Discover How Automated Window Treatments Manage Summer Heat and More

The hottest months of the year are upon us here in Evergreen and the surrounding areas. Though it’s fun to participate in exciting activities outside with family and friends, it’s also nice to retreat indoors to cool off and relax afterward.

While you’re spending time indoors, why not surround yourself with stylish decor that looks good while making your life easier. With motorized shades, you can have just that experience! The tap of a button, a swipe of a finger, or a voice command can adjust all of the window treatments in your home in seconds. To explore how this innovative smart home solution brings more than style to your Colorado home, take a look below at our blog on the topic.

Climate Control

Beautiful mountain views are one of the perks of Colorado living, but the sun shines bright and hot, especially in the summer months. Consider motorized shades to keep your interiors cool and prevent your HVAC system from running in overdrive to maintain a specified temperature. 

Integrate temperature sensors on your windows that signal your shades to operate when the room reaches a too-warm temperature. Shades lower automatically without any input from you - they lower automatically to prevent additional heat gain in your living spaces. This feature is also useful in the winter, with shades rising to let in natural, warming sun rays when rooms become too cold.

Not only are homeowners able to manage their comfort with motorized shades and blinds, but these valuable solutions also reduce glare and filter harmful UV rays from damaging skin or furnishings. Depending on your fabric selections, you can fully block out light with blackout fabrics or filter light while maintaining your views with sheer fabrics; the choice is yours!

Add Peace of Mind

Motorized shades offer more than stylish climate control, though. Add a layer of security and privacy from peering eyes with the tap of a button on an on-wall keypad or smart device. Program your window treatments to lower automatically at dusk so the neighbors can’t see into your home while interior lights shine. 

Or, if you’re away for a few days for a business trip or vacation, schedule your shades to run an automatic occupancy program that simulates the seemingly random raising and lowering of shades throughout the daytime and lowering in the evenings. Burglars look for easy targets, and you won’t be one, thanks to this feature. Thieves won’t be able to track if your home is vacant or not, because it will seem like someone is at home due to activity.
