Convenience

Motorised blinds offer you convenience in your home. They can be controlled, opened and closed with the press of a button, via a remote or on an app on your phone

If that appeals to you, then you’ll love the fact that motorised blinds can be put on a schedule. Open at sunrise, close during the peak sun hours, and open again as the temperature drops. Choosing to put them on a schedule will mean that you won’t have to worry about it yourself – they’ll work for you.

They can also react to pre-set sun and temperature thresholds using sensors which will automatically open or close your blinds for you. If convenience is important to you, opt for motorised blinds over manual blinds.

Energy Efficiency

Picture this, it’s a sunny summer day outside, your blinds are open, and the air-conditioner is running at full blast. Does this sound familiar? If it does, you aren’t being as energy efficient as you should be. Here’s where motorised blinds can provide a solution.

If you choose to connect a sensor or timer to your blinds, they will be able to understand the outside environment and react accordingly. At the hottest parts of summer days, they will close and keep your home cool and fresh, while in winter when it’s cold inside, they will open to let some of that gorgeous sunshine in to warm your home. 

Either way, they will work to your advantage, being energy efficient and adapting to the outside environment to lower your energy bill.

Safety

Time and time again, we hear stories of children being hurt by blinds, whether that is via dangerous dangling cords, or pulling blinds off the top of the window. With motorised blinds, neither of those things are a concern. No cords means no hassle, and it also means guaranteed safety for your children.

Security

Some people leave a pair of big yellow tradies shoes on the front door step, others ask their neighbours to step in. Either way, when we’re leaving our home, we want to know that it will be secure and safe upon our return.

Motorised blinds plant the idea that someone is always home, even when you’re on vacation. Their changing schedule and movements give outsiders the illusion that someone is home, and this will make them think twice about targeting your house.

For You?

Quite simply, motorised blinds suit everyone. They’re convenient, energy efficient, modern, and they make life that bit easier. They’re a fantastic way to take advantage of technology in your home and a great first step into smart home automation.
