How to Get the Most Out of the Motorized Shades in Your Home

You may have heard that motorized shades are all the rage today. You also may have heard that installing motorized shades on your own is the way to go. Although some may claim that this is a DIY project, hiring a professional is definitely the way to go.

Motorized shades have multiple benefits, from improving your home security to actually helping save you money by conserving energy. But to really get all the benefits, you need to ensure you have the right shading solution in place.

Our clients in Elmhurst, IL know that having a professional properly install their motorized shades is key to having the best experience with them. At Acoustical Vision, we’ll help you every step of the way from choosing the ideal models for your space to optimizing them with custom control solutions.

1. Choosing the Right Window Treatments

Though smart technology is our trade, we have been working with window treatments for years and can advise you on the best solution for your space. As experienced shading installers, we will be able to guide you on which models, fabrics, and colors to use.

Each of our projects begins with a one-on-one consultation where we’ll be able to gauge your needs and advise you on the best solutions. Though interior design considerations shouldn’t be ignored, you also want to ensure you have the best shade for the job at hand.

In a home theater environment, you’ll likely want blackout roller shades that keep out ambient light when you’re ready to sit back and watch a movie. Does your living room have a beautiful lakefront view? Choose darker roller shades that absorb instead of diffuse light so you can protect your home from UV rays while still being able to look out at your priceless view.

These are just some examples. We’ll work with you to choose color and openness factors for roller shades and help you figure out when blinds, drapes, or sheer shades may be a better option.

2. Customizing Your Control Options

The primary reason to add motorized shades is due to the streamlined control options they offer. You’ll be able to manage shades from elegant on-wall keypads, handheld remotes, elegant touchpads, and even mobile apps.

With motorized shades, you can even make your own presets for what you want your motorized shades to do at different parts of the day. For example, a “Morning” scene will automatically lift shades to stir you out of your sleep and gently welcome you into a new day.

When it comes to making your own presets or choosing the ideal control options, a professional will guide you on the best choices. We’ll also integrate the shades into the rest of your smart home system to have them work alongside AV, lighting, security, and more.
