Enjoy Elegantly Managed Daylight and Darkness
The right window coverings play a significant part in a home’s aesthetics. They may make a home feel light and airy, elegant, or modern. They let in the diffuse light of the sun while protecting furniture and provide privacy when night descends.
Smart shades go one step further, offering one-touch control that easily raises or lowers them. You no longer walk to each window and manually lower the shades when it’s movie time. Or raise each of them in the morning to let the daylight shine through and catch a glimpse of the beautiful San Diego, CA, weather. Instead, one tap on a touchscreen or in-wall keypad raises or lowers them in your entire home or just one room.
Automated shades, however, offer even more, automatically adjusting throughout the day with no effort on your part. Let’s explore the possibilities with today’s smart window coverings.

Using programmed schedules, temperature monitors, and sunlight detection, your shades raise and lower automatically. For example, in the morning, we can program them to raise with the first sun’s light, bringing in the beauty of the outdoors and the sun’s warmth.
As the sun rises in the sky, we’ll program specific shades to lower, protecting your furniture from the damaging effects of UV rays. Daylight and privacy needs are unique to every client and their lifestyle. Some people enjoy every sunset and want the shades to open before the sun hits the horizon.
Other people want to ensure their privacy and request their window coverings close before darkness arrives. Then, there are families with extensive landscape lighting, so beautiful that it resembles a painting. These homeowners often want the shades facing the backyard left open to enjoy the incredible view.
Choose From Numerous Styles and Fabrics
Our designers and integrators will go over the extensive smart window coverings available today. At Andrus Smart Technologies, we partner with Lutron, the world leader in smart shades and lighting.
Lutron offers over 1,400 different fabrics. Their styles range from cellular shades that trap air, creating a layer of insulation, and hardwood blinds that automatically adjust throughout the day. Their motorized draperies bring beauty and elegance, and their tensioned shades offer the perfect solution for skylights and architecturally diverse windows.
One of our clients’ favorite lines is their Palladiom shading system. These exposed roller shades offer a sleek, modern design, with sheer fabrics letting in the diffuse light of the sun and blackout shades providing total darkness for movie nights.
An Integrated Solution
When integrated with your home automation platform, you can control your lighting, shades, climate, and entertainment from the same user-friendly interface. This allows for total integration with one touch managing multiple systems. For instance, tap the “Good Night” button when it’s time for bed, and your shades lower, lights dim, and doors lock.
