Smart Home

Automatic Blinds Pique Your Interest?

Smart home technology has released some great features you might be considering, including motorized shades. Did you know as part of the process of building a new home or remodeling they can be hardwired? This saves having to use batteries for smart blinds, no longer having to change them every couple of years. Planning ahead to install motorized shades right away, will allow for an electrician or low voltage specialist to place the correct wiring into the groundwork of your new home, directly after the framing is complete.

Already Have Wiring?

All you need to do is tell us, and we’ll send an automation consult to your home. They will verify if the current wiring can be used or if there is another solution.

Do They Work With Smart Homes?

What do the integrated systems–like Alexa, Control 4, Google Home, Elan, & many other smart home companies–all have in common? They are all available on the market–AND compatible with our Hunter Douglas smart shades. We specially train and certify our motorization experts to integrate your automated blinds with your smart home system. Not seeing the smart home system you use? Reach out to us, and we can verify if your automated shades will integrate.

How Are the Functional Features Picked?

The features should be selected based on the needs of each individual area. In bedrooms, room darkening blinds are usually chosen to maintain privacy and to get a good night’s sleep. In the entrance, many people select an option that brings in natural light, but also provides privacy. We will make sure each room and area is discussed and evaluated to provide the best solution for the lifestyle needs of your family.

What’s Next?

Most often, while building a new home or remodeling, final measurements can be taken once the mudding and taping of the framework is complete. It will seem like a long time until the completion, but we will be able to obtain the correct information. One of our design consultants can meet with you, or your contractor, in the home to take all necessary measurements.

A Custom Process

You will be guided gracefully through the process by a design consultant. This process is specialized to fit you. There are clients who prefer to order by priority of rooms. And some clients order all at once. We tailor the experience to your comfort.
