“Daylight has a quality that we respond to emotionally. Colors read true, finishes reveal their texture, and an uplifting quality pervades any room bathed in daylight. As we become more conscious of our footprint on this planet, we realize that making the most of daylight in our homes simply makes sense. Utilizing daylight reduces our need for electric light, and saves energy. Lutron shading systems provide precision control of daylight – all at the touch of a button.”
(quoted from the Lutron Website)
Lutron controllers are designed to look and operate very elegantly. At the press of a button or touch of a screen, you can create the right amount of light for any activity. Shades operate virtually silently and align precisely within 1/16 of an inch of each other for a balanced and beautiful look to a row of windows.
Our shading systems can be controlled in an amazing number of ways; using keypads, IR remote controls, wireless tabletop controls, touch screens, tablet computers or even by using your own voice! We can also program scheduled events for blinds to open and close automatically while you are home or away on vacation!
Automated blinds help you save additional energy beyond the normal day to day use of shades. In winter you can schedule shades to open, taking energy saver advantage of sunlight to warm a room on a sunny day. In the summer you can do the opposite by lowering shades to block or reduce solar heat gain, thereby reducing your air conditioning costs. Lutron shading fabrics are made from sustainable materials for additional environmental and energy savings.
Give your home that “lived-in” look while you are on vacation by having your motorized shades and blinds open and close automatically on schedules that you set. With our powerful Sophie Automation system you can control your blinds from anywhere in the world by voice or via the internet!
