We all know that Florida summers can be almost brutally hot. Is it the heat or the humidity? In Fort Lauderdale, arguably it’s both. To keep cool, too many Florida homes are darkened as shades and window treatments are drawn to keep out the hot sun and not overwork the air conditioning. Unfortunately, that also shuts out a lot of the beauty of the Sunshine State. If you have a condo off of A1A with beautiful ocean or city views, or you look out over one of our many canals and waterways, you want to enjoy your views – after all, the sun does move during the day.
There’s a solution for both blocking out the hot sun when you need to and enjoying your views – motorized blinds. With motorized blinds, you’re just a button press or even voice command away from opening and closing your blinds any way you want. Let’s explore the many benefits of motorized blinds, and how you can beat the heat in Ft. Lauderdale in style this summer.

If you rush out the door for work or an appointment, do you wish there was a way to remotely turn on your alarm system and “away” lights because you forgot to do it again?
