LET YOUR SMART HOME AUTOMATICALLY MANAGE SUNLIGHT & PRIVACY 

Smart automation has transformed how we manage our homes in Mandeville, LA. Gone are the light switches, manually controlled window coverings, and multiple remotes. In their place are beautiful custom-engraved keypads, high-resolution touchscreens, and our voice. Now, we press the ‘Good Morning’ button, and the shades rise, lights softly illuminate, and the ‘Wake Up’ playlist streams through our home. 

It's an incredible world we live in. And it gets even better. 

The automation aspect of this remarkable technology refers to an intelligent home that manages itself with no effort on your part—no button pressed or voice command. When programmed correctly, your many automated systems operate seamlessly, performing throughout the day and night, doing their job as you do yours. 

Motorized shades are one of these systems. Through programmed schedules, sensors, and geo-fencing, your shades automatically raise and lower throughout the day, maintaining the perfect natural light and privacy while protecting your home from harmful UV rays. Let’s explore the possibilities.
