Life moves at the speed of technology and both are always getting faster. Motorization is an easy way to keep up with these changes and make your home more accessible and convenient. The professionals at Window Fashions of Northern California are to help you add the most up-to-date and high-quality motorization to your window treatments for shades that operate on your schedule.

Light When You Want It

When was the last time you were trying to watch a movie and the glare from the setting sun was obscuring your view? You have to pause your movie, get up to cross the room, and adjust your shades or blinds. With automation, you can adjust the amount of light entering a room using your phone or a voice command. The same scenario can also be avoided when you’re all comfortable under the blankets in bed. Nobody wants to get up because the slats of your blinds are still open. Even if privacy isn’t your main concern, you don’t want to sacrifice sleep on the weekends because the sun rises earlier than you do.

Do you like to set it and forget it? Automation allows you to set specific scenes for each of your window treatments. You can even set your location to have your shades open at sunrise and close at sunset.

Increased Security

Do you travel often for business? Planning a family vacation? An empty home is more likely to be targeted by criminals than an occupied one. Enhance your home’s security by setting your automatic blinds to open and close at set times of the day. You can also use the PowerView App to operate your motorized shades anytime you choose from anywhere in the world. This will give the appearance of a lived-in home even when you’re miles away.

Less Energy Usage

Motorization allows you to set schedules for your window blinds and shades. Have your shades or blinds close at midday when the temperature is warm to help keep your home’s interior cool and comfortable. When the weather has turned cooler, set your automatic blinds to open in the afternoon to allow sunlight to provide natural warmth. There’s nothing like saving on utility costs without having to do anything except set a schedule for your window treatments.

Safety & Accessibility

Dangling cords from shades and blinds pose a safety hazard for young kids and pets. Cords can get wrapped or tangled around your child and are also a trip hazard. Electric blinds and shades are cordless by design which makes your home safer for the most vulnerable members of your family.

Do you struggle with hard-to-reach window coverings? Perhaps you have tall ceilings with high windows, or your windows are behind large pieces of furniture. Motorization can solve these problems for you in a snap. Never get stressed about adjusting the shades covering any skylights in your home again. Electric blinds are also an excellent solution if you have mobility restrictions. Easily operate any shades in your home from wherever you happen to be.

Control Options

Life is better with options, and motorized blinds are no exception. Download the PowerView® App to enjoy the ability to control your automatic blinds from your smartphone or tablet. Do you prefer a dedicated device? The PowerView® Pebble® remote is what you want. This modern take on chunky remotes of the past allows you to control up to six groups of window coverings and comes in a variety of chic colors to blend with any interior decor. Worried about losing your PowerView® Pebble® remote? We get it. We’ve all gone deep-diving into our couch cushions searching for a missing remote. Choose the wall mounted Pebble® Surface Remote and never worry about where your remote is.

PowerView® Automation is compatible with today’s most popular smart home systems. Use simple voice commands to operate your motorized shades with Alexa, Apple® HomeKit®, and Google Assistant. Getting home after dark? Walk in your day and use your voice to close your shades before turning on the lights to prevent unwanted looks into your home.
