Elevate your home with automated shades

How much thought do you give to your window treatments? Are they simply there to let the sun in or keep it out? What if they could do more for you and your home? Automated shades bring so many benefits to your home or office space and act as a way to control and harness the one form of light we usually can’t…sunlight. Automated shades add convenience but they also become a practical, integrated part of your home.


Think of the convenience that garage door openers provide. It can be snowing, cold and icy outside but with the touch of a button you can open your garage door without leaving the comfort of your car. Although you could take the extra minute to get out of your car and manually open the door, most people would agree that a garage door opener is something they wouldn’t want to live without. Automated shades operate on the same principle. Once you realize the benefits they provide, you won’t go back. They can be operated by a remote, keypad, smart device, set on a schedule or operated through voice control. You can easily control shades on large or hard to reach windows and schedule your shades to automatically open or close with sunset and sunrise.

Temperature Control, Light Management and Energy Savings

By choosing the right opacity shade for each room, you can help insulate windows that get hot in the summer and cold in the winter. And by choosing a fabric with a higher R-value and setting your shades on a schedule, you can maximize the efficiency of your shades and save energy. You may end up with a room-darkening shade in your bedroom, a translucent shade in your dining room and a sheer shade in your kitchen.

Low Maintenance & Durable

The battery-powered shades operate on regular D-cell batteries with an average battery life of 3-5 years. This means you won’t continuously be changing the batteries or ever have to search for a special battery. They are dust resistant so you don’t have to worry about cleaning them and they are 100% cord free, which makes them safe for children and pets. They operate quietly as to not wake sleeping children and are very durable. If your kids decide to manually pull on them, it will not hurt the shade.

Visual Appeal

Oftentimes, functionality and visual appeal don’t go hand in hand. With these shades, they do. There is a vast selection of fabrics and styles to choose from so these shades can integrate seamlessly into any décor.

Automated shades can be either battery-powered or hard wired making them the perfect addition to new construction or existing homes. If you are interested in learning more, call 715-539-3220 or email smarthome@inthelitellc.com. As always, we hope we’ve made your day brighter!
