Why Automated Window Furnishings are Trending: 5 Key Benefits

Imagine the early morning sunlight slowly filling your room through your automated blinds or curtains and when the sun’s high up in the sky, the blinds or curtains automatically close and block out the sun’s rays exactly as you scheduled it. All this at the press of a button – ah, the wonders of technology!

Benefits of Automated Window Furnishings:

Convenience

Automated window furnishings can be installed in any home. The device that enables window treatments to be automated can be added onto various types of
furnishings such as roller blinds, curtains, drapes, shutters, and venetian blinds.
The convenience of being able to operate and schedule them using a remote or
more recently a tablet or smartphone via an app is simply what makes automated
window treatments amazing.

Adjusting window furnishings that are installed in higher places can be a struggle and frustrating, especially when you are watching your favourite television show, or working from home and are suddenly interrupted by the glare of the sun. With automated window furnishings, you no longer have to manually modify them, just press a button and adjust accordingly.

Cost-efficient and energy-efficient

Manually opening and closing your blinds or curtains could, over time, cause wear and tear, which is not ideal as window furnishings can be costly. Most manually operated window furnishings might only last up to a few years especially if they endure frequent use. With automation, the opening and closing of your blinds and curtains is automatic and motorised. The same amount of pressure and pull is applied to the furnishing each time it is used – making them last longer.

Another benefit is that you can easily control room temperatures within your home. Scheduling your automated blinds or curtains at certain times of the day to let in and block out the sun can help make your home more energy-efficient.

Security

You’re in need of a holiday, but you’re nervous to leave your home for a period of time because of security reasons. If only you could open your window furnishings through the day and close them at night, creating the illusion that someone is at home. This is where automated blinds and curtains can help, installing automated window treatments will enable you to schedule when these furnishings open and close, no matter where you are. Automated furnishings will also help reduce damage to your furniture, floor coverings, walls, and artwork due to excessive exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
