Motorized Blinds and Shades 101


Motorized window treatments offer you unparalleled control over your indoor environment, with dozens of stylish options available, including motorized blinds, shades, curtains and drapes. Typically, motorized blinds, curtains and drapes (as well as automatic shades) are suspended from a remote control-activated rod, which you can open and close at the push of a button. Blinds and shades can be horizontally or vertically oriented and custom-crafted from a range of materials, including fabric, vinyl, metal and wood. You can also automate exterior shutters, window silhouettes and cell shades.

Advantages of Motorized Window Treatments
A long list of advantages makes investing in motorized blinds and window treatments well worth considering. Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy:

  • Superior home security. Many motorized blinds permit you to create an automated schedule so they open and close at regular intervals while you’re away on vacation. This creates a convincing illusion that you’re still at home, which is proven to help ward off intruders.
  • Enhanced privacy. Motorized blinds can be left open, partially closed or completely closed, allowing you pinpoint control over your home privacy.
  • Reduced energy costs. Energy efficient window treatments help maintain an even indoor temperature, reducing your home heating and cooling costs and helping you slash your household energy budget.
  • Improved safety. If you have young children or pets in your home, motorized window treatments eliminate the traditional free-standing cord, which can be hazardous.
  • Easy access. Motorized treatments are ideal for hard-to-reach windows, and they’re an excellent option for elderly homeowners who want an easier way to maintain control over their indoor environment.
  • Furniture protection. Prolonged sun exposure can cause serious damage to furniture, carpets, wallpaper and wall art. If you’re away during the day, you can get programmable blinds that automatically close during times of day when your home is exposed to bright sunlight.
