Spring forward, spring cleaning, spring-around-the-rosy; for some reason the world seems to expect a lot out of people come spring, even though most of us are still recovering from the long, cold winter.
There’s one new thing everybody should put on their spring to-do lists, though: Spring shading.
Smart shades are one of the most exciting new areas of smart home technology, and can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your home. And isn’t that what spring cleaning is all about, anyways?
And ... Scene
Life isn’t so much one big moment as it is a tapestry of little moments, strung together by our human memories. And if we can improve upon all of those little moments, we can make life just that much better.
Enter smart shading.
With smart shading solutions from Savant (say that ten times fast!) you can easily set your home’s shading for the seasons or the weather. Your shades can be scheduled to move with the time of day or the position of the sun. It’s pitch-perfect control over life’s little moments, but on a grand scale.
After a long day of cleaning, working, chasing the kids around, and all of the other “super fun” things that make up being an adult that our parents never warned us about, adding another task to the chore list can sound like, well, a chore.
Take this, for example: You sit down after a long, hard day and sit down to watch the TV. The setting sun is behind you, and the glare from it is coming through the WINDOWS AND RUINING YOUR TV OH MY WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?
Get up and close the shades yourself? Psh. That’s like making your own caviar – sure, you could do it, but why would you? Instead, grab your Lutron remote and use it to adjust the shades, all without getting up off your seat. Now that’s the power -- and luxury -- of smart home automation.
With all the tossing out and cleaning that comes with spring, that also means there’s a lot of room for new housing upgrades, as well. If you’ve been a follower of our blog for some time, you probably have a lot of the smart home basics already equipped, which means you might be looking for something to really up your game come spring time.
Smart shades are a great way to do that. For example, if you go with Crestron smart shades and their exclusive Quiet Motor Technology, you can have shades move at your whim with silent operation. They also have a longer life than other motors, which means that you won’t have to worry about anything happening to these shades for seasons and seasons to come.
