Motorized shades or Automated Shades are getting more and more popular, and with good reason. They offer convenience, comfort, security, and energy efficiency. Read on to discover why they are an elegant and practical choice for your Boston area home.
The Benefits of Investing in Automated or Motorized Window Shades
Busy Boston-area residents don’t have the time to tangle with adjusting clunky window treatments. With motorized shades, you get the convenience of being able to control your shades with the touch of a button on a remote or smartphone, or with a command on your smart home system. They are great for hard-to-reach places and they operate remotely, which offers a big security benefit. Travelling outside of Boston? No one needs to know, because you can control your shades with your smartphone from a sandy beach half a world away. They are also safer for children and pets because they don’t require cords. Motorized shades are more energy-efficient, and some models can sense the amount of sunlight and adjust the level of light filtering through the shades accordingly. And to top it all off, motorized shades are stylish, with thousands of fabrics choices available.
How do Motorized Shades Work?
Motorized shades can be wired, wireless, or battery powered, and are quiet and easy to maintain. They work with a remote, smartphone app, or by command on your smart home system and are compatible with Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. With PowerView® Motorization, you can operate each window individually, by room, or by scene, so that you can create a custom schedule for a few or all windows at different times of the day. Our experienced team at Innuwindow will help you find the most beautiful motorized shades for your Boston-area home and have them installed quickly and efficiently.
How Long do Motorized Shades Last?
The most exciting part of getting motorized shades is that you won’t have to shop for window treatments for your home again unless you really want to! Hunter Douglas motorized shades, with their gentle, remote operation and durable motors have an expected lifetime of more than ten years, with a battery life exceeding one year. In the past, you may have spent many hours trying to find the right window treatments and found yourself looking for new ones within a couple of years.

Are Motorized Shades Worth it?
Once you make the decision to get motorized shades for your home, you will never look back. Like many investments in high quality items, you may question at first if you “need” them and if they are worth the cost. But when you add up all of the money and time spent purchasing window treatments only to be disappointed by their lack of function or style, you will realize that motorized shades quickly pay for themselves and are a great value over time. Innuwindow can help you make the transition to motorized shades in your Boston-area home quickly and easily with results you will be pleased with for years to come.
