Motorization: The Future is Here
Motorized window treatments are window coverings that can be operated remotely using a motorized, electric system. They are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenience, energy efficiency, and modern aesthetic. Lutron’s Serena Shades and Blinds, Hunter Douglas’ Powerview Automation, Somfy, Crestron, Control4, and Savant are all industry leading Home Automation service providers. The Smart Shade market totaled $162 million in 2019 but is expected to grow to just under $2 billion by 2025. The future is here. Don’t be left behind.
Motorized window treatments are perfect for hard to reach windows, add safety to your space by offering cordless operation, and give you ultimate hands-free control over high quality window coverings. With the capability to be controlled via hand-held remote, wall switch, timers, smart phone, home automation systems and other third-party devices, motorized window treatments are the best way to go.
The Benefits of Automated Window Treatments
- Style and Simplicity: The elimination of cords and chains from manual treatments creates a modern, simple, and minimalist aesthetic to a room
- Convenience: With motorized window treatments, you can control your shades or blinds with the push of a button, from anywhere in the room. They can connect to Home Automation Systems, iPhone and Android smartphones, smart home assistants like Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod, and more. This is particularly advantageous for large windows, abnormally shaped windows, or skylights as well
- Energy efficiency: Motorized window treatments can be programmed to open and close at specific times of the day, which can help regulate the temperature inside your home and reduce your energy bills
- Increased real estate value: Motorized window treatments are considered a luxury feature in a home or commercial space, and can increase the overall value of your property
