Enhance Your Homes Design

Much of your homes atmosphere comes from the lighting, and motorized blinds and shades give you more control of your homes appearance by regulating how much natural light enters your space. Program your window treatments to automatically adjust throughout the day to match the suns movement, or set specific scenes that reposition your shades and change your smart lighting configuration at the same time.

The treatments themselves are elegant and fully customizable to match the décor of your home, and there’s a wow factor when you pull out your smartphone and push a button to have all of your blinds change their position simultaneously. Because you have such precise control, you can get creative with how you adjust your shades. You might be surprised to see how much you can transform a room when you have shades dropping in an ascending or descending sequence rather than having them all at the same height.

Lower Your Energy Usage

Hinsdale gets cold in the winter, and your home probably has a lot of windows where heat can escape and cold air can enter. Motorized blinds and shades go a long way in regulating temperatures in your home by creating a barrier between your room and the window. When your blinds go down, they trap a pocket of air that functions as an insulator that keeps your warm air in. If it gets too warm, you can have your smart home system lift the blinds before turning on the climate control, breaking that insulating barrier to cool the room without using extra power.

Gain More Privacy

There are times when you want to show off your home to the rest of the world, and there are times when you want some privacy for yourself and your family. Motorized blinds and shades give you privacy with the touch of a button. And if you dont want to sacrifice the amount of natural light entering your home, Lutron offers options that will block any prying eyes but still allow sunlight in.
