Exposed Roller Shades—The Up-and-Coming Interior Design Element
Motorized shades have long been a favorite of our clients and are often one of the first automated home technologies they’re introduced to. Imagine your shades automatically rising in the morning, waking you with the first rays of the sun. When evening comes, they automatically lower to create a private haven. When you’re away, they operate throughout the day, raising and lowering as though you’re home and deterring any potential thieves.
That, and so much more, is possible for homes utilizing this latest home automation technology. At Andrus Smart Technologies, we partner with the leading brands to create homes in San Diego, CA, that define best-in-class automated ease of living. One of these brands is Lutron, an industry leader in automated shading and lighting solutions.
In 2017, they came out with their custom motorized Palladiom roller shades that delivered a sophisticated and sleek design. Then, in 2021, they unveiled their Palladiom wire-free exposed roller shading system, making it almost effortless to transform a home’s interior and shade control. So, let’s explore what Palladiom roller shades can offer your home.
Having battery operated shades means that no pre-wiring is needed, enabling them to be easily installed at any point, even after a home is complete. No wires mean no running wire from the window to the power source, which means no cutting holes into your drywall and interior walls.
These shades run on Lutron’s Active Energy Optimization, a patent-pending battery management solution. The system enables the shades to run on six D-cell batteries that last from 3 to 5 years.
Sleek Industrial Design
Exposed roller shades are definitely trending. Their sleek, sophisticated design provides a modern accent, requiring no pocket, fascia, or recess. It blends seamlessly into any architectural style as if they’re floating in midair.
All the electronics are hidden within a bracket designed to enhance your interior architecture. These brackets come in seven hand-finished materials, including satin nickel, black and clear anodized, brass, and opal white.
Palladiom roller shades also feature Lutron’s Intelligent Hembar Alignment, which synchronizes all automated shades in a single room or entire home. Movement is quiet, effortless, and balanced.
Roller shade fabrics come in varying textures, colors, and styles. Sheer fabrics let in diffuse sunlight while allowing you to view the beauty of the outdoors. Translucent materials turn the sun’s rays into a soft glow and provide privacy. Blackout shades are ideal for media rooms and bedrooms, blocking light and delivering total darkness.
Easy to Control
You can control your motorized shades with beautiful in-wall custom keypads, a handheld remote, or voice control. We can also set your shades to adjust throughout the day automatically. One touch manages your shades, lighting, entertainment, climate, security, and more when integrated with your home automation system.
At Andrus Smart Technologies, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality smart technology that defines ease of living. To learn more about motorized window coverings or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Andrus Smart Technologies today.
