Smart Home 2016: Motorized Window Coverings

motorized window coverings

Having motorized window coverings might not be something you think about often, but once you live with them, you won’t soon forget them. The ease and sophistication of motorized window coverings enhances the functionality of every interior living space.

Many homeowners may experience motorized blinds and shades for the first time on vacation in their favorite suite like at the luxurious new Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. You walk in the door and the shades slowly and quietly open, revealing a gorgeous view of the famous Vegas strip. And you didn’t touch a switch! It’s easy, elegant and efficient. At ABC Blind & Drapery, we can re-create that for you in your own home.

The brand we use exclusively for our motorized window coverings is Somfy because they offer quality state-of-the-art products with innovative solutions. Somfy tests all of their motorized window coverings for endurance, reliability, sound quality, as well as mechanical/electric quality and they perform climate testing.

Why Motorized Windows?

Many of our Austin customers have beautiful large windows that showcase lake views or view of the Texas Hill Country. If the expanse of the windows is vast, using motorized blinds or shades is much easier than traditional cords or wands.

How Do They Work?

Motorized windows for interior spaces work seamlessly with sensors, motors and easy-to-use controls. You can program the best positioning of your blinds or shades, so they automatically adjust to your personal settings. The motors are whisper-quiet, so you barely hear anything.

What Kind of Window Coverings Can Be Motorized?

ABC Blind & Drapery offers a full line of motorized window coverings including draperies, roller shades, horizontal blinds, sheer horizontal shades, pleated/cellular shades and roman/woven shades. All of these products come in a variety of sizes and colors, so we can customize them perfectly for your home.

Want to See Life in Motion?

Many of our customers have taken videos of their motorized window shades in action. You can watch a video of shades in a Driftwood, Texas home by clicking here. You can see a video of a motorized roman shade here – the perfect solution for hard-to-reach spot like above the bath tub.
