How Motorized Shades Work

After installing motorized blinds by a manufacturer like Screen Innovations, your shades will automatically extend and retract from a small cassette or roller that easily blends into any window. You can adjust your blinds from a remote control, touch screen, or voice-activated speaker—or a combination of all three! SI’s motorized shades are compatible with Control4, so all of your smart technology can be synced to one location.

Prepare your entire home for nighttime in one press of a button; or create a streamlined appearance by setting every blind to the same level. Screen Innovation’s veil motors also allow you to activate blinds by pulling on the fabric, so with one tug, the entire room will adjust instantly.

 

Customized Styles

With Screen Innovations blinds available in twelve colors, you can personalize your shades to match your home’s character. SI creates both indoor and outdoor automated shades so that you can transform exterior spaces into insect-free porches in one tap of a button. QMotion, another trusted manufacturer, supplies many different screen fabrics, from blackout to room-darkening to sheer. Choose from a range of materials that permit from 1% to 10% of UV light into your rooms. QMotion also provides wireless shading options, with their ZigBee network and range extender to cover your entire home in one connected system.

 

Versatile Benefits

Of course, it’s fun and convenient to adjust the blinds hands-free. But motorized shades carry several essential benefits, like assisting those with disabilities who cannot reach blinds by themselves. From one touch on the Control4 app or by voice-command, users can feel empowered to take control of their privacy and sunlight.

Motorized shades are also helpful to reduce energy costs. Set your shades to timers or heat sensors, so that they will automatically lower as your house grows too warm or too cool to maintain the right temperature. This will free you to rely less on your HVAC system, cutting energy costs.

Additionally, motorized blinds can disguise a vacant house to trick burglars and trespassers from entering. While you’re at work or away on vacation, schedule your blinds to raise and lower automatically so that it will always look like rooms are occupied. Who knew blinds could accomplish so many things?
