Sleep easier with automatic, motorized shades from Screen Innovations

The white light from outdoor security lamps blazes across your bedroom. You can make out the shapes of every piece of furniture in the room. Somehow, the Zionsville night seems to be conspiring to keep you awake. No matter what you do, your brain won’t stop racing -- and you certainly won’t get any sleep tonight.

We've all been there. Even though it's the middle of the night, we can't relax our minds. There are plenty of reasons you might not be able to sleep, but among the most common are ambient and artificial light. According to Sleep.org, “Artificial light disrupts the body's circadian rhythm—the body’s 24-hour sleep/wake cycle... [It’s] associated with sleep disorders like insomnia” that can ruin a good night’s rest.

Of course, dealing with ambient light from your windows is easy with automatic, motorized shades from Screen Innovations. Integrated shades block the light that seeps in from the corner of your windows so that you can enjoy a more restful night's sleep.

Control Your Home’s Climate with Motorized Shades

Control-Your-Homes-Climate-with-Motorized-Shades

For many, fall is their favorite season. Who doesn’t love a pumpkin spice latte’? But there is an adjustment period when the cold fronts come in and the winds pick up. The same goes for your Indianapolis, IN smart home. You may have a specific routine already in place for keeping your house a particular temperature. Did you know that your motorized shades can contribute to your home’s climate? Read this guide to discover how automating your shades will make managing the changing seasons easier and your home more cozy as the leaves change color.

Keep the System on Manual

One downside to the summer leaving us is that the sunshine also goes away. Instead of keeping the shades closed to block the sun’s rays, you can keep them open and enjoy watching the leaves change color. Of course you can keep them closed if you want more privacy or just feel the darkening sky is getting too gloomy.

The weather can be temperamental this time of year so you can keep the system on manual too. Wireless technology makes it easy to change the shades’ position at any moment. Use a remote control, your phone, or your voice with voice control. With Amazon Alexa you can say, “Alexa, close the shades” and your smart home will do it for you. Or, pick up a handy wireless remote and press a button to open them as you bake a pie for Thanksgiving.
