Apple HomeKit: Convenient Control for Automated Shades
How do you control the atmosphere of your home? Have you ever dreamed about doing it from the palm of your hand? What about with simple voice requests for Siri? Apple HomeKit makes that all possible. And, it’s already on your iPhone–just waiting to help you make creating the perfect home environment easy.
Meet Apple HomeKit
So, what exactly is Apple HomeKit? It’s one app for convenient control of ALL your smart home accessories. From security systems and doorbells to thermostats and automated shades, your whole home is at your fingertips and at your command. Plus, adding accessories to your HomeKit is incredibly easy. All it takes is a single scan! (Scroll down to find out more about how we can help you with this.)
Why Motorized Shades?
The benefits of motorized shades are immense. Automation just makes life better–and a lot less complicated. Imagine how things would be if, no matter where you were in your home, the lighting was always comfortable. If your shades would close automatically for efficiency when your thermostat climbs to a certain temperature. If your room-darkening shades would lower before pattering little feet make their way into bed for a restful nap or a good night’s sleep.
While we’re on the topic of sleep, think about the bliss of sleeping in a bit longer on the weekends because you’ve set your shades to stay closed longer than they do Monday through Friday. And, if you ever forget to do something or check something at home in your mad dash to work or in rushing the whole family to the airport for what’s supposed to be a relaxing vacation…Apple HomeKit lets you take care of it from wherever you are!
