The world is ever-evolving and tasks that might have existed ten years ago will seem almost non-existent in the next ten.
Think about the chores that you have now and ways that they could potentially be more efficient. You may still wash your dishes by hand, though dishwashers are far more efficient and save tons of money. You may still vacuum your home, though with the advent of robot vacuums, sucking up crumbs and dust is becoming a thing of the past.
However, if you are someone who loves the idea of creating a high-tech household, you should consider adding smart blinds to the equation.
Smart Discount Blinds are Now Available
When we say smart blinds to the average consumer, one of the first responses we get is,
“Those sound expensive”
They aren’t necessarily wrong in saying that, as modern, high-tech window treatments can be a bit expensive for the average consumer. However, there are now plenty of options available for those of you who are budget buyers.
Today, we’re going to take a look at a few apps that you can use to connect with your discount blinds so that you can control them hands-free!
Some of the Top Apps to Control your Blinds Up and Down
FlipFlic is a nifty little gadget that allows you to automate your blinds and control them with ease. It is made to integrate with your smart home system and supports vertical and horizontal blinds of all types. The beauty of FlipFlic is that it can be used on all types of blinds, even discount ones!
FlipFlic is solar powered as well. It uses sensors to provide users with automatic control, though a manual mode is available for those who want to take control.
FlipFlic integrates with Bluetooth, making it incredibly simple to use.
DaVi is very similar to FlipFlic in many ways, as you simply slide it into your existing discount blinds and control it with your smartphone. DaVi is incredibly easy to install and is solar-powered. You’ll never have to worry about charging a battery. It fits snugly with 2” horizontal blinds and works quietly to get the job done without you noticing that it’s working.
DaVi offers connectivity through Zigbee and Bluetooth and works with both Android and iOS devices. You don’t need to install any wires and you can make use to the light and temperature sensors to make automatic adjustments if you choose!
Jalousier clips onto your blinds and adjusts how they are set based on changing weather, temperature, time of day, and other conditions. You can also choose to remotely and manually set your blinds as well. There is a free iPhone and Android app to set auto-modes, manage settings, control your blinds with various gestures, and more.
With Jalousier, you can set a schedule for yourself based on your lifestyle. The app will even provide you with notifications based on upcoming weather conditions.
Acquiring Remote Controlled blinds doesn’t have to be expensive. By simply integrating one of these devices into your discount blinds or even better if blinds come included with the option to control from your phone like they do at Affordable Blinds, you can increase home efficiency and move one step closer to a fully integrated smart home!
