Automated Shades – Your 2021 Resolution

Automated Shades – Your 2021 Resolution

See ya 2020… hello 2021! After such a crazy year full of ups, downs and turnarounds, Floridians are welcoming 2021 with open arms. Many of us spent a lot more time at home then we ever thought possible and with that we got a first hand look into what sort of improvements we’d want to make to our properties. One easy upgrade would be to add some home automation elements like automated shades.

Automated shades are a great way to save on energy costs, add privacy, improve safety elements, increase home value, and add convenience. With so many benefits, it’s a no brainer why thousands of people add them to their homes each year.

Energy Efficiency

Automated shade control allows you to pre-program when your shades open and when they close. Lowering shades in the summer months blocks the sun from overheating a room. In the winter months, raising the shades allows the homeowner to capture the natural solar heat. Both of these examples reduces the energy load of the HVAC system which decreases the energy cost to the homeowner. Best of all, you can program your automated shades to do this multiple times throughout the day depending on where the sun is.

Privacy/Security

Having automated shades allows you to have privacy when you need it easily. Pre-program or simply press a button when you want your shades to go up and down. Or when you’re out of town, an effective way to protect your home from intrusion is making it appear as though it’s occupied. Raising and lowering shades at preset times, or controlling them from wherever you are gives an empty house a lived-in appearance.

Safety/Protection

Automated shades eliminates any cords, making them a great choice for households with young children and/or animals. They also protect your furniture and décor from too much sunlight. This ensures your vibrant colors stay that way and don’t fade.

Home Value

Adding home automation features to your home is a sure way to increase it’s overall value. It’s hard to say exactly how much adding automated shades will add to a homes value but it certainly is easy to see that it adds a sense of elegance and style. With a variety of fabrics and designs to choose from… automated shades give you the options to customize them so they fit your home décor perfectly.

Convenience

Automated shades allows you to sit back and relax while your blinds open and close when you want. They are especially useful if your home has high or hard to reach windows.
