Blind Automation

Even without fully installing smart home features into your living space, most households are already moving towards more convenient lifestyles. Food delivery apps, voice-activated texting, and even autonomous vacuum cleaners have taken our ease of living to the next level. A system as simple as lighting, then, is not beyond the innovation of smart home technology. If you plan on renovating your home, one of the best ways to update your life is through smart lighting and blind automation.

Say Goodbye to Cords and Switches

The benefit of a smart home system like Control4 is that you only have a single interface from which to control your home’s lighting and heating. This means that you can say goodbye to all those switches, remotes, and cords within your household. Another advantage of blind automation is that without any messy, tangled wires and cables, your home is far safer. Shades with long cords are dangerous in households with small children and animals, as they create a very real risk for entanglement and strangulation. Cords are also prone to wear and tear, and will need replacing after a few years.

Smart Shades Save Energy

The blinds within your home are essential to your HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system. Control4’s blind automation will allow you to select an energy efficiency mode wherein your blinds remain open during the coolest time of the morning to provide you with light and heat, and then close as the day warms up. This will also protect your furniture and floors from harsh UV rays when the sun is at its harshest. Smart lighting settings can be adjusted to only remain lit in occupied rooms, and to automatically switch off at a specific time of day.

Outdoor Lighting at the Touch of a Button

From perimeter lighting that flashes at the trigger of an alarm, to lit pathways that help you find your way at night, Control4 has a solution for you. Now, there is also no need to worry about forgetting to turn your lights on or off, as an automated system will work according to the times you set. In this way, you can save money on your electricity bill without even thinking about it.

Voice Control Activation

With a virtual assistant like Amazon’s Alexa, you can use voice commands if your hands are otherwise occupied. From anywhere in the world, you now have access to your home’s lighting and blind automation with a simple voice instruction.

A Safer Home

During holidays or business trips, you may be nervous about leaving your home unoccupied. With Control4’s smart features, you can travel and your neighbours would be none the wiser. While away, you can set lighting and blind automation on a regular routine or activate it at random in order to fool potential criminals into thinking someone is home.
