What is the Potential of Automated Blinds and Shades?

Smart and motorized blinds and shades can help control solar gain and heat loss experienced in homes throughout the day by just opening and closing them at pre-programmed hours. With the addition of smart sensors, blinds and shades can effectively learn when to open and close, depending on temperature and sunlight, and maximize the HVAC system's energy efficiency.

Automated blinds and shades are used in homes, offices, retail spaces, or defined work spaces having huge windows and doors. The inconvenience of having to manually raise and lower blinds and shades all day represents a challenging situation for users.
