Can Existing Window Blinds Be Motorized?
While you can retrofit your stationary blinds with smart technologies, most motorized window blinds are engineered to replace the existing window treatments in your home. The latter is an easier and more cost-effective solution that allows you to benefit from the advantages of installing new, smart window treatments without the hassle of individually motorizing each accessory. In addition to optimizing the functionality of your windows, motorized blinds can also help you create a safer home by eliminating the need for hanging cords that could pose a threat to small pets and children.
Replacing Window Treatments with Motorized Blinds
Motorized window blinds come in a variety of operating systems, so finding an option that works for your needs and budget is relatively simple. You can choose systems that are controlled by a smart device, which can be preprogrammed to automatically operate your window accessories on a schedule. Or, you can choose remote-motorized systems, which operate via a motor and sensor that are controlled by the effortless push of a button.
