The Smart Home with Motorized Drape & Curtain Installation

With the smart home revolution coming to an end, motorized curtains are one of the devices that are falling behind. It’s common for us to automate everything now – lights, security cameras, thermostats, locks, and even curtains – but very few have considered automatic curtains. If you automate this area of your house, you can improve your home’s security while improving its energy efficiency.

What are motorized curtains?

A motorized drape or curtain, as the name suggests, is one that is opened or closed by a motor rather than by hand. The automatic curtains are usually powered by a battery or plug-in motor. Nobody except the homeowner will notice the motor is there since it is concealed behind the drapes or curtain rod.

The process is almost entirely automated, so there is no need for manual labor. Despite the fact that opening and closing curtains is not a particularly strenuous activity, having this automated feature is highly beneficial to elderly homeowners and those with physical disabilities. However, motorized curtains’ true value lies in integrating them with smart home systems like Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant.

Benefits of motorized drapes and curtains

Convenience

Automatic curtains provide convenience as their most obvious benefit. In lieu of having to manually adjust curtains, you can use an electric or battery-powered motor to make the process easier. Automating this process therefore improves ergonomics significantly.

In addition to a decreased physical workload, there is also an increase in functional convenience. If you are away from home, you can use an app to control your curtains.

Security

Closed blinds can be a great security feature, as they keep outsiders from seeing what’s going on inside your house. Remotely opening and closing blinds can enhance home security. During vacations, one of the most challenging aspects of home security is hiding the fact that your house is empty every day. During vacations, one of the most challenging aspects of home security is hiding the fact that your house is empty every day. You may become an easy target for burglars if you leave the exterior lights off in the evenings. When you’re out of town, you can still make your house appear occupied by setting a timer or adjusting the curtains remotely via an app.

Energy efficiency

Using a motorized curtain rather than a manual one is technically inefficient. However, it consumes less energy. When the sun shines, you can easily open or shut the curtains. The automatic curtains can be scheduled through mobile apps and/or timers. To provide natural heating, you can set your curtains to open during times of daylight exposure in cold weather. If it’s hot outside, you should close the curtains to prevent your house from becoming hotter.
