Smart Window Coverings Bring Privacy, Security, and Energy Efficiency
The window coverings in our homes perform many tasks. When open, they let in the sun’s light, bringing beauty, warmth, and daylight’s healing effects. When lowered, they protect our home’s interiors from damaging UV rays, provide privacy and security, and block the sun’s direct glare while keeping our spaces cool.
However, according to a U.S. Department of Energy study, 75% of homes’ window coverings remain in the same position throughout the day, missing out on all the benefits lighting and shade bring as the sun arches across the sky.
There is a better way. Motorized blinds bring effortless control of daylight and privacy. With one tap on a designated touchscreen, in-wall keypad, or remote, you can raise or lower one or every shade in your home. Better yet, let your smart home in Summerlin, NV, do it for you. Let’s explore the many benefits these smart shades offer.

While motorized shades offer effortless one-touch control, our certified technicians at DMC Systems LLC also use sensors and daily schedules to create a home with the perfect amount of daylight at any time. For instance, when the sun begins to heat the interior of your home, your southern-facing shades automatically lower, reducing solar heat gain and the strain on your HVAC system, lowering energy costs in the process.
Daylighting—the practice of letting natural light into a home—adds beauty while reducing the use of electric light. Your smart home maintains the perfect balance, raising shades to allow the diffuse light of the sun in and lowering shades when direct sunlight increases heat and causes damage. At the same time, your lighting adjusts to provide the perfect illumination at all times.
We can also program your shades to move based on the time of day. Some clients enjoy waking to sunlight streaming in their windows as their shades slowly rise to greet the dawn. We can also program west-facing shades to open as the sun crosses the horizon for those who never want to miss another beautiful Nevada sunset.
When it’s dinner time, the motorized blinds automatically close for privacy. When entertaining friends and family, they open to reveal your beautiful outdoor spaces and embrace a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living.
Safety & Security
Programmed buttons can adjust your shades and other smart systems based on the activity. For instance, when it’s time for bed, tap the ‘Good Night’ button, and every shade lowers in your home while the lights turn off, the doors lock, the alarm arms, and the thermostat adjusts. Press the ‘Away’ button when leaving for the weekend, and your shades will randomly open and close while the lights automatically turn off and on. This activity creates the impression that your home is occupied, enhancing safety and security.
