At Arte de Lusso, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best and most up-to-date products that create stylish ‘window wear’. One of the things we have noticed, particularly when installing blinds and curtains in the larger villas and mansions in Marbella and along the Costa del Sol, is that motorised systems have a significant impact on the owners’ daily lives, in that these systems simply make life much easier.
With a motorised system integrated into a smart home system, as all Arte de Lusso’s systems are, there is less physical effort required to manage the amount of light and shade in the home: you can control the entire home with one small handset. However, there are a number of other benefits in addition to convenience.
With a smart home system, you can operate your blinds from a distance. When the shades go up and down every day it creates the appearance of someone being at home.
Plus, as the smart system can also control lighting in the home, and operate a random pattern, rather than a predictable on-off schedule, it is even more realistic.
Motorisation saves energy
Motorised systems can actually save you energy, especially living on the Costa del Sol where the sun can be extremely powerful for months at a time. During the day, when sunlight pours through the windows, it has the potential to upset your air conditioning system and make it go into overdrive. That costs money. Covering the windows prevents this and with a motorised system it is so easy to adjust the amount of sun getting into the house or apartment. Indeed, you don’t have to do it yourself; you can have a sensor installed that tells the motorised to close when the sun is at its brightest.
The same strong sunshine that makes your AC unit run overtime can harm the upholstery on your furniture, causing it to fade over time. You can prevent this with a motorised blind system that acts on information from light sensors.
Motorisation is more elegant
It is true that operating blinds manually can be awkward and take several pulls on the cord to get them exactly in the right position. By contrast, motorised blinds glide effortlessly and quietly into the right spot.
At Arte de Lusso, we can offer you the best quality blind motorised systems integrated into the smart home. We work with the top brands, which are ELERO, MOTTURA, SOMFY and Q MOTION. Please call into the showroom, or contact us for a demonstration of our motorised systems and how they can improve your quality of life in Spain.
