Control Shades Alongside Lights 

How do you currently control your smart lights? Through an app on your phone, tablet, or by pressing customized wall keypads? Motorized shade controls can be integrated into the same system, so from your existing lighting interface, you can raise or lower shades across the house—even if you’re away from home! 

Both wired or wirelessly, we can integrate motorized shades, blinds, and drapes to connect to the same lighting system. So, whether you’re in bed starting the day or returning home at night, you always have access to your window shades. 

Custom Lighting & Shading Scenes 

Once shades are added to your lighting system, the magic can begin! You’re free to create personalized lighting and shading scenes that create a specific atmosphere for activities or times of day. 

Imagine a “Night” scene that dims the lights, adjusts the hue to a warm, golden tone, and lowers the shades for privacy. You can automate scenes to occur independently, too, so after sunset, the “Night” scene will activate. 

Or consider an “Away” scene that instantly powers off all your lights and lowers the shades. You can get creative with a “Party” scene that sets lights to fun colors, opening the shades in certain rooms for the view and closing them in other windows.
