We often hear about the damaging effects of sunlight, from accelerating aging to skin cancer and cataracts. Yet, according to the World Health Organization, a markedly larger number of people experience diseases due to low levels of exposure to sunlight, which affects the musculoskeletal and immune systems.
As with most things in life, it seems the answer lies in a happy medium. So, how do you manage this life-giving element in your home without manually raising and lowering your shades throughout the day? The solution is motorized blinds.
Let’s look at how these window coverings create the perfect amount of daylight for homes and homeowners in Phoenix, AZ.

Besides the long-term health effects, sunlight alters our moods and emotions. Walking into a sun-kissed room can feel rejuvenating and mood-enhancing. When sunlight enters your eyes, it stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that results in a happier, calmer, and more focused emotional state.
The trick to automating daylight in a home is bringing in just enough natural light without affecting our ability to look at TVs or computer screens or damaging the floors, furniture, and fine art. At Technology Design Associates, we partner with Lutron, the industry leader in motorized shades and automated lighting. They offer numerous solutions with design elements that blend in with any home and control features that make managing daylight effortless.
Lutron offers motorized window coverings in the form of elegant draperies, modern roller shades, energy-efficient honeycomb cellular shades, and more. These smart window treatments can be controlled with one touch on an in-wall keypad, touchscreen, smartphone app, or voice command.
We can also program them to raise and lower based on schedules and scenes. For example, they can raise every morning at a scheduled time, waking you and your family with the light of the sun. When it's time for dinner, tap the "Dining" button and any open shades lower, creating greater privacy and peace.
Lutron’s smart wood blinds automatically adjust based on the sun's position, letting in just enough diffuse sunlight while limiting direct, harmful rays. Their horizontal sheer blinds bring together fabric vanes and sheer fabric, offering the perfect amount of filtered sunlight.
