Turn the clock back even 25 years and people would be baffled at the technologies of today – including the impressive automated blind. Automated blinds have become increasingly popular over the last few years, so here’s why you should consider installing them in your home:
Protect your Furniture
Motorised blinds can help protect your furniture, wallpaper, and pictures from the harshness of the sun which causes the colours to fade over time. Although you may want to take full advantage of the sunlight whilst you are relaxing in your home, when you are at work or out, there is no point subjecting your belongings to the damaging sunlight. Automated blinds can take care of this problem by automatically lowering the blind in bright sunlight.
Convenient and stylish feature
In recent years, with advanced products being released such as the ‘Alexa’ and automated hoover – then why not automated blinds? Automated blinds can simply be controlled from your phone at the press of a button and you don’t even have to be at home! You’ll also be able to set a schedule for your blinds, so you’ll be able to adjust the light levels accordingly. It is undeniable that this is a unique appliance to have within your home and is a fun way to impress your guests. Motorised blinds also tend to last much longer than normal blinds, as there is no wear and tear from human interaction. It also adds value to your home if you are thinking of selling.
Perfect for disabled people or limited access
People who find it difficult to use the blind cords or if the window is in an awkward, unreachable place, then automated blinds will give you the peace of mind you need and give you maximum comfort and access within your home.
Safe for homes with children
Children have a knack for getting into trouble and breaking things. Unfortunately, every year children seriously injure themselves or even die from getting tangled in blind cords. You can completely eliminate the risk by using an automated system.
Setting your blinds to open and close in sync with your sleeping pattern will help you sleep better and wake up unaided by your alarm clock – which can cause high blood pressure from the shock of a sudden alarm.
Blinds can keep heat out and insulate the inside of your home. By having the blinds shut during sunny days, it reflects the sunlight from heating the room up and giving a greenhouse effect in your home whilst you’re trying to keep it cool. This will save you money on air conditioning, but also retain the heat in the winter so you can save on your heating bills.
Automated blinds have plenty of advantages to benefit from and are suitable for a variety of homes. Whether you need a safer environment for your children, or want to a stylish addition to your home – think automated blinds!
