Motorized blinds by Somfy at C&M Textiles

Motorized blinds

We love technology. It’s cool, it’s fun, and it makes our lives easier. What interests us in particular is home automation. I won’t lie; I’ve turned my place into a smart home. Automated thermostat, installed; smart lights around the outside of my house, check; motion detection smart cameras at each door to monitor what’s going on when I’m not home – installed. But of all the cool technology that’s been added, my favorite has to be my motorized blinds.

There’s nothing I love more than having my blinds automatically rise in the morning, letting in the warmth of the sun and brightening up my home. Equally, there’s nothing more convenient than lowering the blinds at the click of a button when the sun goes down, containing all the heat collected from the sun in the house, especially now that it’s colder outside.

Motorized blinds and shades can tilt, open and close with just the push of a button or with a tap of your phone. Motorization is available on many products like cellular shadesroman shades and roller shades. Motorized shades allow you to adjust the light in your hard to reach windows. Motorized blinds are powered by a wall plug or batteries.

Motorized blinds offer more than just “the wow factor”. It’s a great theft deterrent. You can simulate presence by scheduling operation of your window treatments while you are away on holidays or business trips, or even when leaving for just one evening or a weekend. They help make it look like you are home even when you are not. Motorization also means no operational cords for pets or children to get tangled in. Lastly, motorized window treatments make your home more valuable when you are ready to sell.
