Creating a modern home is all about practicality, style and efficiency. Automated blinds tick all three of these boxes and are an essential investment to bring your home up to date. Automated window coverings are electrically operated to reduce the need for manual operation. Not only do they make processes quick and simple, but they also boost the energy efficiency and security of your home. 

Benefits of Automated Blinds for Modern Homes

Convenience and Control

Automated blinds are the perfect way to add convenience and control to your home. With the touch of a button or a voice command, you can open and close your blinds, adjust the level of privacy, and even set schedules for your blinds to open and close automatically. 

This makes operating your blinds quick and straightforward – especially useful if your home features a lot of windows where manual opening and closing is time-consuming. Automating your blinds is also especially helpful for people who have trouble reaching high windows or who want to be able to control their blinds from the bed or the couch. Whatever your reasoning, automated blinds make your home much easier to manage. 

Creating a truly modern home is only possible by investing in smart technology. Automated blinds are a great example of smart technology that aims to make your home easier to manage by linking all of your devices. You will be able to control all of your smart devices – including smart blinds, lighting, plugs, CCTV or video doorbells – by incorporating a smart hub device such as the TaHoma Smart Hub

You can even create completely individual ‘scenes’ that incorporate multiple smart devices. For example; you could create a movie night scene whereby your living room lights are dimmed and your TV is turned on at 8 PM every Saturday. The possibilities are endless. 

Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

Automated blinds can also help you save money on your energy bills. By controlling the amount of sunlight that enters your home, you can keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This can lead to significant savings on your heating and cooling costs.

Heat is lost through your windows in the winter and blinds add a valuable layer of insulation to your home. Automating your home’s blinds allows you to open your smart window coverings as soon as the sun comes up, allowing light to enter your home and heat up naturally. Likewise, heat will be trapped when your blinds automatically close at sunset.  

Automated blinds are just as practical in the summertime when the temperatures start to increase. Blinds provide valuable shade from the sun and will prevent your home from heating up. You might even choose to have individual blinds close at different points of the day when sunlight hits certain windows. Keeping your home cooler means you’re less likely to use electric fans or air conditioning (if you have it) – both of which can add the cost of your bills over time.   

Enhanced Privacy and Security

Automated blinds can also improve the privacy and security of your home. By blocking out unwanted sunlight and views, you can create a more comfortable and secure environment. This is especially useful for homes that overlook other houses or face onto a street. 

Automated blinds can also be programmed to close automatically when you’re away for long periods of time. Burglars are more likely to be deterred as they will assume someone is still in the building and they see your binds opening and closing. 

Aesthetics and Design

In addition to their practical benefits, automated blinds can also add a touch of style and sophistication to your home. There are a variety of different styles and finishes available, so you can find the perfect blinds to complement your décor. Not only this, but automated blinds are fully cordless making for a sleek and modern design.
