Discover the Convenience Motorized Window Shades Bring to Daily Life
When many people hear the term ‘smart home,’ they think of The Jetsons or the ‘90s movie Smart House. They may imagine gadgets and gizmos and a computer that takes over.
In reality, smart homes are much less dramatic—but much more luxurious—than science fiction depicts. Today, luxury homeowners across Vero Beach and Palm Beach live with smart systems that blend seamlessly into their house. You may not even realize someone owns a ‘smart home’ until you notice their window shades lowering on their own.
