1. Convenience

Lets say you have 5 windows in a room and you want to close or open these window treatments. You go to each one, one at a time to perform the open or close operation… no issue for “A” window treatment but lots, no way. Ever wonder why you pass a house with no one home and all the window treatments are open? Probably the homeowner did not want to take the time to close each window treatment. With motorized window treatments and our controls you can easily control any window treatment or group of window treatments at the push of a button, tick of a clock, change in sunlight, etc. Now that’s convenience!

2. Increase Privacy

Whether your home is open to the one next door or to the plain outdoors must of us do not feel comfortable at times without some level of privacy. The source of that privacy most often is the window(s). Easy to operate window treatments are a key to window privacy. Window treatments can provide privacy without motorization but not as easily. Consider you in your bathroom and you need to close the shade in your bathroom window on the other side of your tub so you can take a bath… you can step through the tub to reach the shade or push a button. Isn’t technology grand!
