Manually raising and lowering a shade is easy enough. But what if the shade is very large and heavy? What if there are two, three, four, or more shades to operate and they’re located all over your house? What if there are lights on throughout the house? Wouldn’t you love to be able to turn off all the lights and adjust all the shades with the push of a single button as you’re rushing out the door? How about a “Bedtime” button that would set all the lights and shades throughout your home according to your nighttime needs? You can, with QAV.
There’s no question that automated lighting and shading discourage potential intruders. By automatically turning lights on and off and raising and lowering shades at preset times your home becomes more secure. Being able to control your lights and shades from anywhere, anytime gives you greater peace of mind when you’re home, too. Right from your bed, you can turn on all the lights inside your home in the middle of the night if you hear a suspicious noise.
