Automated Shades

Smart technologies for modern homes

Control your window shades with the press of a button.

Motorized, or automated, window shades are the next step in revolutionizing your home technology. With automated shading solutions you can easily raise the shades to add sunlight or lower them to reduce heat buildup while adding instant privacy. Shades can be preset to automatically open and close during a specific time a year, effectively controlling sunlight to prevent harsh U/V rays from damaging expensive furnishings, floorings, or appliances. Or if you prefer, you can simply push a button to adjust them when you want, achieving the greatest beauty and efficiency in each room at all times.

SaaviHome integrates shades into our home automation systems and/or can set them up individually. Energy savings down the road can pay for a shade investment while also helping the environment. It’s a win/win!


Why Automate?

Automated window shades can make any space more comfortable and energy efficient.

Increased Security: window treatments operate on their own, which provides the appearance that someone is always home.

Decreased Energy Usage: Automated window treatments can be integrated to work with the heating and cooling systems of a home. When the temperature of the home goes up, rather than the AC automatically turning on, your shades can be set to lower.

Maximize Daylight: Automated window treatments can work in tandem with timers and the astrological clock, helping homeowners to take advantage of daylight, and reducing the strain on lighting fixtures and bulbs.

Controlling Your Window Treatments

Automated window treatments have the ability to operate without any human interaction. By setting schedules and scenes, your shades can flawlessly lower and raise at set times during the day to ensure UV protection whether you are home or away. Homeowners can operate shades via mobile app on a smartphone or tablet, or with remote controls, making those hard-to-reach windows easy to operate.

Automated window treatments utilize a drive, or motor, to power the shade. Drives can be hardwired to power or battery operated. They operate in near silence and typically have a lifespan of over 10 years.

Hard-Wired Automated Shades

For new construction or remodel projects, take a minute to consider whether the window design of the space will require any type of window treatments as early in the process as possible. While battery-powered automated shades are a fabulous option, if you have the opportunity to hard wire your window shades for power and communication – DO IT! Wired window treatments allow for all technology and wiring to be hidden within walls, with easy access and a clean finish.

Hardwired window shades are the perfect solution for hard-to-reach windows that require daily operation. Never worry about changing batteries or whipping out a ladder to adjust your shade! With the press of one button on your smartphone, tablet, or shade remote – you can lower all of the shades in your home with ease and flexibility.

Why Smart Shades

Added Convenience

Easily control shades with a button press, tap on your mobile device, automatically, or even with your voice (when integrated with a compatible smart-home system).

Increased Privacy

Schedule shades to automatically open and close whenever you want.

Better Energy Efficiency

Schedule shades to raise and lower to prevent harsh summer rays from heating interiors up or to prevent heat loss in the winter.

Enhanced Security

Easily give your home a lived-in look while you’re away by scheduling shades to automatically raise and lower at set times.

Safer for Children

Because smart shades lack lift cords, they’re a safer option than shades with exposed cords.
