Make the Most of the Seasons with Motorized Outdoor Shades

If you’ve spent any amount of time on these pages, you might have noticed how much we love motorized shades. Like power windows in cars, once you have them, you can’t imagine not having them. Besides the convenience, they have undeniable benefits in energy efficiency, privacy, and comfort.

Did you know that motorized shades are available for outdoor spaces, too? We hear you answering no and why, and we’re glad to tell you why they make a lot of sense for your Cumming, GA patio. Read on for four ways motorized outdoor shades make the most of your outdoor space.

Control Pesky Pests

Summer in the South means insects. Your mileage may vary, but there will always be some. If insects sometimes keep you from enjoying your patio, you can create an indoor/outdoor room with motorized shades. The shades can limit the number of bugs and let you enjoy that dinner, a show on your outdoor TV, or a nightcap without resorting to slatherings of insect repellent.

Tame the Wind

As nice as the wind feels, especially on hotter days, sometimes it’s too much of a good thing. If the wind is blowing away lunch, control it by dropping your patio motorized shades with a touch of a button. Some shades can tame wind up to 40 miles per hour, making that outdoor picnic a reality.

Beat the Sun

Sun exposure can make a part of your patio uncomfortable, depending on where you're sitting. Ensure everyone's comfort by lowering your outdoor shades to filter the sun. With various options for materials that filter light – just like indoor shades – you can select the perfect solution for your patio. For the ultimate in comfort, pair your shades with a light or heat sensor and the control of a home automation system, and your shades can adjust automatically. You can just continue with your outside enjoyment.

Enjoy the Rain

Sometimes those intense summer storms manage to get your patio wet with the wind. With wind-resistant shades, you can keep your patio dry so you can sit and enjoy the thunderstorms. Relive your childhood fascination with rainstorms; only now you can enjoy the magical weather show with an adult beverage.
