HOW MOTORISED CURTAINS & BLINDS IMPROVE HOUSEHOLD EFFICIENCY
Automate, motorise, digitise, simplify… this seems to be the trending mantra that has revolutionised the way the world works. We’re all looking to simplify our work and enhance lifestyle by automating, motorising and digitizing every aspect of our lives.
Without a doubt, you spend the better part of your life in your home and office, so why not make your spaces as convenient, safe and energy efficient as possible?
Motorising curtains and blinds may seem like an insignificant value-add, but once you experience the functionality and flexibility, you’ll wonder how you managed with a manual system.
Let’s understand why automated blinds and curtains are a good solution to increase the convenience energy efficiency of your living space.
Looks smart and convenient operation
Drawing curtains and blinds becomes effortless when you can adjust them with just a click of the button. If you’re couch surfing or reading, or if your curtains have furniture in front of them and difficult to access, you simply have to press a button to get the desired effect. You can also set your blinds to open and close during specific times during the day, to give the impression that you’re at home, even when you’re travelling.
Create a safer environment for children
Cords and chains, especially ones with loops, that are required to manually draw curtains are a choking hazard to young children and pets, as they can unknowingly get entangled in them. With motorised curtains/blinds, you completely eliminate this hazard, making it one of the safest options for parents and pet owners.
Curtains & blinds function better and last longer
Cords and chains can be a little confusing to handle – improper use or excessive force can damage the system and hamper smooth functionality. Controlled and motorised operation of curtains and blinds ensures superior operational efficiency and increased longevity of the product and the system.
Maximise energy efficiency and protect furniture
Maximise energy efficiency in your homes and offices with automated curtains/blinds. Thanks to the convenience and hassle-free operation, you are sure to use natural lighting more, turning off lights and lamps when not required. This will definitely reflect a dip in your electricity bills. You can also protect your furniture from direct sun exposure, by setting the blinds to open and close at appropriate times during the day.
Integrate with Smart Home Systems
If you’re thinking about motorised window coverings, then you probably already have a smart home network or you’re thinking about one, to improve household efficiency. Motorised curtains and blinds can function independently, or can be integrated into your main system and work in conjunction with automated lights, thermostats etc. Efficiency is maximised only when all smart devices are integrated, and work as a cohesive whole.
Motorised curtains and blinds can be custom-designed for your windows and installed by professionals – something that will add to the aesthetics as well as increase the value of your home.
