Benefits of Remote Control Window Treatments

There are many benefits associated with the increasingly popular automated and remote controlled window treatments. At The Shade Shop, we offer motorized window treatments from Hunter Douglas that will meet your style and functionality needs with a variety of benefits. Some of the benefits of motorized window treatments include:

Added Convenience

Motorized window treatments increase the convenience of your life because your window blinds and shades can be operated with a single press of a button on a remote control or smartphone application. This gives you the ability to control all of your window treatments simultaneously, including those hard to reach skylights or tall windows. For individuals that are physically impaired, motorized window treatments give them the option to open and close their blinds or shades with ease!

Increased Energy Efficiency

Motorized window treatments improve the energy efficiency of your home because you can easily increase or decrease the heat building up in your home by opening or closing your window treatments throughout the day, as needed. This, in turn, will decrease the stress on your air conditioner and heater, which saves you money! Some automated window treatments are even equipped with a sunlight sensor to automatically adjust the window treatment for maximum energy efficiency.

Programmable Options

Many types of motorized window treatments have programmable options that can automatically operate the blinds or shades according to a pre-determined schedule. This is very beneficial for a number of reasons. The window treatments can be programmed to open and close at certain times to increase privacy. Likewise, they can be programmed to open with the sunrise for a more natural alarm clock. Finally, they can be programmed to open and close while you are out of town to give the illusion that someone is home.

Improved Safety

Motorized window treatments are completely cordless. This means that there are no long, dangling cords or wands hanging around for children or pets to get tangled in, which greatly increases the safety of your window treatments. Also, as previously mentioned, motorized blinds and shades can be programmed to open and close while you are away to simulate that someone is home, thus increasing your home’s security. For some motorized window treatments, you can even control your blinds and shades from a smartphone application while you are away!

Increased Home Value

These increasingly popular motorized window blinds and shades increase the value of your home. Motorized window treatments improve the efficiency and functionality of your home, which makes your home more attractive to potential buyers.
