The Evolution of Home Comfort with Motorized Shades

Gone are the days of manually adjusting your window treatments to achieve the perfect ambiance or privacy level. Motorized shades offer unparalleled convenience at the touch of a button or through voice commands. Thanks to advancements in home automation technology, we can connect different systems together using a hub or bridge.

We work with top brands such as Somfy and Bliss. They provide a range of options for connecting your window treatments to your smart home device. This makes the process more convenient and attractive than ever.

Now you can put your electric blinds and electric rollers on a schedule or a smart control. We do not need to find a remote control, or give a voice-command if the smart device operates it on it’s own!

The Spectrum of Automatic Shades

Somfy Systems: Leading the charge in home automation, Somfy offers a robust range of motorized solutions. Seamlessly integrate with your existing home automation system, enhancing comfort and control over your environment.

Bliss Automation: Bliss brings to the table innovative, user-friendly automatic options that cater to a modern lifestyle. This smart home technology ensures ease and comfort at an affordable price. Effortlessly pair Alexa or Google Home to any window treatment.

Smart Home Compatibility: Electric blinds are engineered to seamlessly integrate with widely-used home automation systems. You can control window treatments with smartphones, tablets, or voice-controlled devices.

Many popular home automation devices pair to the previously mentioned motors in our shades. RTI offers residential and commercial control of your home theatre. Control4 Smart Homes will send you alerts when your kids get home. Samsung SmartThings syncs thousands of products for every day tasks.

The Advantages of Motorized Window Treatments

  • Enhanced Convenience: Adjust your window coverings without interrupting your activities. Whether you’re in bed, on the couch, or not even at home, using an app for control is easier than ever before.
  • Energy Efficiency: Motorized Blinds adjust based on sunlight and temperature, optimizing your home’s energy savings and comfort levels.
  • Increased Security: Give the appearance of being home even when you’re away. Schedule your shades and blinds to open at preset times of the day.
  • UV Protection: Protect your furniture, floors, and artwork from harmful UV rays. Smart home automation allows schedules to close during the sunniest parts of the day.
  • Natural Lighting: Enjoy the light in your living space on overcast days by using voice commands to open the blinds.
