3 Reasons You Should Install Motorized Shades in Your Next Project
Simplify automation in your next new home build
As a builder in Houston, TX, you’ve probably noticed an increased demand for technology in your new home build projects. From lighting to home theaters, homeowners are looking for modern convenience as soon as they move into their new property. It may even throw you for a loop – but not to worry. One of the simplest ways you can improve your next project with technology is by installing motorized shades. Here are three reasons why you should consider this smart and straightforward upgrade.
Did you know that 65 percent of homebuyers are willing to spend more on smart home packages? That means the potential value of your new home build will increase with the more integrated systems you add. While they’re not complex systems, smart shades are a perfect starting point for many new homeowners, who enjoy their convenience and practicality.
By working with an integrator from the beginning, it's easy to plan, design, and deploy a smart shading system that will benefit the entire property. Wiring and installation are simple when they're done before the drywall goes up, so you won't have to deal with added project time or re-work.
All the demand for smart technology isn't as simple as it appears. Many homeowners want to benefit from it and are willing to pay more for it. But they also don't want systems that will jeopardize their privacy or go out of date within a year. They're looking for evergreen technology – not smart hubs and TVs that they'll have to replace quickly.
Motorized shades are relatively simple. While manufacturers occasionally upgrade the systems with quieter motors or more custom roller options, it’s a technology that doesn’t develop at the same pace as some other more visible components. In other words, adding Lutron shades (or other top-of-the-line components) will increase value without the risk of going out of style.
They Help Security
One of the most sought-after technologies for new home buyers (aside from voice control) is security. But security is not just about smart cameras, locks, and alarms.
Motorized shades can increase privacy and security automatically. With the touch of a button, homeowners can quickly close the shades in one room, multiple rooms, or throughout the whole house. And more than just privacy, shading helps minimizes the potential damage of harmful UV rays and reduces their dependence on artificial lighting. And that could potentially yield meaningful energy savings down the line.
