Manually opening and closing blinds is inconvenient and time-consuming.
Even with those costly electric blinds you have to press buttons and guess the best angle of slats.
As a result we too often rely on and pay for artificial lighting, cooling and heating, even when we don’t have to.
Well, think about this: what if your window blinds could automatically adjust to the changing light and temperature conditions, without your time and efforts to adjust each blind? Jalousier makes it happen, saving your time and money. Also, you won’t have to keep climbing over furniture to reach the blinds.

Programmable thermostats and window blinds are two different technologies, both addressing the economic and environmental impact of HVAC mismanagement. In fact, relying solely on a thermostat to regulate the temperature of your home is grossly ignoring the benefits of simply closing or opening the blinds.
“Did you know that in a typical home, windows account for nearly 50% of the heat gain and loss? Though windows are a beautiful feature in any home, they can also account for 10% to 25% of our bills. Since it costs the average American home about $1,000 to heat the house, that's up to $225 going right out the window! Also during the summer, air conditioners must work harder to cool hot air from sunny windows, eating much more energy and driving up costs. Blinds can reduce heat gain by as much as 45%. It is a practical option that gives you air and light flow, works to minimize harmful summer sun radiation, and maximizes heat retention in the winter....”Window Treatments = Lower Heating Bills
Every time you install Jalousier and switch it on, it automatically determines its range of motion. This means over-opening and over-closing are avoided.
