Motorized shades and drapes are increasingly popular options for people who are adding cutting-edge conveniences to their homes. You can raise and lower these motorized window coverings with the touch of a button on a remote control. You can also have the shades open and close automatically according to a schedule custom tailored to your needs.
Imagine being able to control the shades in your bedroom from the comfort of your bed. With your remote control, you could open the shades in the morning, flooding the room with light, before your feet even touch the floor. Motorized window coverings also save you time and make your life easier if you have many windows in your home or if you have windows that are hard to reach.
Automated motorized shade systems can enhance the climate control in your home by keeping sunlight out on hot days. The most sophisticated systems can even sense the position of the sun and adjust the shades accordingly.
Your rooms will be more comfortable when shades block the excess sunlight that causes heat to build up inside. A reduced heat build up, in turn, can reduce your need for air conditioning and save you money on your energy bills. Blocking excess sunlight also helps keep your furniture, artwork, and photographs from fading.
If you automate your shades, you will no longer have to remember to adjust them when you leave the house, which could result in significant energy cost savings. Automated shades can also enhance the security of your home. Your home automation system can raise and lower the shades when you are away, creating the appearance that someone is in the house and deterring would-be thieves.
Motorized shades can also open your window coverings in precise alignment, creating a sophisticated and polished look in your home.
The shades integrate beautifully with controlled lighting systems. By using both of these systems together, you can create the perfect ambiance for any ordinary or special occasion. Imagine, for example, the excitement your guests would feel if they were sitting in your home theater, and the system lowered the blackout shades and dimmed the overhead lights at the same time.
If you don’t yet have a home theater, we can provide that for you too. We are home automationspecialists who create custom A/V, lighting, climate control, and security systems all in one integrated system that is easy to use. Your motorized shades will be a well-integrated part of the overall system that enhances the pleasure you feel in your home in many ways.
If you haven’t looked at motorized shades recently, you may be surprised at the choices that are now available. These choices include roller shades, horizontal blinds, elegant honeycomb, pleated, and Roman shades, Venetian blinds, and traditional drapery on tracks. Shades can be anywhere from sheer to totally opaque based on your needs in particular rooms. You can choose any fabric that you like, and we can use it to make the shades. We will be glad to work with a decorator, if that is something you want to do.
