Automate Shades to Work with Your Smart Home Control System
Use your smart automation system for full control of your technology and home. Set it to close the shades when it detects too much heat — that way your climate control system doesn’t kick in and use unnecessary energy. Instead, the shades will know when to close and block out the sun.
This is especially true with blackout shades, which completely block any sunlight — and thus heat — from entering the space at all.
