Motorized Shading

Enjoy privacy and comfort across every room with a single command or tap of a button.

The Ultimate Home Convenience

Whether you’re settling down for an afternoon nap, playing a movie in the home theater, or getting ready to leave for a weeklong trip, motorized shades bring simplicity and convenience to every moment. With the press of a button, you’ll lower shades across multiple windows, rooms, or even the whole house. 

Motorized window treatments make it easy to bathe your home in natural sunlight by day, then automatically lower after sunset when you want privacy. Explore the customizable shading options available through our smart home company.

    And whatever system you have

    • Thermostats: When it gets too hot in summertime, thermostats will tell your shades to lower, automatically keeping rooms cooler.  

    • Smart Lighting: Set the perfect atmosphere with lighting ‘scenes’ that automate lights and shades in unison.

    • Voice Automation: Use your favorite voice assistant to activate shades hands-free, which is especially helpful for skylights and out-of-reach windows.

    • Security: Automate shades to rise and lower when you’re away from home, replicating an occupied house.

    • Smart Sensors: Motion and sunlight sensors cue shades, blinds, and drapes to adjust automatically, so you don’t even have to lift a finger.

    • Geofencing: As your car pulls in the driveway or you walk through the front door, shades automatically activate to your preferred setting for the time of day.

    Create a More Efficient Home

    Imagine your house automatically cooling or warming itself without cranking the thermostat or AC. It’s a reality with motorized shades, which can provide insulation against heat gain or draughts. You’ll save more energy than ever, helping both the planet and your wallet.

    Motorized shades not only save energy, but also time. Getting ready in the morning no longer involves walking from room to room pulling on shades. Instead, it’s all done through a single command or automated moment.

    Comfort All Day & All Year

    Start your days with beautiful, enriching sunlight, then minimize glare through a single command. Customizable fabrics and opacities allow you to make the smart home experience your own.

    "About 30% of a home's heating energy is lost through windows. In cooling seasons, about 76% of sunlight that falls on standard double-pane windows enters to become heat. Window coverings can help with this loss of energy by providing comfort, regulating temperatures, and lowering energy bills."

    Light Control
    Achieve comfortable light levels and reduce glare with light-filtering shades that lower without you needing to ask.
    Privacy
    Enjoy quality time at home without fear of prying eyes. Automate blinds to close when the sun goes down, or activate them when the moment calls.
    Reduce Heat Gain
    During scorching hot summer days, motorized shades can provide a barrier against the sun, so you’ll rely less on the AC.
    Reduce Heat Loss
    Alternatively, honeycomb shades provide insulation on your windows, keeping warmth inside.
    Sound Insulation
    Thick drapery enhances room acoustics and soundproofing—all easily controlled with your smart home system.
    UV Protection
    Protect artwork, furniture, books, and wall coverings from fading with automated scheduling or sensors.

    Design

    The beauty of custom window treatments lies in that first word—custom. We work with premium vendors to obtain shades, drapes, and blinds that fit any sized window frame, from floor-to-ceiling windows to skylights and even curved walls.

    Beyond shape and size, you’ll have endless quality fabrics, materials, and opacities to choose from. Dual-roller shades allow you to utilize two fabric types, alternating between sheer and blackout shades and everything in between.

    Choosing your Window Treatments

    Explore your options and design a custom shading system that complements your distinct style and taste.
    1. Determine Your Needs
    • Privacy: Semi-opaque shades may work in certain rooms, while opaque or blackout shades better serve others. Consider privacy needs in bedrooms, bathrooms, and other areas. 
    • Light Control: Do you prefer total darkness while sleeping in the morning or enjoy some sunlight filtering through? 
    • Energy Efficiency: Honeycomb motorized shades provide insulation on windows, keeping rooms cooler in summer and warmer in winter. 
    • Safety: If you have curious children or pets in the house, switch to cordless, motorized blinds that eliminate risks of strangulation or choking.
    2. Consider the Room Type
    • Living Rooms: Let light gently filter in while maintaining privacy with sheer curtains or drapes. 
    • Bedrooms: Block light and provide extra privacy with motorized blackout curtains or cellular honeycomb shades.
    • Kitchens: Wood blinds and Roman shades are popular in kitchens for their practicality, style, and easy-to-clean surfaces.
    • Bathrooms: Moisture-resistant models like vinyl shades or faux wood blinds are top picks for bathroom installations.
    3. Style and Decor
    • Modern/Contemporary: Modern homes are best suited to shades with clean lines and a sleek design. Roller shades, panel track blinds, and cellular shades with minimalist fabric designs, neutral colors, or metal materials enhance the contemporary aesthetic. 
    • Traditional: For a more traditional interior design, opt for deep colors and rich textures with elegant Roman shades, drapery, or wood blinds. Drapes in silk, velvet, or brocade with tassels or trim add an extra touch of luxury. 
    • Rustic/Farmhouse: Who says smart shades need to look techy? Create a rustic cabin or farmhouse interior with organic materials like wood blinds, woven wooden shades, or bamboo. Layering shades creates an additional sense of warmth and coziness.  
    • Eclectic: Get creative with your motorized shades by combining bold patterns, vibrant colors, and varying opacities. The key lies in balancing bold design choices with neutral elements to maintain harmony in the space.
    • Industrial: Complement exposed brick, pipes, and metal features with meta blinds, wooden shutters, or roller shades in neutral or monochromatic tones.
    4. Material and Durability
    • Moisture Resistance: In moisture-prone areas like the kitchen and bathroom, shading materials like vinyl, faux wood, and aluminum resist warping and mold and will maintain their appearance for years to come. 
    • Sunlight and UV Protection: Protect your furnishings from fading in sun-drenched rooms with fade-resistant solar shades and curtains that lower just as UV rays strike your window.  
    • Insulation: Cellular (honeycomb) shades include air pockets that add a layer of insulation on your windows, keeping rooms warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Thermal curtains can also provide insulation to maintain indoor temperatures. 
    • Ease of Cleaning: For easy-cleaning shades, opt for synthetic materials that can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Curtains and certain fabrics may require more frequent laundering and professional cleaning services.
    • Safety and Durability: Pull cords can be hazardous for young children and pets, so go cordless with motorized window treatments. Concerned about wear and tear in the house? Choose durable materials that will look beautiful no matter what.
