Three Handy Functions Of Smart Blinds

A lot of people have numerous smart devices throughout their homes. You might have a smart speaker, a smart thermostat, and even a smart doorbell. If you enjoy the conveniences of smart devices and you're thinking about changing the window treatments in one area of your home, you may wish to consider buying smart blinds. You can find these blinds at numerous window treatment stores, and they're available in many different styles to suit all sorts of different rooms. Here are three handy functions that you'll enjoy with smart blinds.

Programmed Open/Close

One feature that many people who have smart blinds enjoy is programming times throughout the day at which the blinds will open and close automatically. This can be desirable if you're a little fed up with opening and closing your blinds by hand. It can be fun to think about when you want the blinds to open each morning. For example, if your alarm goes off at 6 a.m., you might think of having the bedroom blinds open at approximately this time. If you frequently start watching TV around 8 p.m. each day, having the blinds in your TV room close automatically will give you privacy and prevent glare from outside.

Remote Usage

Smart blinds also allow you to open and close them through the associated app, even when you aren't at home. This can be handy at various times. For example, you might know that the blinds are open while you're away at work. If you suddenly realize that the weather is much hotter than you expected, you can quickly load the app and tap a few buttons to close the blinds. This will help to keep too much hot sunlight from flooding into your home, ensuring that the residence feels cool when you arrive after work.

Voice Control

If you have a smart speaker in your home, some types of smart blinds allow you to connect them with the speaker so that you can control them with your voice. If you don't have your cell phone handy, it can be very convenient to offer a verbal command — for example, you might say, "Close living room blinds." The fun of doing so may help to encourage your children to take part in opening and closing the blinds at certain times of the day, too.
