Prevent Damage on Home Furnishings
Did you get sunburned this summer? We certainly hope you didn’t, but it does illustrate the potential damage of the sun’s strong rays. Not only can the sun burn and damage your delicate skin, but in a similar way it damages your furniture and home décor, such as paintings, leather sofas, carpet, and more. Once exposed to UV light, things like chairs, rugs, and sofas lose their vibrant colors and fade. Unfortunately, sun damage is usually irreversible. That’s why it’s important to control the sunlight in your home with shades, and automating them will make it even easier to prevent this damage.
Often our busy lives can prevent us from remembering to draw the curtains or blinds. With smart home automation, the technology does it all for you. Our smart systems can bring the shades down as soon as the sun is high by either detecting sunlight using a special light sensor, or by recognizing a certain time of day – like 10 a.m. when the sun is bright. You can program your roller shades to go down in an “Away” setting so that they block out the light all day long while you’re at work and also give your home privacy. And then manually control them while you’re there using a wireless remote or your mobile device. No matter the situation, you’ll be able to protect your expensive and treasured décor all year long.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Installing motorized shades is a sure way to increase the value of your property. Any smart system that can automatically adjust the lights, shades and more will help entice home buyers if you ever decide to sell your property. According to HGTV, 46 percent of home buyers see smart home technology as important for their current and future residences. Further, they would even sacrifice 1,000 feet of space to have more technology in their homes. Items like smart thermostats, lighting control, and multi-room music are on demand in the real estate market. Not only are motorized shades reasonably priced, but they are also easy to install and maintain. So this is an investment that will give you benefits now and down the road if you need to ever display that “For Sale” sign.
Add Beauty to Your Interior Design
We’ve said it before and we’ll keep saying it: technology doesn’t have to be ugly. On the contrary, today’s technologies are either completely hidden in most designs or look sharp enough to be on display. In the case of shade control, you get to pick the color, fabric and style! You have so many fun options. The only technology on display will be the remote – if you choose to use it — or the mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. We partner with QMotion to bring you the most beautiful styles and home fashions, coupled with the very best technology.
