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.

In this blog, we highlight the main features of a smart home that will help you sell an Indianapolis-area residence quicker and easier.

Fast, High-Definition Video Intercom

Intercoms have evolved a lot over the years. They used to only have audio capabilities, and even then the sound was grainy and unclear. Today, you can communicate with everyone in the house, not only with audio, but video as well. Check on your sleeping baby using HD cameras and Hi-Fi audio. You could also screen visitors at your front door by bringing up the front camera to see who it is, and then let them in. Additionally, you can be selective about where you want the audio and video intercom capabilities, and when you can access them. Put only audio in the bathrooms, and video in the kitchen. Restrict intercom usage to certain times of the day with the “Do not disturb” function. With Control4, your video intercom experience is under your complete control.
