No need to adjust for different times of the year or make any changes during daylight savings. Living room blinds can be synchronised with garden lights, the blinds lower at night when the garden is switched off.
Home Privacy is maximised

If your main living areas face the street you can program them to go down once the lights in the room go on so people cannot look into your home.
