Blind Motorization 101

Living in the age of information and technology, we’ve automated many of our most basic tasks: Running low on milk? Your refrigerator can tell you. Forgot to lock your front door? Do so from your phone. Too much sun coming in? Lower your blinds without ever leaving the couch.

That’s right, with the push of a button or the sound of your voice, you can raise and lower your blinds as much as you’d like. So whether you’re going for convenience, safety, or a little of both, we’ve got the motorized treatments that will suit your home for years to come!

Benefits of Motorized Window Treatments

Ease & Convenience

Opening and closing your blinds throughout the day may not seem like the most difficult task, but motorization can make a world of difference for some people.


Having your blinds open or closed while you’re out of the house is no longer your only two options. With motorized treatments, you’re able to set timers and utilize sun and temperature sensors to customize your automated user-experience.

Hard-to-Reach Windows

Hard-to-reach windows are often left uncovered to take advantage of the natural light that they let in. With motorized blinds, shades, and shutters, you still have the benefit of natural light without relinquishing control.

Energy Efficiency

Uncovered windows allow excess heat, cold air, and UV rays into your home, making it more difficult to regulate your home’s temperature and ultimately adding to your electric bill. By adding motorized blinds, you’re able to cover and uncover your windows based on the temperature at just the touch of a button.

Streamlined Look

Window cords can look messy if you’re not paying attention to where they’re placed. But by converting to motorized treatments, you eliminate their need altogether.

Your Child’s Safety

It is every parent’s greatest fear that their child gets hurt, so naturally, most parents baby-proof their homes. However, window treatments and cords are often a forgotten safety hazard. Children are curious, often stepping on stools and toys to look out the window. Unfortunately, a minor slip can become a major injury if they’re near a cord.

According to a recent study, one child dies every month and two are injured every day in a window blind-related incident.

Fortunately, there is a simple solution to protect little ones from the dangers of cords — get rid of them. By installing motorized blinds, shades, and shutters, the risk of your child getting injured by this often-forgotten hazard is completely eliminated.

Integrating with Smart Technology

Integrating smart technology into your everyday life has never been this simple, accessible, or affordable. Motorized window treatments are compatible with most of the technology already living in your home, including:

  • Sun sensors: Rather than worrying about the negative effects of harsh rays on your furniture and flooring, you can automatically protect your home by installing sun sensors. These sensors adjust your shades to control the amount of sunlight coming into your home.
  • Temperature sensors: Much like the sun sensors, temperature sensors will change the height of your shades based on temperature, protecting your home from excessive heat and harmful UV rays.
  • Apps: Controlling your window treatments can be as simple as sending a text or downloading an app. When you’re not at home, program them to adjust at specific times of the day, if you’re someone who likes to travel, this can deter thieves by giving your home that “lived in” look.
  • Alexa & Google Home: If you have Alexa or Google Home, you can also control your window treatments with voice commands.
