The way we consume entertainment has changed dramatically in the last twenty years. In the past, for a high-quality experience you might go to the cinema to watch a movie or buy or rent DVDs that made home entertainment more convenient. In the last few years, streaming content has become the dominant form or entertainment consumption and thanks to high-speed internet connections. With this increasing demand for internet connectivity for all our devices at home, fast and robust Wi-Fi is an essential part of any modern homes.

While we are a long way from the slow connections of only 15 years ago, you still need a system that can keep up with today’s demands. Today, your spouse wants to watch Netflix in the media room while your kids play online games on the Xbox, and you listen to Apple Music on the outdoor sound system. You need a Wi-Fi installation that can keep up. 


Streaming services, such as Amazon and Netflix, online gaming, and meeting platforms like Zoom and Google Meet, require a minimum bandwidth (expressed in megabits per second) to deliver high-quality content. On average, they need 10 to 20 Mbps. Although this may seem like very little bandwidth usage, when you multiple this across various simultaneously connected devices, it becomes significant. The average home has over 30 devices connected, and the Wi-Fi router capacity and throughput can be an important factor in device performance.

Add Value to Your Next Project with Automated Roller Shades

Motorized Window Shades Give Homeowners Seamless Control And Blend In Beautifully With Luxury Homes

Shades are an essential part of any home. As a home builder, architect, or interior designer, you understand that. Without them, rooms would look bare, and the life of homeowners would be moving pictures for all the neighbors to see! While conventional window shades create ambiance and privacy, they don’t add convenience or opulence. Instead, why not use automated roller shades that respond when you touch a tablet, remote, or smartphone app? Since modern homes require updated technologies, motorized window treatments are the perfect solution for delivering value to clients. They offer more privacy, convenience, and comfort. If you're working on a home project in Anaheim Hills or Orange County, CA, read on to learn why you should make room for automated roller shades in your design plan.

Safety for Children and Pets

If your client wants a safe home for pets and children, automated shades are the perfect option. Traditional shades and blinds often use cords, which pose choking hazards for children and animals. However, automated shades have a cordless design that eliminates this problem. In addition, cords and rods - even though you may have grown accustomed to them - are unsightly. However, motorized shades are sleek, stylish, and free of strings.

One-Touch Automation

As the name suggests, motorized window treatments are electronically and remotely controlled. No need to get up to twist rods or pull strings. Instead, there are multiple control options, depending on the manufacturer. Raise and lower the shades using a remote, smartphone app, or smart home tablet. If you want to go completely touch-free, automated shades can be programmed to operate based on the time of day or even via light sensors.

Light Filtration and Blackout

How about two shades in one? Premium brands often integrate two fabric types into one shading solution for added functionality and convenience. During the day, lighter fabrics filter the light to block the harsh UV rays, yet the home still takes advantage of natural light. But when the occasion arises (e.g., movie night, nap time, or extra privacy), the darker fabric provides a complete blackout effect. The dual functionality of the fabrics also serves to improve the home's energy efficiency. The natural sunlight entering the home offers daylight savings. You don't need to use the home's lighting system when the sun is up. Also, when automated shades raise and lower based on light or heat sensors, they help regulate indoor temperature, so the HVAC system uses less energy to cool or heat a space.

How Motorized Shades Add Convenience And Style To Your Home

How Motorized Shades Add Convenience And Style To Your Home

Upgrade Your Drapes With A More Innovative Option

Window shades have a practical and aesthetic appeal as they can be used as a solution to keep dust and excessive light out of your house while ensuring your privacy. Manually operated curtains or blinds may appear to be the conventional option, but there are other choices available to allow us to get more utility from our window shades. Motorized shades operate similarly to curtains while also providing added convenience, making them an indispensable fixture in your Laguna Beach, CA home. If you want to have a unique decor when it comes to your window coverings, you can consider installing motorized shades that have both an aesthetic and functional allure for the modern abode. If you're still on the fence about opting for automated shades, read on to find about their advantages, especially when it comes to user convenience and design appeal.


The Perks Of Remote Control

Despite the beauty and charm of classic curtains, it is highly inconvenient that they must be controlled manually, which can become irritating if you're already seated on your sofa across the room or snuggled up in bed.  Motorized shades might be the solution you're looking for if you find it tedious to draw and open curtains during different times of the day. The automatic shades combine sophisticated technology with the elegance of curtains to create a convenient system that can be operated by using a smartphone or touchscreen device and can even link with your home automation system.  This innovative method allows you to open and close your shades electronically at any time of the day since the shades are equipped with a wireless receiver and are powered by long-lasting batteries that do not need to be charged or with an AC power source to guarantee you get the most light in your house while maintaining your privacy. The motorized shades may also be linked to your alarm clock or a timer to open and close according to your schedule, allowing you to keep a routine while still saving electricity.

An Elegant Solution

Motorized shades can be just as stylish as traditional curtains as they are available in a variety of styles, materials, and colors to mix in with your existing décor while still being highly useful and effective at protecting your privacy and controlling the amount of light that enters through your windows. Before you install these shades, you have the option of choosing colors, fabrics, and designs that aligns with your room's color scheme. At Launch Systems, we have extensive experience working with motorized window treatments, which we can set up in your Laguna Beach, CA home. Feel free to call us today at (949) 515-7030, fill out our online contact form, or chat with us using the “Let's Talk” button at the bottom of your screen if you have any further questions.
