Smart blinds and shades can stand alone or be part of a smart home automation system. In either case, they work by opening and closing your blinds and shades on a specific schedule, or you can use these systems to open and close your blinds when you like – no matter where you happen to be. Even when you’re at work or traveling, smart blinds and shades allow you to have maximum control over your window treatments at home.
If you have a smart home automation system, you can control your shades and blinds as part of that system with a Z-Wave bridge and RTS interface (ZRTSI by Somfy). If you don’t have an automated home system, you can use My-Link, Somfy’s Wi-Fi system, to control your smart blinds and shades with a mobile device.
There are lots of reasons why you may want to invest in smart blinds and shades for your home:
1. You Invest in Quality Furnishings and Electronics
The sunlight – even in Canada – can wreak havoc with electronics and quality furniture. It can cause fading and even damage. Blinds and shades are a great way to protect your possessions, but they only work if you open and close the blinds at the right times. With smart shades and blinds, you can open and close your blinds on a schedule or when you notice the sun outside. Either way, you have more control so you can protect more of your home.
2. You Travel a Lot or Work Long Hours
For the busy professional, smart home blinds and shades are an ideal solution. If you travel frequently, you can open and close your blinds to give the impression someone’s home. You can also open and close your blinds when you’re at work or overseas so your furnishings and your home stay protected.
3. You Want to Improve the Value of Your Home
A smart home automation system and smart blinds and shades are a great way to improve the functionality and amenities in your home. If you’re planning on selling or renting soon, this simple improvement can increase the quality and asking price of your property.
4. Comfort Is Important to You
Do you really want to get up when you’re sitting in your living room just to close the drapes in the dining room because the sun is shining? With smart blinds and shades, you get to control all the blinds and shades in your home with the touch of a button.
5. You Have Skylights or Higher Windows
Closing and opening blinds on skylights or taller windows can be difficult – especially if you have mobility issues. With smart blinds and shades, you can easily open and close your window coverings and control them more efficiently – even if you have a medical condition.
