Protect Your Home This Holiday Season With Ver-Tex

Automated shades can give privacy and security for your home this holiday season, especially when you’re not home. The holidays are one of the busiest travel times of the year, and one of the most vulnerable for burglaries. Using automated shades, you can leave your home for the holidays with your mind at ease. With the touch of a button, you can control your home’s different light needs and privacy throughout the day by adjusting the positioning of your window shades.

Automated shades often feature the capability of connecting your blinds to motion and location sensors, thermostats and much more. As a result, you can have your shades automatically react when it’s too cold or hot, when you’re home or away, preventing any and all worst case storm scenarios to protect your home.

Additionally while you’re away, automated shades can be a great way to increase the appearance of someone being at home. Simple timers that turn your lights off and on every day will not provide that “lived-in” look that will steer any unwanted strangers. This can prevent someone from taking an unauthorized peek and could make your home less of a target for burglary.

Halcyon Shades Create Safe and Efficient Environments for Students

Window treatments can be used for a variety of purposes such as aesthetics, energy efficiency and even security and privacy purposes. There is a need for homes, schools, labs, and other spaces to not only have beautiful window treatments, but also functional ones that allow for maximum daylight without compromising privacy and energy efficiency. As a result, Ver-Tex Shading Solutions has decided to partner with Halcyon Shades.  

Halcyon Shades has produced a product for the window treatment industry that not only protects individuals and belongings such as expensive furniture and artwork from harmful UV rays, but also features one-way privacy shades. Many past clients of Halcyon Shades have sought out this unique product specifically for schools, as it allows the teachers and students a view to the outside while prohibiting people from the outside looking in. This visual obstruction into the classroom is an invaluable asset in increasing student and teacher safety.

A great example of this is the Kirkwood Public School system in Missouri. In summary, the superintendent was able to find the perfect solution to both financial efficiency and enhancing security on his campus with Halcyon Shades. Full article can be found here.

As mentioned above, Halcyon shades are not only great for energy efficiency and security but also for keeping out harmful UV rays. Yale University, another satisfied Halcyon Shades user, sought help in housing a significant art collection. With the use of Halcyon Shades, the university was able to minimize and maintain each room’s level of light and UV exposure, thus preserving over 185,000 objects in their art Gallery. The full case study can be found here.

With the ability to provide energy efficiency, security, and protection from harmful UV rays inside any home or institution, Halcyon Shades’ partnership with Ver-Tex Shading Solutions is changing the window treatment industry in a big way.
