Why Integrate and Automate Shades?
audioDave’s customizable automated solutions promote efficiency and energy savings throughout the home or workplace – and automated shades or blinds are an excellent way to add value and comfort to any space. Operating wirelessly, smart shades respond to a simple app you download to your smart phone or tablet. Whether you’re at home or miles away, you’ll be able to monitor and adjust your smart shades with the click of a button.
Imagine: Your blinds automatically rise in the morning when it’s time to wake up, then close on their own in the evening. audioDave’s technology makes it easy to schedule automation by daily or weekly routines that incorporate smart blinds alongside lighting, heating and cooling, and other technologies. You’ll never have to fumble to manually lower or raise shades, and you won’t have to adjust each one individually for a neat, uniform look.
What does aD Do?
After installing a customized network in your home or workspace, audioDave replaces all manual shades with motorized versions – tailored, of course, to your specifications and aesthetic preferences. From there, it’s simply a matter of connecting the shades to the network, then assigning you the controls – typically a simple app downloaded to your smart phone or tablet.
In a smart home, it’s easy to tell your shades what to do – literally! Synchronize your smart shades with voice control software, like Alexa, for total command. Adjust shades by room, or raise and lower every blind in the home – all with just a click to your smart phone control. Integrated shades allow for complete customization with regards to shade height, so they’ll always be even – effortlessly.
Consider implementing smart shade technology alongside temperature controls; air-conditioning and shades might work together on a schedule, for example, allowing morning light in, then lowering the shades when the temperature rises to mitigate cooling costs. To discourage intruders while you’re far from home, program smart blinds to work with lighting systems and security and surveillance measures to create the illusion of an occupied home – with a minimum of energy costs to you. Use smart shades as a natural alarm clock, programming them to open with the rising sun. Set your shades to open automatically when you enter your home or office, then lower when you leave. Use tactile controls to monitor shades – step on a board to activate blinds. With audioDave’s customizable solutions, anything’s possible.
