Lets look at some of the benefits.

  • All shades up or down with a touch of a button
  • Keeps the home warmer or cooler depending on the time of year.
  • Works in conjunction with lighting control systems
  • Reduces glare by providing diffused light
  • Protects furniture and artwork from direct sunlight
  • Can be set to lower or rise based on the earth’s astrological position

Yes, automated shades can be set to know the exact time the sun rises in the morning and when the sun sets in the evening. They can also be programmed to know what days are longer in the summer and shorter in the winter. They even take in consideration of leap year!

Take for example, a master bedroom window that receives direct sun each morning from the east. Every morning when the sun rises, the sun will be right in the homeowners face. An automated motorized shade solution can automatically lower the shades gradually and block the morning sun with exact timing. The shade will then begin to rise once the sun has passed over to the west.  In addition to having the shades in synch with the earth’s position to the sun, the homeowner always has the ability to use their keypad, smart phone, or touch panel to control the shades position anyway they desire.

What types of shades are available as a motorized shading option?

  • Roller
  • Drapery
  • Roman
  • Venetian
  • Skylight
  • Blinds

Are there wireless options in addition to wired motorized shades?

Yes, there are both wired and wireless motorized shade options. Depending on your budget, home square footage and if your home is a new construction or not, will probably determine which solution is right for you.

What control systems do motorized shades work with?

Pretty much all automated control systems have functionality for motorized shades. These include Savant, Control 4 and Lutron, but there are others as well.

Key Takeaway: For home owners or business owners looking to add a level of sophistication, design and functionality to their living spaces, a motorized shading solution would be an excellent option.
