Benefits of Motorization for Window Coverings

December 15, 2022

Any window treatment or shade is our specialty throughout Austin, TX and the surrounding areas.

Motorized window treatments are taking over the window covering industry. Why? They simply have too many advantages over traditional blinds not to. 

With the advent of motorized window blinds that integrate with smart home technology, people are coming to the conclusion that it’s time to switch from clunky traditional blinds to sleek, smooth, remote control options. 

If you’re unfamiliar with motorized blinds, we’ve got you covered. Here are five major reasons people are making the switch from traditional to motorized shades.  

Time Savings 

It makes sense that motorized blinds can save you time. That’s pretty straightforward. If you can easily control all your blinds remotely, you save yourself the hassle of going around to each one to open or close it. 

Believe it or not, though, having motorized blinds can also save you money by increasing your home's energy efficiency.

Money Savings

Many motorized blind systems are built with energy efficiency technology, like the ones offered by Austin’s Treaty Oak Shade Company. Their window coverings can open and shut automatically based on a sun sensor or the temperature of the room. 

So, during the summer months when the afternoon sun gets intense, you can program your blinds to close and keep your house cool. Likewise, if you live in a cooler climate during the winter, you can program your blinds to close and prevent heat loss.

Your energy consumption will go down, your home's efficiency will go up, and you'll save loads of money on your monthly utility bills. 

Preserve Your Furniture 

Timed, motorized window treatments can prevent fading and sun damage to your furniture.

By operating them with a smart device, you don’t have to constantly try to remember to close them. You don't even have to be at home to prevent your couch from sun exposure. Many smart thermostats have the capability to connect to a phone app making them remotely operable.

Increase the Value of Your Home 

In today’s world of home automation systems, installing motorized blinds can be an investment that adds value to your home, should you ever decide to sell. 

People value modern upgrades that make being at home easy. What a wonderful feature to show potential future homeowners so they can see just how comfortable and welcoming their future home could be. 

Having motorized blinds will help set you apart in today’s hyper-competitive housing market. 

Safer for Children and Pets 

Traditional blinds beg to be yanked on by children and pets. The excessively long strings and rods are far too tempting for toddlers to resist. Dogs and cats love them too! They often become a suffocation hazard though, so it's no wonder cordless blinds are a growing trend among parents.

Motorized blinds operate by remote, so there aren’t any pieces dangling around causing strangling hazards.  

Not to mention, kids and pets are a major reason people end up with broken, damaged, and non-functioning blinds. Strings become uneven or tangled, and rods come off easily. 

A broken blind means a trip to the hardware store for you, or maybe even calling a professional. In either case, it’s a colossal waste of time, energy, and money. Skip the repairs, and go for the motorized window coverings for safety and peace of mind. 


Another major plus with the innovation of motorized blinds is the convenience factor. With the touch of a button, you can operate blinds all over your house from the couch. You don't have to complete the repetitive task of opening all your blinds in the morning and closing them again at night. This is especially great considering how annoying it can be to open and shut the blinds in hard-to-reach areas.

  • No more manually adjusting each window’s height. No more uneven blinds next to each other. 
  • No more interruptions to tug at heavy blinds that won’t stay put. 
  • No more struggling to reach high-up windows when the afternoon sun gets too strong. 
  • You can adjust all your window blinds at the same time with the click of a button. 

An added bonus with motorized blinds is that you can often program them to open and close with the sunrise and sunset. This is an awesome feature if you like to wake with the morning light and have more privacy at night. The best part is, you don’t have to lift a finger. 

Motorized Shades for the Win  

If your home needs an upgrade, consider motorized window treatments. 

Motorized blinds have a lot going for them. They save homeowners endless amounts of time, energy, and money. They provide safety and peace of mind, and their smart home technology elevates your home to the next level. Best of all, they make your life easier and more enjoyable. 

Traditional blinds have served their purpose, but they just aren’t the best option anymore. For so many reasons, it’s motorized blinds for the win.
