Have you ever had one night of inadequate sleep that took a week to recover from? That’s because good sleep is essential for the working adult.

This is especially important these days as schedules are constantly disrupted or if you are working from home. It’s much harder to keep healthy sleep hygiene when your commute is from the bed to the couch (or even shorter).

Fortunately, you don’t have to regulate your sleep cycle alone – home automation can help you live a happier and healthier life with some simple programming.

Automated Shades Will Align with Circadian Rhythms

Circadian rhythms are a 24-hour internal clock that helps our body regulate between day and night based partially on the light our brain is recognizing. It tells your body when to be awake and when it’s time for you to sleep. During your waking hours, you need light to help your body differentiate between day and night.

The great thing about automated interior shades is how they can be programmed to match your circadian cycles. Shades will open and close throughout the day in line with how your body should be feeling throughout the day. With this easy upgrade, you will start feeling more awake during the day and ready for bed at night – with no effort from you. Get the best sleep of your life by letting your body function the way it was meant to.

Automated Shades Allow Sunlight to be Nature’s Alarm Clock

What would you prefer? Waking up to the blaring BEEP BEEP BEEP of your alarm clock every morning. Or – your shades automatically rising at the same time every morning to wake you up to warm sunlight on your face? It will feel like you’re a Disney princess – without all the drama and evil queens. Wake up naturally and wake up rested with automatic shades lighting up your room.

Program Your Home’s Speakers with the Alarm of Your Choice

If you’re the kind of person who can’t wake up without the dulcet tones of a jackhammer, you’re in luck. You can program your home’s speaker system to wake you up with the sound of your choice at the same time every day. This is an excellent alternative to a phone’s alarm system because you can’t accidentally turn this morning wake up call off in your sleep.
