Motorized Window Shades: Simplify Light Control

A beautiful home starts with beautiful light. If you want to make your spaces brighter, let in some light to read by, or completely black out your home theater for movie night, you can get the most out of lighting control with motorized window shades. Smart window coverings integrate with your smart home system for a fun and easy way to bolster privacy, lower energy costs, and reduce harmful UV rays. In this blog, we present a few great options for an integrated shading system that will fit seamlessly in your New England home. Keep reading to learn more.

For New Homes and Old

Motorized window shades fit well in many home projects and provide cost-saving and aesthetic-boosting benefits, alongside the expected lighting control. Whether you’re adding to your home or starting with original construction, it’s easy to integrate and build on them as part of a smart home system.

Newly built properties enjoy the durable resilience of hardwired shades. For instance, Lutron’s Sivoia QS functions with low voltage electrical wiring and utilizes common language, so it is compatible with most smart systems, like those from Control4.

Homeowners will enjoy an appealing selection of rollers, shading types, and a library of fabrics that bring any room together. Mechanical and electrical parts, like motors and wires, remain hidden from view.

If you're installing shades to an already-built home, you might not want to tear down the walls. In cases like those, Sivoia QS is a wireless shading solution. Featuring similar compatibility levels but operating on a wireless network of radio frequencies, Sivoia QS won’t interfere with your Wi-Fi signal.

Control Options

Finding the best control options for your home can seem intimidating, but Lutron simplifies it. Mounted keypads, app controls, and handheld remotes mean you can take advantage of your hardwired or wireless shading system.

Keypads appear similar to traditional light dimmers and switches but offer higher levels of control for your shades. Individual up and down commands, pre-set, custom-engraved buttons, and more let you enjoy beautiful keypads. Plus, Lutron's keypads discreetly light up so you can find them in the dark.

Additional control options, like the Lutron App, deliver digital controls directly to your smartphone or tablet. Use your lights and shades with an intuitive interface that gives you a greater variety of uses.

Lutron also integrates with smart home solutions like Control4. From your controller, use your shades, AV, lights, comfort, and security features. Timers, sensors, and other components provide hands-free enjoyment of your technology.
