Having motorized exterior window shades may be as new to people as a computer or the internet. A lot of people know about motorized shades and a lot of people already have it, but a lot of people haven’t heard of it, haven’t used it and some are even afraid to try it because it is something new and something that is not very traditional, in the sense that it has a hands-free mechanism by which to control the shades with. However, in order to get the facts straight and in order to get things right, you eventually have to try and test motorized shades.
Roman shades are made in such a way that people would use a cord to lift and lower the shade into place, depending on the level you want it to be at. This is something that is also true of other interior decors such as shutters. However, having motorizes shades makes things simpler and more convenient for you, because you may actually control the movement of the shade, without having to be bothered to go near the shade and use the cord to tug it up or down.
With the help of a remote-controlled device, or some other hands-free mechanism to control the shade, you may test the functionality of the shades and push it to the limit, even. You may test to see how fast the rollers would put the shade up or roll it down, and see to what extend the shade would be lowered. This information that you would get through testing would allow you to use the shade within the limitations that is has and thus prevents the shade from being overly used or extended beyond its functional capabilities. It also would help in your decision-making process, and selecting which motorized shade to take home with you and which to not buy.
Motorized shades have to be tried out and tested first before taking it home. There’s nothing worse than bringing home a motorized gadget without knowing how to use it and ruining it even before you have completed one day from the moment you have bought it.
