Curtains and blinds control natural daylight and offer privacy. Electric blinds and curtain tracks make it easier to control window treatments and offer significant energy saving, comfort and security benefits.
Natural daylight is a fabulous light source. It’s great for our health and well-being, renders colours and textures perfectly and it’s free. Electric blinds allow you to harvest natural light, letting light in where and when you want it while giving you the ability to control glare and temperature. Electric blinds tied to a lighting control system can adjust to suit time of day, aspect and light levels.
Getting the maximum benefit from natural daylight reduces artifical light usage and harvesting the warmth from sunlight is a smart way of lowering heating use.
Integrate curtains & blinds for improved security
Lighting control systems like Lutron HomeWorks QS feature the ability to make your house look lived in where you’re not there. Realistic patterns of lighting played back when the house is unoccupied is a significant security benefit. Incorporating blinds and curtains takes that security up a level while making the playback more authentic.
