These are the most popular type of motorized window shades. They come in a variety of sizes, colors and openness factors. The latter has to do with the amount of light they let in so you can choose between sheer options in your living room and blackout shades in your bedroom. If you want some privacy while still enjoying the view, you should be using darker fabrics that absorb more of the incoming light. Lutron’s roller shades can also be battery–operated, so they’re easier to install in existing homes.
Similar to roller shades, honeycomb shades come in a variety of sizes while offering a more elegant, textured style. The best thing about honeycomb shades is that they’re ideal for insulation. During the summer months, they lower the amount of heat gain caused by the sun so you can stay cool without overloading your HVAC system. As the temperatures dip in the winter, honeycomb shades keep warm air from escaping, so it takes less energy to heat up your space.
You can also incorporate blinds into your motorized window shades. This model is ideal if you want to give a modern feel to a rustic look. Lutron offers lift and tilt capabilities with their blinds so you can adjust the amount of sunlight entering the room. With Lutron’s lighting control systems you can save the lift and tilt positions you prefer for specific times of day or activities and pull them up later.
Smart control isn’t limited to shades and blinds; Lutron offers a couple of choices for drapes as well. Instead of having to deal with heavy fabric, you can use Lutron’s drapery track systems to operate them. They are an ideal addition to a living room or media room for a comforting style that also keeps out the light. If you have space limitations, you can use Lutron’s Kirbé vertical drapery system. It pulls the fabric up and completely out of the way to create a more sleek style for your home.
