Get Smart, Get Smart Shades

Today, everything is SMART and your home should be no exception. Budget Blinds, North America’s #1 provider of custom window coverings and the most established name in smart home technology are the smartest choice out there. Now, opening and closing your shades with the touch of a button is easier than ever— talk about convenience! Automated window coverings offer many benefits. They reduce the wear and tear that comes from manual operation and can be set on timers to open and close at your preferred time of day. With various automated options from Budget Blinds, you can feel confident you are getting the best window coverings available. Here are a few reasons why Smart Shades should be added to your home décor:

Energy Savings

Program your window coverings on timers to open and close at specific times of the day to save on energy costs. Energy-efficient window coverings provide effective insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer.

Safety

It is important to not overlook basic household items such as window coverings when childproofing your home.  Automated window coverings eliminate the need for dangling cords so they are both kid-friendly and pet-safe. Making window treatments safer for homes with infants, toddlers, children, and pets is one of Budget Blinds’ top priorities.

Security and Privacy

Timers allow you to open and close your window coverings on a predetermined schedule when you’re home or on vacation. Giving an outside impression as though someone is home at all times. In addition, privacy is just a click away with Smart Shades. They offer complete privacy even with the hard to reach windows. Control the amount of privacy you want in your home with automated window coverings — you won’t be disappointed!

UV Protection

Automated shades prevent harmful UV rays from entering the room. Program your window coverings to close when the sun is shining brightly to keep fabrics, rugs, upholstery, and artwork from fading.

Convenience

Finally, what’s better than convenience? Smart Shades transform a room’s lighting and ambiance at the touch of a button. Making it super easy to lower and raise at your leisure. Monitor and control lights from your smart device no matter where you are or create personalized lighting schedules that change with the seasons.

Choose from a wide array of control options such as wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes and timers, and apps that allow you to control from your Smart device. Whether you prefer blinds, shades, or drapes, all popular Budget Blinds window coverings can be automated.
