Bring Your Home Into the 21st Century
IT seems that no matter where you look, some new piece of technology is being released that years before, would have seemed almost impossible to provide to the consumer market. In the last few years alone, millions of homes across the United States have started to adopt certain elements of home automation, such as the Nest thermostats and Amazon’s Echo home AI system, and judging from the trends of the sales of these products, it doesn’t look as though there are any signs of the demand for these types of products slowing down. In our previous post, we went over some of the benefits that come along with motorized blinds and, in today’s post, we are going to continue where we left off last time and continue to cover more benefits that these simple home automation additions can provide for homeowners. Keep reading below to learn more.
Home Automation is About More Than Convenience
When most people think about home automation, the first thing that comes to mind is the idea that home automation is intended to make life more convenient. While this is certainly true, home automation is about so much more than eliminating the need to switch on a few lights or adjust your thermostat. Home automation is about making your home as efficient as possible while also increasing the comfort of your personal living space. Below, we have listed a couple of ways that motorized blinds do just that.
- Safety: While it’s obvious that blinds increase the safety of a home, motorized blinds take it a few steps further. First, with automated motorized blinds, homeowners can schedule them to open and close at certain points of the day, giving the illusion that someone is at home. This is great when homeowners are on an extended trip and don’t want to broadcast that fact to the neighborhood. Second, motorized blinds have no cords, meaning that homeowners never again have to worry about children or pets getting the cords caught around their neck.
- Energy Savings: For the most part, people tend to like natural light inside of their homes. Natural light is a great way to cut down on the amount of energy that a home uses and, in our opinion, is a feature that people should do their best to play up. Unfortunately, sunlight can get pretty hot. During the day, while it might seem like having natural light shine in is a good idea, it can actually work to heat your home rapidly and, as a result, increase the strain that your home’s air conditioner experiences. Automated blinds allow homeowners to shield their windows during the hottest parts of the day, reducing the amount of sunlight that is able to enter their homes.
