What can I say about electric window blinds? They are for lazy people. With the technological progress of our times, of course everything must become motorized, must work automatically, controlled through remotes, electric software, at distance.
Window shades which can be transformed into motorized window shades is a proof of the present tendency, that everything is converging to make man a even lazier creature. I mean, what can be so difficult about standing up and adjusting some slats of a vertical or Venetian blind?
However, there are some points of view that may counterattack what I said above.
Remote control blinds aren’t used necessarily only by people who think only of how to get more and more comfort in their life. Older folks, or those with a disability who find it hard to operate their blinds and shades manually can really benefit from them.
Here is a situation that proves the real need for electric blinds, and that they are not just a trifle. Another situation which will demonstrate the utility of automatically regulated blinds are big windows of the cathedrals where is difficult to reach. Without a remote control of some sort it would need a special person to fulfill the task regarding the opening or closing the shades at a specific time.
At the same time, the present market offers you a variation of blinds that can also work with an electric roller. Vertical sun visors can be used for wide windows. The stiffened fabric from which their slats are made from serves as a good protection against UV rays and at the same time keeps some noise out.
