What about proving security when you are not at home?

Electric blinds can enhance a home’s security in more ways than one! From stopping passers-by from looking into your home to making it look like someone is home when you aren’t. The automatic control that electric blinds offer, enables Luxaflex® blinds to move throughout the day and night. This gives the impression that someone is at home even when you’re not. Electric blinds can be a deterrent especially when combined with an automatic smart home lighting system

Can electric blinds help improve my sleep quality?

There is nothing worse than a poor night’s sleep caused by too much light and not enough dark, and then before you know it - the alarm goes off!

Blackout electric blinds with special room darkening fabrics can really help - as they make the bedroom much darker and this promotes better sleep.

Another great feature is to pre-set a time to automatically open your blinds when you need to get up for work. Wouldn’t you like to enjoy a gentle wake-up call rather than the sharp sound of an alarm clock? Everyone in the house can benefit from electric blinds to control the light – especially children who can wake up with summer light or get up too early at the weekend when you want the whole family to sleep in.
