The custom window treatments in your home perform many tasks. They let in the filtered light of the sun, block solar heat gain, reduce energy usage, and provide privacy. Until the arrival of smart home automation, they were time-consuming to operate, requiring manual adjusting to control the level of natural light.
Thanks to today’s technology, that has changed. Now, your shades raise and lower throughout the day based on the direct sunlight and temperature. They protect your home’s interior from damaging UV rays while letting in the beauty of natural light. With one touch on an elegant in-wall keypad or touchscreen, you can raise and lower every shade in your home, one at a time or simultaneously.
While it’s one of the most popular smart home technologies, some homeowners wonder how these shades will blend in with their home’s design and if “motorized” shades mean “motorized” sounds.
We’re here to dispel any myths and share the design trends in smart window coverings transforming homes in La Cañada Flintridge, CA. Let’s explore the many options.
