Window treatments aren’t typically thought of as being technologically advanced, but they can be with ABC Blind and Drapery! As your family opts for high-tech features in your home, such as a smart thermostat to conserve energy and sync to your lifestyle, keep in mind that we offer motorized window treatments that can also increase the quality of life at home.

The main argument in favor of motorized blinds is their ease of operation and precise control. With remote-control units, operating functions are served by a hand-held remote transmitter and a remote receiver mounted near the covering. A single remote transmitter can operate up to 12 treatments. With switch-control motorized units, a three-position switch is used to operate each window treatment. A remote like this can be especially handy for hard to reach windows — as demonstrated in the video below of an entryway window above the front door in an impossible to reach location!

Further explaining why you should automate your blinds, another added benefit is being able to “program your shades to open at sunrise and close during sunny times and at sunset.” A schedule that is specific to your lifestyle will not only help naturally regulate your sleep schedule but help lower your energy bill! Simply put, your air conditioning unit won’t have to work as hard to cool your home if the sun isn’t streaming in at the hottest time of the day.

If you’re interested in motorized blinds for their ease of operation, precise control, and ability to reduce energy consumption — but are concerned about your options in terms of style… rest assured that we have extensive drapery, roman, cellular, and naturally woven shades to choose from!
