Top 5 Reasons to Automate Your Window Blinds

  1. Live a more convenient lifestyle. With automated window blinds, there’s no more getting up to open and close the blinds, or worrying if you forgot to close the blinds before leaving the house.

Bonus: check out our complete starter guide for building a connected home if you want even more convenience and comfort at home.

  1. Save on energy costs. Automated window blinds can help save on energy costs by conserving light usage throughout the day. Simply schedule your blinds to open and close at sunrise and sunset, and voila! Or should we say, cha-ching?
  1. Live sustainably. With energy savings also comes a more sustainable lifestyle that doesn’t waste resources, since you will be using more natural light throughout the day.
  1. Keep your home safe and secure. Automated window blinds can complement your home security system by making sure that no one can see into your home at night if you forget to close your blinds. And if you’re away from home or on vacation, you can even schedule your blinds to maintain normal routines, so that your home doesn’t appear empty.
  1. Be more productive throughout the day. Waking up to natural light can lead to a more productive day, and less grogginess in the morning. With automated window blinds, you can schedule your blinds to wake you up as the sun rises, for a more refreshing start to your morning.
