Motorized and integrated window treatments for your home

Jun 04, 2020


The flip of a switch. The touch of a button. The sound of your voice. With motorized window coverings, opening and closing your home to the outside world is that easy. However, with so many different motorization options, it can be confusing to decide which integration method is best for you. In today’s blog, I’m going to go over our three most popular motorization methods to help you figure out the best way to turn your home into a smart home.



Having a switch to control your curtains or shades is the epitome of efficiency. Simply flip it as you’re turning on your lights, and you’ll be basked in warm sunlight upon entering a room. Not only does it make opening your curtains easier, but it optimizes the use of your windows as a light source. Depending on how your house is wired, switches could be a simple and convenient way to operate your motorized windows.


Remotes and Smartphones:

Forgot to shut the blinds on your way out the door? No worries! If your motorized blinds are connected to a remote or your smartphone, you can close them easily on the go. This integration method is also a great option for senior citizens or physically challenged individuals who struggle to access cords or switches. From the comfort of a couch, bed, or wheelchair, all it takes is the tap of a button to enjoy some sunshine (or some privacy!)
