Security benefits of motorized window coverings at your home
Ease and comfort are not the only reasons to install motorized window coverings. They also improve home security. Made in the Shade discusses the security benefits of motorized window coverings at your Prescott home.
Yes, motorized window coverings are important for your comfort and for the fact that you can be lying on the living room sofa while remotely adjusting the blinds throughout the house. They also help with your home’s energy efficiency. But did you know that motorized blinds and shutters improve home security?
You see, burglars are known to survey potential houses prior to attempting to break in. These malicious people are looking for signs that you’re not at home. Their best-case scenario would be that you are on a lengthy vacation. One signal they will pick up on is your blinds remaining closed 24 hours a day. While you would prefer this over leaving your blinds open, this could backfire and advertise your absence.
The good news is, motorized blinds and shutters provide a far better option. In fact, motorized window coverings are a low-key security solution! Window coverings can be programmed to open and close at random intervals throughout the day. This way, it appears to the would-be thief as though someone is home. This can be combined with inexpensive light timers, so that any burglar scouting out your home will instantly eliminate it as a prospect.
