All of Budget Blinds motorized window treatments feature Somfy motorization. According to our friends at Somfy, the leading reason homeowners choose to upgrade their window coverings with motorization is because the windows are hard to reach. However, motorization has other benefits that you may wish to consider, particularly programmable motorization. With programmable motorization, you can set your window treatments to open and close a prescribed times throughout the day.
If waking up is hard to do, programmable motorization may help you start a little easier by waking you with sunlight instead of a jarring alarm. Set your motorized window treatments about 15-30 minutes before your alarm rings, and you’ll wake up more naturally. (Use your alarm clock as back up.)
During the day, programmable motorization can help you cut solar heat gain in your rooms, which in turn, will help reduce your home energy costs. As an added bonus, programmable motorization will make your home appear occupied even when no one is home. This will make would-be burglars think twice before choosing to break into your home.
Lastly, when it’s time to prepare your home for the evening, motorized window treatments can save time by closing all the window treatments with the touch of a button.
