Wifi Shades – the Benefits of This Smart Home Improvement Solution

Wi-Fi shades are one of those home improvement elements you think are a luxury that you don’t need until a friend of yours installs them and can’t shut up about their awesomeness. So you go ahead and install them just in your bedroom to see what’s all the fuss about only to realize that you’ve been foolish to have been missing out on their benefits for so long.

Next thing you know, you’re online, looking to buy wifi shades for your entire house so that once and for all you get the peace of mind you deserve and stop being the object of attention of your neighbor’s prying eyes. I know my wifi shades have made my life easier.

Comfort & Energy Savings

For starters, lowering the shades in summertime blocks the sun from overheating our home. While in wintertime, raising them helps me make use of natural solar heat. In both cases, they help reduce the energy load on the HVAC system and save me money on electricity bills. The best part about wifi shades is that you can close, open, or just raise them halfway with a simple click of a button. Plus, you can control them remotely, regardless of which room in your home you may be. Also, with the great inventions like Amazon Echo (Alexa), Google Home (Google) & Apple HomePod (Siri), commanding wifi blinds is easier than ever. The easy-to-use, intuitive interfaces of these devices can be accessed through your tablet or smartphone making home automation rather easy to implement.

UV Protection

UV rays can significantly damage your artwork and furniture, which is where blinds come in helpful. They can protect your expensive rugs and can even protect your wooden floors. To make the most out of your investment, set the shades on a timer or astronomical clock so that they lower during the sunniest part of the day to protect your furnishings from bleaching and fading.

Increase Security and Privacy

When you’re away on a holiday or just out and about all day, making your home look as if there’s someone inside is an effective way to fend off burglars. Raising and lowering your wifi shades at pre-set times will give your empty house a lived-in appearance. Plus, motorized shades do not have any cords, which makes them a perfect choice for households with young children. Also, when kicking back in the comfort of our home after a long day hustling, privacy matters a great deal. In these cases, the shades’ remote is my best ally – I really love the fact that I don’t have to get up from my comfy couch to adjust the level of darkness to my desire.
