Utilizing naturally available daylight reduces our need for electric light, and saves energy in the process. Electronic shading systems provide precision control of daylight – and can be incorporated into home automation systems or deployed independently.

Routinely, shades or blinds are raised and lowered manually as the user deems necessary. However, you are now able to utilize your shading system in a more automated fashion, saving both energy and money, and are not limited to merely changing the amount of light in a given space. Create “scenes” that can open the shades on a frosty winter day, taking advantage of warm sunlight and mitigating the winter blues. Conversely, lowering the shades and blocking solar heat during those sweltering summer months can reduce your cooling expenses.

Managing daylight can be accomplished using various keypads, remote controls, app driven smart phones and tablets, or set to an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustment. You can utilize a whole-home shading system for simultaneous control of all window treatments. Close all the shades for privacy when leaving your home with the touch of one button, or program all bedroom windows to a ‘good night’ setting that activates when you are ready for bed.

Lutron shade controls are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and operate flawlessly. Numerous control and material options coupled with cutting edge technology can transition any space to the perfect lighting level. Lutron shading systems diffuse light to prevent undesirable glare on computer or television screens, and protect furniture, fine art, rugs, and wood surfaces from damaging UV rays. If deployed on a row of windows, for example, Lutron shades align precisely within 1/16 in of each other during operation for a perfectly uniform appearance.

QMotion has designed window treatments that offer some of the most sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing shades on the market. Assembled in the United States and sold around the world by a network of premium dealers such as Revience, QMotion products require no wiring and are able to last years longer than competitors’ battery-operated systems using standard D-cell alkaline batteries. QMotion’s motorized roller shades incorporate the batteries, motor and gear mechanism inside the tube providing a sleek, low-impact design option. Other brands may have certain components outside of the tube, creating a far less refined presentation.

As with Lutron, QMotion products are environmentally friendly and help reduce energy costs. QAdvanced automated window treatments are the only shade controls on the market that feature a patented manual override, making them safer for homes with small children and pets.
