Just imagine being able to push a button, speak a voice command, or push a button on your smart device and watch your shades or blinds open or close. You now have control of your privacy and light levels at the push of a button or a simple voice command. We highly recommend checking out some of our motorized window treatment options.

They are the best window coverings to help every day feel more convenient and give you a connected and sophisticated experience. Welcome to the future of automated window coverings.

Our Motorized Window Treatments Give You the Convenience You’re Looking For

Stop manually adjusting your heavy or hard-to-reach blinds or shades. With our new high-tech window coverings, you can easily open or close your window coverings using a timer, your voice, or even your smart device. If you want the added privacy, ease of use, safety, and convenience of using high-quality motorized window treatments, then you’re in luck! We have the options available to make sure you get exactly what you need to fit your home or business. 

What are the main benefits of motorized window coverings?

With motorized window coverings you receive: 

  • Dependable control of the RTS (radio frequency) motor that’s included with your order of motorized window coverings.
  • Energy savings by raising and lowering window coverings at particular times.
  • Seamless compatibility with your choice of remotes, wireless switches, timers, home automation systems, or even switch controls.
  • Adaptable customization to match your colors, decor, and power requirements so you can enhance your home or business. 
  • Efficient operation with the motorization drapery track giving you ease of automatic and seamless operation with hard-wired or battery power.
  • Flexibility to meet your specific needs with quiet operation, types of fabrics, and various forms of control. 

Why Would You Want to Install Motorization Products?

Instead of climbing hard-to-reach windows, dealing with long cables or cords, why not have the added convenience of automated blinds or shades at the push of a button? Motorized window coverings are able to interface with most smart devices and smart homes giving you the ability to open or close them on a timer or at the push of a button. You can even control them with your voice, mobile device, or a remote control.

You can hard-wire them into the electrical system of the home, power them through batteries, or even charge them through solar panels. From automated opening at first light of the day to closing at sunset, you’ll never want to go back to the manual way of opening and closing shades again. Whatever your vision for automated or motorized window coverings, we can most likely bring it into reality.
