Why Purchase Motorized Window Coverings?

If the thought of having motorized window coverings sounds too “posh” for you, you might be surprised at all of the benefits. Budget Blinds is proud to partner with Somfy®, a world leader in innovative home automation, and MotorEase™ to bring you an exciting product at an affordable cost.  

Here are a few reasons to consider motorized window coverings:


Energy efficiency 

Motorized window coverings can automatically adjust based on the temperature. Let your automatic blinds do the extra work so your air conditioner or heater doesn’t have to. Automation is a simple way to control both the temperature of your home and your electric bill.

Prevent fabric fading 

Motorized window coverings can be programmed to close when the sun is shining to prevent damage from harmful UV rays.  They help to prevent fabrics, rugs, upholstery, flooring wood floors, and decor from fading.

Protect children and pets 

Motorized window coverings are great for child safety.  Motorized window coverings are cordless, so you never have to worry about dangling cords that could potentially harm small children or pets.  Protect your loved ones from unknown danger.


Motorized window coverings offer an unmatched level of convenience.  This includes wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes and smartphone apps. This is ideal if your home has many windows or windows that are hard to reach. 


Create the perfect “scene” by programming motorized blinds to suit your lifestyle or event. Upgrade your home theater or master bedroom to allow for quick, convenient light-darkening.  Automated actions can be used to create automatic events. Such as raising the shades at sunrise and lowering them at dusk. Add window coverings to your automated smart home.
