home automation is still not as widespread as we would like to see it, major gains have been made in the last few years and, unsurprisingly, more people are taking advantage of home automation solutions. Motorized blinds are one of the most common ways that people enter into the world of home automation and, below, we have listed a few benefits that these window treatments offer.

  • Increased Home Value: Homeowners in the last few years have learned an important lesson: green features sell. When people are looking to purchase a home, they are more likely to choose a home with energy saving features and, more importantly, they are willing to spend more money on homes that they perceive as more green. Installing motorized blinds helps to raise the value of a person’s home and, if you ever decide to sell your home, could be the deciding factor that makes a buyer choose your home over someone else’s.
  • Increased Privacy: Nobody likes the thought of someone being able to peek in on them when they are in their own home. Homes are a place for relaxation and, for most people, it is hard to relax when you feel as though you are exposed. With motorized blinds, privacy is just a touch of a button away. No matter where you are in your home, you are able to control exactly which windows people are able to see into and which windows are covered.
