Motorized Window Treatments
For the ultimate in convenience, luxury, and technology, almost all custom window treatments can be motorized. Motorization allows you to operate those hard-to-reach windows coverings with the touch of a button – whether using a sleek remote, wireless wall switch, or iPhone app.
People increasingly choose motorized shades for a variety of reasons, beyond convenience. Motorized window treatments are an excellent child safety measure, as they eliminate potentially dangerous cords. Motorized draperies, shades, and patio screens also help reduce energy costs by automatically raising or lowering at certain times of day.
Motorized window treatments can be achieved either through hard wiring or battery-power. To outfit your home or commercial space with hardwired shades, we can consult with your architect, builder, and electrician about running wiring to your windows and creating recessed pockets above, in which shades may disappear completely. Although most easily achieved during the planning and construction phase, your existing home or commercial space may also be retrofit with hardwired shades and controlled via popular home automation systems, such as Lutron® Homeworks – seamlessly integrating your window coverings, lighting, security system, and more.
Alternately, window coverings of a certain size may be motorized by battery-operation, eliminating the need for costly wiring or sheet rock repair work. We frequently utilize the Somfy® motorization system, which features ultra-quiet motors and ease of programming. Other motorized window treatment brands we commonly work with are Crestron motorized window treatments including roller shades, roman shades, skylight shades, and drapery tracks.
