3 Tips For Ordering Smart Motorized Shades For Your Home


If you want your window coverings to be cutting edge, you are going to want to invest in some smart motorized shades. Smart motorized shades take the idea of motorized shades to the next level as with smart motorized shades you can connect the shades to your smart home control device and program when your shades open and close. Before ordering smart motorized shades for your home, there is some work you need to do. 

Tip #1: Check Your Window Molding

The first thing you need to do is make sure you don't just measure the size of the window, but you measure the depth of the window as well. You need to make sure your window set-up will support the depth of the configuration of the motorized blinds. If your windows are not deep enough, you will need to go with an outside mount instead of an inside mount.

When measuring the depth of your windows, check how the molding is made. Make sure the molding is strong enough to support having motorized shades screwed into the molding.

Tip #2: Check on Smart Home Integration

The second thing you need to do is check on the integration capacity of the smart blinds. What type of smart home systems are the blinds designed to work with? You want to make sure the blinds will function with whatever smart home technology you already invested in.

If the smart home integration is a little too much, you can also get smart blinds that come with a remote control that you can use to open and close the blinds. Some remote-controlled smart shades also allow for programing without integration into a smart home system.

Tip #3: Pay for Professional Installation

Finally, you are going to want to pay for the professional installation of your blinds. The process of removing your old window treatments, measuring and installing your new blinds, and then integrating them with your smart home control system and setting up the remote controller can be time-consuming, and the job requires a lot of precision. A professional will have the tools, patience, and experience to install your new smart blinds without you having to take a day to do so yourself.

If you want shades that are easy to control, consider installing smart motorized shades in your home. There are no cords to deal with, and you can use a remote control or your integrated smart home system to open and close the shades, and you can even program your shades to open and close at certain times.
