Window Treatment Automation vs. Motorization

July 7, 2021by Yeshourun0

Automated and motorized are often used interchangeably when referring to window treatments, however, these two terms differ slightly since they each have their own unique functionalities. When buying window treatments, it’s important to understand the difference between the two so that you purchase the right window treatments.


Are you debating between purchasing motorized or automatic curtains NYC? Reading the information below will help you understand the differences between the two to make your decision easier. 


Motorized Window Treatments

Just like the name suggests, motorized window treatments operate using a motor. The motor can be battery-powered, rechargeable, or hardwired. The window treatments can be controlled by using a remote control or a wall-mounted control panel.


Automated Window Treatments

While you have to press a button to control your motorized shades, automated window treatments are programmed to automatically function at set times throughout the day. Automatic curtains NYC and other automatic window treatments also have motors, but are connected to a smart hub. This smart hub is connected to your home’s wi-fi which allows you to control your window treatments through an app on your smartphone or by using voice assistants like Google Home or Alexa.


Automated window treatments are extremely beneficial and have many uses. They can be set to close in the heat of the day and open when the sun isn’t directly shining into your home to control glare and protect your furnishings from UV rays! And if you’re someone who frequently travels, you can take advantage of your window treatments by programming them to lower and raise at certain times of the day to make it look like someone is home. The possibilities are endless! 


Which Treatment Is Right for Me? 

The decision is entirely up to you, of course. If you simply want to be able to adjust that hard-to-reach window that is behind a large piece of furniture with a single touch of a button, then motorized treatments are the obvious choice. However, if you have a smart home or want to get one, automatic curtains NYC (or any other automatic window treatment) are the right choice for you! Automated window treatments will give you more ability with less effort. For instance, if you’re someone who constantly forgets to open and close your window treatments or goes out of town a lot, automated window treatments are a great option for you.
