Motorized Window Shades,
7 Benefits Over Manual Shades

Motorized roller shades are quickly becoming a top choice for window treatments among homeowners and business owners. But is motorization really that much better than a manual option? Is the added value of a motor and remote worth the added cost? It comes down to the value you place on the benefits. To help you evaluate, here are 7 benefits of motorized roller shades that make them a superior option:

  1. Convenience: With motorized roller shades, you don't have to physically adjust each shade by hand. Instead of manually moving one shade at a time you can raise or lower 2, 5, or 10 shades simultaneously. You can control them with a remote, a smartphone app, or even voice commands through a smart home device, and this can all be programmed at a certain time of the day. This means every morning you can have the shades go up and every night go down. This saves countless hours over the course of years of going shade by shade.

  2. Accessibility: Motorized roller shades are perfect for hard-to-reach windows, such as skylights or high windows. With a push of a button, you can adjust the shades without the need for a ladder or other equipment.

  3. Energy Efficiency: Motorized shades can be programmed to adjust automatically based on the time of day or temperature, helping to keep your home or office more energy-efficient, even while you are not home. Some motorized shades even have the option of adding a small solar panel to charge the battery if they are DC, so they use up no energy from the house.

  4. Safety: Motorized roller shades eliminate the need for cords and chains, which can be a potential safety hazard for children and pets.

  5. Aesthetics: Motorized roller shades can be integrated seamlessly into your home's design and can be used to enhance the overall aesthetic.

  6. Durability: Motorized roller shades are less prone to wear and tear than manual shades, which can break or become loose over time. Manual roller shades experience different pull tensions and speeds depending on who is operating them, which can wear the clutch and roller. Motorized roller shades always roll up and down with the same pull tension. 

  7. Increased property value: Having motorized roller shades can increase the value of your property. It is a feature that many buyers are looking for in a home.

In summary, motorized roller shades offer a wide range of benefits over manual shades, including convenience, accessibility, energy efficiency, safety, aesthetics, durability and increased property value. With all these benefits, it's no wonder that motorized roller shades are becoming a popular choice among homeowners and business owners.
