With the rapid technical improvement of motorization we are now in the early stages of such a revolution with window shades. Yes the future is here and it works with a remote control. Today’s window coverings have come a long way combining beauty with energy efficiency and through the use of motorization, unparalleled convenience. Imagine a smart window shade that will automatically sense the sun, heat or cold and adjust your shade to the proper length automatically. They are here.  And what do you do about that hard to reach window shade?  No problem.  With the new radio controlled remote controls adjusting your shades is as easy as the push of a button. Are you away from home and want added security? Fine, just program your shades to open and close at the time you choose.

Are you building a new home? This is the perfect time to make sure your windows are wired with low voltage wiring so we can easily install motorized shades throughout your home. This gives you the ability to tie the entire window shading system into a home automation program. We can discuss this option with your builder so he can make your home ready for this new and popular technology.

At present most homes do not have existing power for their windows. Window treatment manufacturers know this and they have created an incredible variety of window treatments and shades that can be battery operated. The battery powered motorized shades are both reliable and very quiet. Even better, they are now controlled by radio frequency remotes so you do not even have to point the remote at the blind you are operating. And, you can program your remote to do one window or all of your motorized window treatments.

The future is here and it does work with a remote control and it works well.
