Your tenants will be able to easily adjust their window treatments from the comfort of their couch—there’s no need to get up and wrestle with the cord! With just the tap of a button on a stylish Savant remote or Savant Pro mobile app, every shade can be opened, closed, or precisely adjusted. This is especially ideal for awkwardly placed windows that are difficult to reach. Shades can even be automated to adjust on a preset schedule or with the sunrise and sunset, allowing hands-free control of natural lighting.
Motorized shades also add an extra layer of privacy to your tenants’ lifestyles. Whether they’re at home or away, an effortless touch of a button can close all the shades in their condo at once, preventing peering eyes and potential invasions of privacy. Bedrooms tend to have large windows to let in natural light, but on the other hand, bedrooms are supposed to be personal spaces. Tenants can quickly secure their space with the simple tap of a button or even schedule their blinds or shades to close automatically when the sun goes down.
Automated window treatments can also help lower your tenants’ energy costs when operating on a schedule or when paired with temperature sensors. For example, during the winter, your tenants’ shades can open automatically during peak sunlight hours to let sunlight warm their condo naturally, reducing the work that their climate control system has to do to warm their home. The opposite is also true in the summer. During the hottest parts of the day, the shades will close, reducing solar heat gain and keeping indoor temperatures cool. From art to flooring, UV light can damage home furnishings when coming through a window. In addition to energy savings, UV protection is a secondary benefit of motorized shades.
