4 Reasons to Choose Motorized Window Treatments

On your beach vacation, as the morning sun rises above the ocean waves, you sip your coffee. Back home, your motorized blinds tilt to the exact angle you like and your motorized drapes glide halfway open, even though you’re hundreds of miles away from home. No one knows you’re not home–not even your neighbors.

You can get these motorized drapes and power blinds with Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation from Imagine More in Windsor, Colorado, Imagine More in Longmont, Colorado, and Imagine More in Cheyenne, WY. Check out these four reasons you should invest in motorized window treatments for your home today.

Reason #1: Security and Privacy

Whether you’re on vacation, out late at a sporting event, or you’re just coming home late from work, creating a schedule so your window treatments open and shut on a schedule gives the impression that you’re home, even if you’re not. This security measure mimics the look of occupancy, which is a great way to protect your home against potential intruders.

Putting your shades on a schedule is helpful if you’re home, too. Shades block out the early morning sun and rise when you want them to, giving you privacy when you need it, allowing you to spend time with your family and friends without thinking about adjusting your shades or wondering about prying eyes. And since PowerView® Automation is all motorized, it’s super convenient.

Reason #2: Convenience

Have you ever tugged on a blind cord only to have it tilt hopelessly in one direction? You can get it straightened out, but it’s a tug of war.

PowerView® Automation allows you to open or close all your window treatments slowly and smoothly using the Hunter Douglas Pebble® remote or with the PowerView® app on your phone or tablet to get them exactly where you want them. Whether you want to see out and reduce the light, let all the light in, or block out all the light completely, you can have variable light control at the touch of a button without the complicated twisting, turning, pulling, and adjusting of potentially-dangerous cords or finicky wands.

You can create a schedule so your motorized blinds open and close at specific times or even activate your motorized drapes with your voice when you partner PowerView® Automation with your smart home devices like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple’s Siri.

Reason #3: Energy Efficiency

Windows let heat in your home during the summer and cold in during winter. While drapes and blinds help because by adding an extra layer of insulation and controlling light, motorization goes the extra mile. They can control your shades to allow sun in or block it out when you need it most to lock in heat or prevent the sun from streaming in and warming your interiors. All of this leads to a lower energy bill. Consider:

  • Creating a summer schedule so your shades, drapes, or blinds let in the morning light while it’s cooler, and you can benefit from all the natural light. Then, have them close during the hot part of the day to keep the cool air in and the warm air out. Schedule them to open as the sun sets, maximizing the cooler temperatures.
  •  In winter, set them to open at sunrise and throughout the day to let in warmth and natural light, so you can switch off interior lights. Then, close them at night to keep the warmth in.
  • Tying motorized blinds into your existing smart home technology so they open or close to modulate your home’s temperature, without turning on the heat or the air.

Reason #4: Safer for Kids and Pets

If you have kids or pets, you want to keep them safe. PowerView® Automation makes your blinds and drapes safer for kids and pets because there aren’t any dangling cords to pull. The ropes and loops can be very appealing to little ones and can cause a choking hazard or the potential for accidental strangulation. You can have motorized blinds and drapes in every room, even right next to your newborn’s crib.

Your children can sleep soundly in their rooms at night or take naps throughout the day with windows darkened with your favorite treatments suing PowerView® Automation.
