Why Your Home Needs Outdoor Shades


Create a whole new living space without building a new room with outdoor shades

We’ve often pointed out the many benefits of motorized shades to homeowners through our blogs. But did you know there are outdoor shades you can use in your smart home? Outdoor shades have a wide range of benefits to offer. From keeping out pesky bugs to regulating temperature, here are some of the reasons we recommend outdoor shades for our clients in Westchester County, NY.

Sun Filtration and Temperature Control

While it’s good to soak yourself up in natural sunlight on your patio, at times, scorching heat can bake your patio and make you uncomfortable. Just the same, direct sunlight can create a distracting glare that makes the space entirely unusable.

You can easily control the shades via your smartphone or some other control keypad to lower them so the sunlight is blocked during hot summer days. It will keep your patio cooler so you can enjoy your time at a comfortable temperature. Similarly, during colder days, you can close the shades to insulate the patio and keep out the frigid winds.

Keep the Bugs Away

Your patio is a great place to enjoy meals with family. Unfortunately, bugs are a huge problem that can spoil mealtimes. But with special sealed-in outdoor shades, you can keep the bugs away for a better time in your patio. No more swatting at flies throughout your dinner, brunch or lunch just because you want to enjoy some fresh air.

Keep the Party Going

Outdoor shades let you respond to changing outdoor conditions, so you don’t have to hurry indoors when the weather turns sour. If you have an outdoor TV, speakers and furniture in your patio or deck, they’re often weather resistant. That doesn’t mean you are. Avoid disruptive loud noises and rain by closing the shades whenever a storm hits.

Total Control

The best part about outdoor shades is that they offer are easy to control. You can use any preferred method from a remote control, smartphone, or even voice command to open or close the shades. With a tap of your fingers, you can lower the shades from any place without even having to get up. You even have the ability to schedule these changes to happen automatically; for example, direct shades to close at the times of day you know sunlight hits you deck directly.
