Motorized window treatments make managing your home’s window coverings effortless

Our window coverings perform many tasks, providing beauty, safety, and protection. However, they can also be slightly inconvenient, requiring us to raise and lower them throughout the day. We may open them in the morning to bring in the early daylight, then close them when the sun’s rays make it hard to see our computer screens or TVs. We open them to watch another beautiful San Diego, CA, sunset and then close them to ensure our privacy.

There is a better way. Motorized window treatments manage your daylight and privacy, providing just enough diffuse sunlight without damaging your home’s interiors. Let’s see how it’s done.

Controlling daylight

There’s something exquisitely beautiful about seeing filtered sunlight stream into a room. It inspires us and enhances our well-being while providing warmth and beauty. But, of course, like many things in life, too much of a good thing can turn into something bad.

Our days get busy, and we don’t always notice when diffuse sunlight has turned into direct UV rays, the part of the sun that damages floors, fine art, and furnishings. Motorized shades take control of daylight, remaining open until direct sunlight or climbing temperatures prompt them to lower.

Our certified technicians can also program your window coverings to rise and lower based on your lifestyle and daily activities. For example, some clients never want to miss another beautiful sunset. In these homes, we’ll program west-facing shades to open right before the sun dips below the horizon.

Others want to enjoy their beautiful landscape lighting. We’ll program the window coverings facing the back of their homes to remain open in the evening while those on the street-facing windows close for privacy. Today, you’re truly only limited by your imagination.


When integrated with your Savant home automation platform, you experience one-touch and voice control. With one tap on a touchscreen, in-wall keypad, or remote, lower or raise one or every shade in your home. At the day’s end, press the “Evening” button, and all the shades lower in perfect unison while the lighting transforms to a softer hue that promotes relaxation.

You now experience effortless control of your shades, lighting, climate, entertainment, security, and more. And they all work together, creating the perfect environment for different moods and activities.
