Early summer is a great time to make necessary upgrades to your home. In 2021, the biggest upgrade to your home is to make it “smart”, with technology that takes your commands.
While certain home tasks used to be a chore, app developers have created ways for homeowners to control their homes with their mobile devices.
In Florida and other coastal areas, the storm season kicks off just before June, creating a perfect window in the spring for homeowners to plan installs or updates to their home’s outdoor protections. Roll down hurricane shutters are essential for homeowners to protect and secure their property and modern technology has helped automate that in-season task.
Previously, protecting your homes windows from storms or excessive sunshine meant doing it yourself. Now, Sash and Sill is introducing installation services for automated roll down shutters that can be controlled by your mobile device. Just like your mobile assistant or a push of a button on the designated app can deploy roll down shutters — either for storm protection, sunshade or security purposes.
Here are three benefits to upgrading to smart shades:
Convenience: No more manually reaching for interior or exterior shutters or shades. With use of the app on your mobile device, your shutters will be automatically rolled up or down, depending on what you want them to do. You may not even need to be in your home to control your shutters.
Security: Exterior roll down shutters can also be used to protect your home and windows for security purposes. With the touch of a button, your home can be closed and secured. In the event of an emergency, the app can be used to let firefighters or emergency responders have access to windows.
Value: Technological upgrades are a great way to add value to your home. The latest smart technology, including app-control window shutters, are excellent selling points in today’s housing market. Also, the sooner you upgrade your home to smart technology, the easier it will become to upgrade and adapt as technology improves.
