Update to a Smart Home Automation

From everything from our phones to our computers to our televisions, technology has advanced a great deal in the past decade. And that is true for the technology that can power our homes as well. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, we’ve compiled a few of the most popular smart home devices so you can start thinking about what might be good for your situation. Check them out below!  

Consider Smart Appliances

You might be surprised by the number of different connected appliances there are, including refrigerators, ovens, washers, and dryers. Smart appliances can simplify tasks to make life more convenient. For example, you can preheat the oven or adjust its temperature while you’re still at work, so that it’s ready to cook your favorite dish the minute you walk in the door. 

Have You Tried a Robot Vacuum Cleaner?

Many people loathe vacuuming their homes, but that doesn’t mean the task can be ignored. That’s where a robot vacuum cleaner comes in—it’s ready to do the work for you! Many robot vacuums have built-in sensors that let them “map” the room so they can be sure to get all that dirt, pet hair, and debris. Some offer the ability to schedule when the vacuum runs, so you can ask it to run after you’re out and about and come home to a clean floor. Plus, you might find one that will empty itself, so you don’t even have to lift a finger.

Pet Cameras While You’re Away

If you worry about leaving your furry friend alone when you leave the house, think about adding a pet camera that will let you watch out for your pet while you’re out. One of the fancier versions have microphones or treat dispensers, so you can interact with your pet while you’re away.

PowerView® Automation for Your Blinds or Shades

Hunter Douglas has made it possible to use automation on your window fashions as well. PowerView Motorization allows you to operate and program your shades to open and close when you want—even when you’re out of town. Use the PowerView app on your smartphone or tablet, or use the PowerView® Pebble®, a modern take on the remote control that has incredible range. Plus, if you add a third-party provider and equipment such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and more, you can connect to your PowerView system and control your shades just with your voice. No longer for just convenience, PowerView opens a whole new world of functionality, privacy, and safety for your home.
