Explore the Remarkable Benefits of Motorized Window Treatments

Let Your Smart Home Manage Daylight & Privacy

Imagine sunlight streaming into your home, waking you with a gentle nudge when morning arrives. When you head to the kitchen, the opening shades reveal your beautiful backyard in Virginia Beach, VA. This scenario is made possible by motorized window treatments scheduled to open at a specific time. 

While a remarkable way to start the day, these window coverings offer much more. No more manually adjusting shades when the sun's glare makes it hard to see or your wood floors feel the effects of UV rays. No more closing every shade for privacy when darkness falls. Now, your smart home does it for you. 

A common question our clients ask after we install smart window treatments is, "Why didn't we do this sooner?" Let's explore some of the other questions commonly asked and what these window coverings offer your home in Coastal Virginia.

How Do Motorized Shades Work?

Motorized shades effortlessly manage natural light and privacy. You can open or close one or every shade by tapping a remote or touchscreen or via voice command. You can also manage your window coverings remotely through your smartphone app. Did you rush out of the house and forget to lower the shades? Pull up the app, and it's done.

At Domes Audio Video, we believe your home should be a retreat that comforts, entertains, and relaxes at day's end. To that end, we program your window coverings to transform based on the time of day, your location, the sun's position, or the activity. 

While this programming is customized for every client, some popular options include:

  • Opening at sunrise and closing at dusk
  • Raising the south-facing shades in the winter for heat and lowering them in the summer for cooler temperatures
  • Opening the west-facing shades at sunset
  • Lowering all the shades when you leave your home

And that's just scratching the surface of their capabilities. When integrated with a home automation system, we can program buttons for daily activities, such as 'Breakfast,' 'Entertaining,' 'Relaxing,' and 'Working.' Press one on a keypad, and your home responds with the ideal lighting, climate, music, and level of natural light.
