Better Light, Better You

Sunlight affects rooms and the individuals who occupy them in remarkable ways. For example, the absorption of ultraviolet light creates vitamin D, essential for the absorption of calcium. As a result, increasing natural light into your home improves focus, perceptions, wellbeing.

Manage The Sun, Wirelessly

With any addition to your home, the thought of tearing up walls to run wires and install keypads can seem off-putting. However, battery-powered motorized shades are simple to install anywhere they are needed without extensive construction, and the elegant wireless keypads fit in standard back boxes. 

The window treatments, integrated with tunable lighting, helps to manage the natural light in your home, bringing balance to your day. Start your mornings with soft colors from your luminaries as the shades gently rise on schedule. Next, move into brighter focus as you begin daily tasks, and finally, transition into warm hues as you are ready for bed.

Stay Comfortable, Save Energy

While there are clear health benefits in opening your home to the sun, the heat it generates can be problematic. Houses often heat unevenly, with southern exposures warming faster than other parts.

Environmental controls strive to provide a consistent temperature as you travel from room to room. However, if one side is too hot, it can cause your HVAC system to work unnecessarily hard. By connecting to a home automation system, motorized shades maintain just the right amount of light, lowering the ambient temperature and saving you money.

Your Assets Protected

The UV light from the sun that provides health benefits can also cause damage with overexposure. Motorized shades, triggered by sensors and/or time of day scheduling, automatically lower during the brightest points of the day. In addition, your fine furniture and artwork are protected from discoloration and fading by filtering the sun, extending their value and vibrancy.

Your home should be a place of peace and solace, the one space where you can relax and be yourself. Automated window treatments allow you to set the level of privacy you desire at the touch of a button or even the sound of your voice.
