If you’re interested in giving your whole Oklahoma City, OK living space a transformative boost, then motorized window treatments are for you and your family.

In this blog, we’ll dive into what motorized shades can bring to your daily lifestyle, and how their features can benefit you and your family. Want to learn more? Keep reading on below.
Ultimate Convenience for Everyday Comfort
Standard, manual window treatments can be quite a hassle to manage throughout the day – especially if you have large bay windows. While these types of windows are beautiful, they can be extremely hard to reach. Even having to remember to adjust and lower your shades at different times of the day can be difficult.
That’s why motorized shades are such a game-changer. Shades from Crestron and Screen Innovations come in all different styles and varieties, and they add a new level of convenience to your everyday routine and tasks. Now with just a press of a button, you can operate your motorized window treatments with zero complications involved.
With a smart device of your choice, such as your smartphone, a tablet, or a wall keypad, you can raise or lower your shades in mere seconds. You’ll never have to stretch for out-of-reach cords again.
And if you struggle to remember to lower your shades at night and adjust them for the next day, you can schedule your shades’ movement throughout the day to either coordinate with certain times or to follow the pattern of the sun. Installed photosensors can signal your shades to lower when the sun rays are getting too intense and bright and lets them raise back up again when the rays are not so harsh.
Motorized shades give your complete control over this solution’s many features – while also allowing you to automate them to your unique preferences.
Protect Your Interiors
Basking in the glow of natural sunlight can add the perfect ambiance to an evening spent indoors. But when those sun rays get too intense, it can have a dire impact on your interiors.
Your antique furniture, delicate artwork, and other fragile items throughout your whole home need protection from the harsh sunlight. This is where motorized shades can be tremendously beneficial.
The installed photo sensors we mentioned above can come in handy for this feature as well. When the sun is entirely too bright and peeking in through your windows, your sensors can alert your shades to lower automatically – without you ever needing to press a button. Then, they can raise up again when the sun hides behind clouds or is less concentrated.
This feature protects your valuables and also helps to prevent solar heat gain. You’ll find yourself free from worrying about adjusting your automated shades in order to keep your interiors in good condition and care throughout the day. Now you can enjoy the sunlight at optimal times throughout the day, and still manage to shield your valuables.
Improve Your Energy Efficiency
Shade can complete the look of a room. For example, Screen Innovations’ shades offer a sleek design that could blend in or even enhance your personal interior design. But did you know that along with that added elegance, motorized shades can also provide incredible energy-saving benefits? Every shade installation provides insulation for your home no matter what the season is.
When your shades are installed by our team of experts at Audio Dimensions, there is a space between the shading material and the window itself, called the “air gap.” This small gap creates insulation, trapping the heat or cool air inside and preventing it from escaping as most air does through your windows.
Honeycomb shades are an even better option for insulation. These shades are designed specifically for this advantage. They are made up of “pockets” that are like extra air gaps, keeping your desired air from escaping out your windows.
By insulating your home, shades prevent your HVAC system from overworking and driving up your energy usage and monthly bills. Your shades can communicate with your smart thermostat to maintain your home’s internal temperature and always deliver a comfortable atmosphere for everyone to enjoy at all times.
