Can you deny the thrill of “instant” improvisation? Motorized blinds and shades make instant happen. It happens from the comfort of your couch or any remote location.
Tap in or tap out on your remote or smartphone as needed. Your physical world of motorized blinds and shades loads up instantly.
How you move blinds and shades in your home is always at your fingertips. You can also use advanced voice control.
Technology has made our lives easier. You no longer get lost navigating to new areas or carry a Walkman around just to enjoy music. Now, you can ask Alexa how much time is left on the rice cooker. Even better, control it from your smartphones at work.
Window coverings embedded with technology has made the same leap. You need not to interrupt your TV show (as in ‘The Haunting of Hill House’), walk up to the window, lower the shade, and control the glare on the TV screen.
You do that and a lot more “On Demand” and “on the go”—what you want, when you want, and how you want it.
Are Motorized Blinds smart? You bet.
‘Smart’ Motorized Blinds and Shades
What is “smart?” Smart is “working together`.”
Smart is something that does more than its intended, flat function.
How does motorized window coverings fit into the category of “smarts”?
Your intentions are simple. Get beautiful window coverings to create a finishing touch to your room, provide privacy, and help with heating and cooling costs.
Embed “smarts” into the window covering, and it starts to help out with everyday life and makes it simpler.
Get ready to unlock a culture of convenience. Smart homes enable seamless life.
Seamless-life or Science-Fiction
Imagine the morning wake-up scene; your phone alarm rings. Hitting the snooze button triggers your coffee pot to brew. Your body didn’t get a good night’s rest; your mattress senses this and signals your coffee pot to select espresso.
Is this a hot air or a Brave New World? You be the judge.
Add Motorized Blinds to the mix. Now, you are truly graduating towards a connected life. Your shades move as per your schedule—raising them at 6:00 a.m.
Not only they move to your schedule, but you can also pair shades with your home automation system. When Nest Learning Thermostat turns on air conditioning, blinds and shades on the south-facing window move down, reducing energy bills.
You can also operate shades with voice commands using devices from Amazon and Google Assistant.
Stand-alone Motorized Blinds
What if you want to apply smart technology to your current home lifestyle?
You don’t need your home to be pre-wired to enjoy full-scale convenience of motorized window coverings.
What if you are selecting a handful of individual smart devices rather than a truly connected home—Smartwatch wearables, vacuuming robots, and smart refrigerators?
Stand-alone motorized window coverings will still meet your specific needs—enable hard to reach windows, offer kids cord safety and make your life simpler and more convenient.
AA batteries power your shade. You operate the shade using a remote. Our installers connect all dots, program the shade and test its operation. “Voila!” Convenience at your finger-tips.
Motorized Window Coverings – Simple Steps
What if you want to take a step further?
I mean simple baby steps towards connected-home. Switching from music CDs to a subscription streaming service is how I crossed the barrier (remember the iTunes fun – available anytime, anywhere, no matter how you want to play it).
You want to enjoy connectivity: robot vacuum cleaners and internet- connected thermostats. Even a smart doorbell or garage door. What about a medicine bottle with a Wi-Fi-enabled cap to remind a user when to take a pill? My, oh, my.
Wi-Fi is the key to connectivity. All you need is a stable Wi-Fi internet connection.
We connect all your stand-alone motorized window coverings to each other and put them on your mobile device (of your choice – iPhone or Android).
What is next? A simple tap on a mobile device “app”. The supporting mobile-app is powerful, slick and easy to set up.
You don’t need your 15-year-old son or daughter to set this for you. We enable that for you and educate you.
The beauty of all this—no fancy automation system, yet.
Alexa, what are you thankful for?
Don’t want to perform the tap dance on a mobile app. Get yourself a “personal assistant” that has the “ability to remember/do things you forgot to do.”
You can control shades with your voice. Your motorized window coverings can connect to Amazon Echo/Alexa and the Google Assistant.
Moving your shades up and down is now hands-free or tap-free.
Your window coverings got “smarts” – another set of hands, one less thing to remember on a long list of family responsibilities. Yet, you do this with no high-rolling automation system.
What’s next – Alexa, rock, paper, scissors.
Your simple steps towards a connected home are securing a foothold into your seamless life.
