Making a move to use automated blinds might be a big and difficult decision for some people. If you have never used automated or motorized blinds before, then the familiarity of manual shades might seem more appealing. Before making any big decisions you should weigh the different advantages and disadvantages to your choices. If you are already familiar with manual blinds, then it can be good to learn about the reasons why motorized blinds can also be a good choice. Here are some of those reasons.
Security is often very important to building owners and homeowners. Protecting your home and valuables while you are away is important, and shades can add to that security. Some of the lights on motorized shades might make a would-be intruder think twice before attempting to break in. At the same time, many motorized blinds are programmable, which means that even while you are away you can have your blinds open and close at set times of day if you desire.
Automated blinds work at the touch of a button, so opening and closing the blinds for a large number of windows is suddenly a very easy task. If you have all the windows on a program so that they automatically open and close at certain times, then this task is even simpler! The fact that the opening and closing is all taken care of by a machine makes these blinds extremely convenient. You also don’t have to deal with any cords, which means less frustration for you with cords that get stuck or tangled and a safer environment for any children that might be around your shades.
Not only do motorized shades work for you, but they don’t cost a whole lot to operate and may even qualify you for certain tax benefits. Some government bodies are starting to reward people for taking steps toward becoming greener, and automated shades may fall in this category. If so, you could get a tax rebate for your installation. You will need to check to see if you live in an area that qualifies for the rebate, but this might just save you a little more money!
Although some people might take a little convincing, choosing to install automated blinds definitely has its benefits for your office or home. Such blinds can add to the security of your home, they are convenient and programmable so you don’t have to worry about opening and closing them yourself, and they may even qualify you for a tax rebate. These are all great reasons to look into motorized shades.
