When the talk is about home automation and smart homes, the conversation moves automatically to lighting and A/V. However, curtains are an important component of any good home automation system. Without curtain and shading control, which modulates the flow of natural light, mood lighting scenarios are difficult, if not impossible to create. Moreover, homes with large and multiple windows make it tough on the homeowner to move from room to room to open and close curtains and blinds. Curtain control is achieved using motorized blinds and switches.
