Motorized Blinds

These days, there are many options for homeowners looking to install motorized window shades. Motorized window shades allow for push button operation, instantly transforming an overly bright room. Electric shades can also manage excess heat created by sunlight, restore privacy, and prevent U/V light from damaging expensive furnishings.

Shades, which feature one piece of fabric, and blinds, which feature slats that tilt, both have many modern motorized designs that allow homeowners a multitude of programming options, including controlling their blinds from a wall pad, infrared remote control, RF remote control, and even the internet using their home PC. Motorized blinds are perfectly suited to large or hard to reach windows and can be set using timers and sun sensors for additional security.

Leading designs make it possible for homeowners to blend natural and artificial light, allowing the sun’s natural glow to integrate with the motorized shades and other lighting options. Buyers can also choose from a wide range of styles, including cellular/honeycomb designs; wood, faux wood, and woven wood; mini, pleated, and roller blinds; solar screens and sheer shades. Even motorized blind fabrics are sold not only according to how they’ll match home décor, but by their light blocking, heating, and cooling properties.

Many websites exist to help homeowners integrate motorized window blinds into an automated home. They can even be used to in conjunction with opaque shades as a screen and the perfect compliment to an LCD or Plasma projector based home theater!
