One of our favorite aspects of smart home integration is the unique customization options for every home and budget. In this, our second in a series of motorized window coverings and lighting, we'll explore the wired indoor options and why these systems may be the best in certain situations.
Let's look at the different products, materials, and control options that today’s motorized shades offer homeowners in Park City, UT, and the surrounding areas.
Hardwired motorized window shades offer several benefits. In new construction, prewiring can be easily integrated into the design and established throughout a home. A hardwired solution is possible in existing homes or remodels as our certified technicians can run wires through walls in out-of-the-way locations. With maximum power and dependability, you’re guaranteed smooth operation and blinds that raise and lower in perfect symmetry.
In 2022, Screen Innovations launched its new and improved Nano 2 motorized shading cassettes. One of the smallest and most beautiful motorized shades on the market, they offer fabric options that include UV-blocking, light-filtering, privacy, and blackout. In addition, their 200 custom color options ensure the shades blend seamlessly with your home's design.
To address the light bleeding that occurs with some shades, they added a wool light stop to the top of their cassettes and created maximum coverage in windows with as little as 5/8-inch gaps on the sides.
You may also know this company for its innovative projector screens that some define as the best in the industry. With that in mind, they also produce fabrics designed to optimize acoustical performance and come with various performance ratings.
Lutron has long been considered the industry leader in lighting and shade control and is well-known for its ground-breaking technology. They offer one of the quietest motors on the market and an extensive selection of high-end fabrics and customized coverings that provide solutions for every window type.
Lutron’s roller shades provide the right amount of light for any setting or occasion. Their blackout fabrics eliminate all daylight and are perfect for bedrooms and media rooms. In addition, dual rollers allow us to install two types of materials on one window. This means you can enjoy sheer, translucent shades during the day that let you view the beautiful outdoors and then lower the blackout shades when it's time for movie night.
They also offer motorized drapery systems, including the innovative and industry-first Kirbé vertical drapery system that pulls fabric up and completely out of view. In addition, their tensioned and cable-guided shades are designed for skylights and angled windows.
Shades can be controlled via elegant in-wall keypads, remote controls, or touchscreens. They can also be set to an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustments throughout the day. When integrated with your home automation system, one tap can control multiple systems simultaneously, including lighting, climate, entertainment, security, and more.
