Enjoy Control Just the Way You Want it

The primary benefit of motorized shades is not having to rely on wands or cords to manage them. Though some low-end models just offer remote control, industry experts like Lutron provide a wide range of control options. It’s your choice to pull shades up and down using mobile apps, dedicated touchpads, elegant keypads or even voice commands. Or automate changes entirely using scheduled scenes that open shades at a given time each morning and close them when it’s time for bed. Use photo sensors that close blinds when a window is hit by direct sunlight to eliminate glare and heat gain.

Choose the Perfect Match for Your Décor

Relish in the benefits of motorized shades without sacrificing your décor with Lutron’s wide range of models and fabrics. Entry-level solutions usually only offer roller shades in a handful of colors. Revamp your lifestyle and décor with honeycomb shades, drapes, blinds, and more. All models come with custom color-matching options to ensure they fit seamlessly with the rest of your interior design.

Incorporate Wireless Solutions When Needed       

Not as flashy but just as important is figuring out if you want to go with wired or wireless shading. Even though wireless options are cheaper and easier to install, wired installations will always be more reliable. Not only are they easier to maintain—with no battery replacements needed—but they typically also include a wider range of model and control options.

However, there may be times when wireless options are the best option—especially if you’re adding shades to an existing space. Cutting down walls to integrate wiring is costly and invasive. Some windows may also be hard to reach with wires so a wireless option may be the only feasible solution. Add Lutron’s wireless Sivoia models which include drapes, shades and blinds.
