Benefits of Motorized Shades and Blinds

April 21, 2022

Motorized shades and blinds add a range of practical and aesthetic benefits to homes and businesses of all sizes – even potentially increasing your property value. In this blog entry, the Florida shade and blind installation experts here at Design Your Blinds will detail how motorized blinds can benefit your residential property.

Easy Operation

If you don’t want to adjust your blinds constantly, motorized blinds are a great choice. Modern motorized blinds are intuitive, and can be scheduled to open and close either at specific ties of the day, or when exterior temperature reaches a certain level – all controlled through a smart device application, or a remote.

Child and Pet Safety

Corded or looped window treatments can be dangerous for children or pets. Motorized blinds offer peace of mind, making them ideal for any property that houses babies, toddlers, or pets.

Energy Efficiency

Motorized blinds allow you to control the amount of sunlight in your property while also providing insulation. Keeping motorized blinds open allows you to switch off lights and use less heat in the Winter. They can be programmed to close or open at specific times of the day, offering a great amount of lighting and energy efficiency, potentially lowering your monthly utility bills.

Smart Home Integration

Motorized blinds can be integrated with smart home hubs for maximum convenience. When paired with a smart thermostat, motorized blinds can automatically lower or open when certain temperature or weather types are detected – avoiding the activation of an HVAC system, and saving you money on your energy bill.

Sun Damage Protection

Motorized blinds can help protect your flooring, furniture, and valuables by opening and closing at specific times, protecting your belongings from the fading rays of the sun. This feature is ideal for homes with many windows, and especially hard to reach windows.


One benefit of automated motorized blinds is their ability to make it appear that people are present in your property even when it’s empty by opening and closing at specifically programmed times. This functions as a deterrent for burglars who are scoping out an empty house to break into.

Control Options

Motorized window blinds can be controlled with a wide range of methods, from smartphone application to wall mounted wireless switches, and even a battery powered remote we recommend using both a wall mounted switch and a remote for maximum convenience – and those interested can opt to control blinds with voice control features!
