Whether they’re curled up in your lap or scampering willy-nilly around the house, your pets hold a special place in your heart. They’re an important part of your family and your life, and there’s no question that you want to protect them from harm. Do you have pet safe blinds, shades, or shutters in your home? Your furry friends are curious and playful, and the whole world is their playground--including your home. Ordinary things become toys in an instant. A dangling cord looks fun and enticing; your pet doesn’t know that it harbors danger. Outfitting your windows and doors with cordless and cord-safe operating systems will remove the danger for your pets and add function to your lifestyle.
Instant Adjustments and Automated Schedules
Triple-digit temperatures are creeping into our lives as summer rounds the bend here in Arizona, and that means it’s best for our fur babies to stay inside during the hottest parts of the day. This often leaves them looking longingly out windows and sliding glass doors. Since they can’t actually go out, having a view is the next best thing. But leaving your home exposed to intense sunshine and UV rays is a recipe for disaster. By adding power to pet safe blinds and shades, you can have touch-of-a-button control from anywhere in the world and the ability to create an automated schedule. Your window treatments can adjust to keep your home comfortable and your pet happy, and you can make a change with the PowerView app on your favorite device even if you aren’t at home.
Pet–And Human–Friendly Function
Does your fur ball love to watch the activity that’s right outside? Joggers, birds, or any number of things create a feast for the eyes and excitement in the paws. A playful dog or cat can easily get tangled up in dangling cords, and long cords are often frustrating for us humans to use anyway. With cordless pet safe blinds and shades, adjustments happen with a simple push, pull, or nudge of the nose. Yes, it’s so simple that even your pets can operate them. If you have a pet that gets anxious with all the goings-on outside, top down bottom up operation is a great choice. You can block their view to calm their nerves, but still allow for daylighting so the whole family--including your furry friends--doesn’t feel like they’re living in a cave.
