Motorized window treatments or Smart window treatments have been on the market for a few years now. Technology is ever-evolving, even in your window coverings, to give you much better choices all around. The cost of motorized window treatments is decreasing since there is now competition in the market between two or more manufacturers, and the technology is simple to operate, streamlined with your existing Smart home or business hub, and it gives you many great benefits as well.


What Are Motorized Window Treatments?


Automated window treatments allow you to open, close, and adjust your window treatments with the touch of a button on remote control, with the help of an app on your Smartphone or tablet, or simply by using your voice commands with Alexa or Google Assistant. You can program them to adjust at pre-set times and then sit back with peace of mind knowing that they will close by themselves when you leave home.


Is It Worth Getting Motorized Window Treatments?


Along with the falling prices for this great convenience item, the motors on the systems are also being upgraded. They are very quiet, very durable, and long-lasting, and there are several power options available as well. When your Smart window treatments are integrated with your Smart hub, several items can all work together to save you valuable money on your energy costs all year round, so this product actually pays for itself in a short time.


Benefits of Motorized Window Treatments



Motorized window treatments can increase your home or business’s energy efficiency greatly when used in combination with other Smart devices at the same time. By having your window treatments closed in the warmest part of the day, they will block out the harsh UV sun rays and heat, so your home can be cooler. You can also set your thermostat to be at a higher temperature when you are at work and then cool down to a more comfortable temperature before you get home. Not using artificial lighting during the hottest part of the day, in combinate with these other items, is the maximum in energy-efficient homes and businesses.

Integrates into a Smart Home or Business

Your custom automated window treatments integrate into your existing Smart home or business hub in a matter of minutes. When you order custom motorized window treatments, the company that you order from will make sure they fit and operate properly, program them for you, and teach you how to use the app and controls.

Safe for Children and Pets

These types of window coverings are pet- and child-safe because they are cordless with no dangling cords for small children or pets to get tangled in and cause harm to them. You merely set your program and scenes, or manually override the system with a touch of a button to change the position of your window treatments.

Offers Security

It’s a proven fact that when a thief is targeting a home to break into, they will choose one with the window treatments open because they can see what type of items you have inside. Programming your window treatments all to close when you leave home for work, or to run errands can add an extra layer of security to your home. You won’t need to worry about if you closed your window treatments if you program them, and you can check this on your Smartphone or other mobile devices if you aren’t sure.

Convenient to Operate

You can choose from several methods of operation with automated window treatments. You can program them to work automatically on a preset schedule. You can also override the schedule with just a mere touch of a button on a handheld remote control or a wall-mounted remote control. You can also operate it with any Smart device using an app on a phone, tablet, or desktop.
