Nothing quite matches the feeling of opening the shades in the morning, looking out over the beautiful landscape Denver, CO, offers, and feeling the warmth of the sun. Many leave their shades open, enjoying the beauty natural light brings. This same sunlight can boost your mood, enhance your energy levels, and reduce your energy usage. Unfortunately, it can also damage the interior of your home.
When direct UV rays hit floors, furniture, fine artwork, and photographs, they can cause fading and permanent discoloration. To protect our homes, we tend to lower the shades when direct sunlight enters and often leave them closed for the rest of the day, missing out on the beautiful views and the healing effects of sunlight.
There is a better way. Smart shades do the work for you, automatically rising and lowering throughout the day based on the temperature and direct sun’s rays. Thanks to home automation, you can tap an icon on a touchscreen or a button on an elegant in-wall keypad and control one or every shade in your home.
But it gets better. Let’s explore what smart shades offer homeowners and why they’re one of the most popular trends in home automation.
