App Control for Every Window Opening and Exterior Spaces

Using an app to manage your technology is a cool part of living in a smart home. But when it comes to shades, it can really be a necessity. A lot of houses have hard-to-reach windows that can only be accessed by a ladder, and who wants to get on one every time they want to close the blinds? With smart window treatments, you can open an app on your smartphone and simply press one button to close or open the shades.

You can even schedule them to open and close throughout the day according to specific times and days. Keep the solar shades down during the day to save energy and then draw the blackout shades later in the evening when you want absolute privacy. More control brings added peace of mind.

Choose from Beautiful Patterns, Colors, and Designs

You may think that you can find the perfect pattern for your bedroom at Bed Bath and Beyond, but the reality is that exclusive dealers have a lot more options when it comes to shade designs. If you have a very specific look in mind, we can make it come to life. Our two favorite brands for motorized shades, Lutron and Somfy, have a variety of styles, colors and unique patterns.

Here are a few of the most popular options:

  • Drapes: Gives a classic, vintage look to your room.
  • Roller Shades: A modern take on window treatments, this option is simple and sleek.
  • Venetian Blinds: Allow light to peek through your blinds and still enjoy a traditional design in your spaces.


Save on Energy

You’ll reap more benefits by tying in your motorized blinds with other smart devices throughout your home.  One great example of this is how you can save energy by coordinating the shades with your lighting and thermostat. Your air conditioning system won’t have to work as hard to cool your house, and your lights will never have to be on at full blast.
