What Are ​​Smart ​​Blinds?

Smart ​​blinds, also known ​​as motorized or ​​automatic blinds, can ​​be remotely controlled ​​using a smartphone ​​app, voice assistant, or ​​home automation ​​system. This ​​allows you ​​to open​​ and close your ​​blinds without ​​having to go ​​over to the ​​window and ​​adjust them ​​manually. Smart blinds ​​are integrated ​​with motors, ​​sensors, and ​​artificial intelligence ​​to provide automation, scheduling, ​​and voice ​​control.

Benefits of ​​Smart ​​Blinds

There are many benefits to installing smart blinds in your Seattle home:

●      Convenience - With just a tap or voice command, you can control your blinds from anywhere in your home. Never worry about getting up to open and close blinds again.

●      Energy Efficiency - Smart blinds can help reduce your energy bills. Automatically close blinds during the day to block heat from sunlight and help keep your home cooler. Open blinds when the weather is nice to let natural light in and reduce reliance on artificial lighting. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, having the right window attachments, such as smart blinds, can save up to 30% of energy costs in heating and cooling.

●      Privacy & Light Control - Schedule your blinds to automatically adjust throughout the day for privacy and ideal lighting. Keep blinds closed at night for privacy and crack them open in the morning to let in natural light.

●      Security - Make your home look occupied while you're away by scheduling blinds to mimic daily opening and closing. This ​deters ​potential ​burglars. You can even automate blind routines when you're on vacation.

●      Integration - Smart blinds work with today's smart home platforms like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, and more. Voice control your blinds for total convenience.

●      Style - Motorized blinds now come in a variety of colors and materials from trusted brands to match your home's style. Experience ​​the perfect​​ blend of ​​fashion and ​​function.
