DEBUNKING COMMON MYTHS ABOUT MOTORIZED SHADES
DON’T LET FALSE INFORMATION KEEP YOU FROM TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THESE ADVANCED WINDOW TREATMENTS
Are you still relying on traditional curtains and blinds in your otherwise smart home because you have heard bad things about motorized shades? You’re mistaken and missing out big time!
Don’t let the wrong information keep you from enjoying the benefits of motorized shades in your Darien, CT, home. Read on to get your myths busted and prepare for another home upgrade.
MYTH #1 – IT’S A HASSLE TO INSTALL AND OPERATE THEM
This might have been true in the earliest days of technological development, but not anymore. Like all other smart devices, motorized window shades have come a long way from their initial days. The ones available today offer easy installation and even easier operation. Modern smart shades are manufactured with the user’s comfort and convenience in mind.
Top brands like Lutron and Hunter Douglas offer a wide range of options, including various types of shades, fabrics, and colors. Their customizable designs ensure that you will find the perfect set of motorized shades for your home’s décor. Furthermore, these brands offer one-touch control systems, allowing you to manage every shade in your home from a single device. If you already have a home automation platform like Control4, a smart home installer can easily integrate your shades into this system.
MYTH #2 – THEY ARE NOISY
This is probably the biggest and most widely prevailing misconception about motorized window shades. However, this is another perception that is no longer relevant. The shades available today are designed to be quiet. They operate silently, only making a feeble whirring sound at maximum, so you can rest assured that they will never disrupt your peaceful day!
MYTH #3 – THEY ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL TYPES OF WINDOWS
In fact, they are! Several different types of motorized shades are available for various window designs, ensuring every homeowner can benefit from them. No matter what type or size of windows you have, there are automated shades that will work for you.
MYTH #4 – THEY ARE ONLY FOR INDOOR USE
There are motorized window treatments available for both indoor and outdoor use. Indoor shades can improve privacy and reduce energy conservation, and outdoor shades can protect your outdoor seating areas from strong sunlight, winds, rain, and bugs. Both varieties come with advanced integration features and can be paired with a range of smart home devices and a centralized control system.
MYTH #5 – THEY ARE HIGH-MAINTENANCE
Many motorized window shades run on batteries, which can last for 3 to 5 years (depending on the frequency of use). There is also the option to use rechargeable batteries, saving you the replacement cost. A large majority of motorized shades available today are cordless and operated via remote. This minimizes operational wear and tear, making them last much longer than conventional window shades.
