Alexa Enabled Window Shades

 In Style and Design, Window Treatment Tips

Window treatments set the tone for the interior design. Now, you have many styles, colors, and fabrics to give you just the look you want. They can help filter light and boost energy efficiency, too. Now, you can even add the power of Alexa to the window shades in your home.

Motorized Shades for Comfort and Convenience

Many people choose motorized shades that make them easy to raise and lower. This can be an excellent choice for those who have tall ceilings, have difficulty raising and lowering them, or who simply want the convenience. You can choose motorized shades in vinyl, aluminum, faux wood, fabric, and composite materials. Motorized blinds can be custom-fit to any size window, even non-standard sizes.

Smart-Enabled Window Blinds

Now, your window blinds can become a part of your smart home, too. Any motorized blind can be integrated into Alexa. This gives you more options when it comes to convenience and efficiency.

Motorized window blinds can be operated with wall switches, timers, sensors, and remotes. Hooking them up to Alexa extends the ability to control them with your tablet, smartphone, PC, laptop, or home automation hub. With Alexa, you can even control your blinds with voice commands.

This means that if you forgot to lower or raise the blinds before you left for work, you can easily do it right from your smartphone. You can have complete control over the blind position, too. You can have it raise them partway or all the way. This option does not involve a cord, which means that you can also keep your young ones safe.

With Alexa-integrated motorized window treatments, you can tell it to close the shades during the heat of the day or automatically lower them at night. The best part is that you do not have to worry about forgetting to set the timer. Alexa and motorized window treatments are just what you need to make your home as comfortable and energy-efficient as possible.
