Don’t Believe These 3 Myths About Motorized Shades

16 October 2020

Does anyone actually like wrestling with a cord when opening or closing window treatments? What if you could control them with just the push of a button on your smart device or on-wall keypad? Automated shades make using your window treatments simple. Still, we understand that you might have some hesitations. Read on to learn three myths that you shouldn’t believe about motorized shades when considering them for your Cave Creek, AZ home.


Motorized Shades Are Too Expensive

One common misconception is that automated shades are too expensive to be worth it. While the price tag on motorized window treatments may loom larger than that of standard window treatments, you still receive a bang for your buck when you factor in potential energy savings. By scheduling your shades to lower automatically at peak heat times, you can preserve the cool air in your home without overworking your HVAC system. Instead of running around the house to adjust shades when it gets too hot, your shades will adjust for you. Integrate temperature sensors to trigger your shades to close when rooms get too warm and even command your shades from your smartphone when you’re not home!

Motorized Shades Are Limited in Styles

Your home is your place to show off your personal style. You might be hesitant to install automated window treatments because you’re afraid that their limit in styles won’t complement your interior design. But there is no need to worry! Motorized window treatments come in a variety of different styles and colors, so you can choose shades that blend in seamlessly with your home’s aesthetic. Beyond roller shades are wood blinds, drapes, horizontal sheer blinds, honeycomb shades, and more. Enjoy the best of both function and style.

Motorized Shades Can Be Unsafe

Another reason you might be hesitant to opt for motorized window treatments is that you think motorized shades are unsafe for children and pets. The opposite is true: Motorized shades are safer than regular shades. Most manual shades rely on cords to be controlled, and it is easy for the more vulnerable members of our families to become tangled and put themselves in danger. Motorized window treatments move up and down with whisper-quiet motors, which stay safely tucked away in the tubes, and are controlled via a wall keypad, remote, smart device, or even by voice, so cords and rods are not necessary. Children and pets can play near them without a need for worry.
