What To Look For in Smart Blinds

smart blinds

Smart blinds are the latest home automation craze. While some other intelligent systems might prove to be passing fads, smart blinds are here to stay. In fact, the vast majority of homes in developed countries will likely have smart blinds installed within the next couple decades. Let’s take a look at exactly what you should focus on when shopping for smart blinds.

Privacy and Protection

The best motorized blinds provide privacy from people outside the home yet also safeguard home occupants from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Ideally, the smart blinds you choose will empower you to control exactly how much light is allowed indoors. After all, the last thing you want is for sunlight to sneak inside when you are trying to sleep or enjoy a midday movie in a dark living room.

Quick and Easy Operation

The market’s top smart blinds can be operated with the press of a button and adjust to your desired setting in mere seconds. This way, you won’t have to stand up, walk over to the blinds and tug on a cord to move them up or down. If the smart blinds you are considering aren’t controlled in an intuitive manner, move on to the next candidate.

Consider the Type

Smart blinds are powered through a hardwiring into the home’s electrical framework or with the use of rechargeable batteries. Batteries are convenient and affordable yet you might grow tired of switching them in and out. Hardwired blinds are more convenient yet implementing such wiring into the existing electrical framework is a project in and of itself.

The Right Fit for Your Window

If the smart blinds you have in mind do not fit your window, it is time to consider other options. Be sure to measure your window to match up those measurements with the smart blinds and you will rest easy knowing the blinds fit just right.

Consider the Ease of Use

Blinds operated with smart technology are controlled with a smartphone app or a home hub system. Some blinds are functional with automated assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa. Certain smart

blinds are controlled by voice. Others are completely dependent on the use of a remote control. Make sure you are comfortable with the smart blinds’ functionality before moving forward.


Some homeowners favor customized smart blinds while others simply want regular smart blinds suitable for nearly every home. Examples of smart blinds customization include the ability to start/stop the blinds’ movement where desired, selecting specific blind positions and controlling upwards of two dozen or more blinds at once.
