Various variations of motorized shades are available to suit any style or need. Consider opacity, washability, color and prints when choosing a shade.

Some blinds require hard-wiring and need to be professionally installed. Others operate on batteries and work with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant.

Easy to Operate

With motorization and automation, your smart shades can be controlled from an app or with voice commands. You can also pair them with your thermostat and other smart products in your home to set a schedule for when you want your blinds to open or close. You can even sync them with your smart alarm clock so they’ll automatically open in the morning and shut at night.

Regardless of the fabric or color you choose for your shade, regular maintenance will help keep them looking and functioning their best. Use a non-abrasive cleaner and a microfiber cloth to gently wipe away dirt and dust that accumulates over time. You can also remove any stains or discolorations that appear on the surface by carefully focusing on that area. Always refer to the cleaning instructions in your owner’s manual or online to ensure you’re using the proper cleaners and techniques for your specific product.

If you’re using a remote control for your solar shade, make sure to clean the headrail and motor each time before you use it. It’s a good idea to start with a vacuum first to get the majority of the dirt and debris out of the headrail or brackets, then follow Sunshade Electric Roller Blind up with a slightly damp microfiber cloth. If your shades are made from woven wood materials, periodically wipe them down with a soft sponge and mild solution of soap and water.

Easy to Clean

Roller shades are sleek and simple so they’re easy to clean and maintain. They come in a variety of on-trend colors and fabrics that allow your style to shine while also providing excellent light control. Roller blinds can easily be upgraded with a wide range of operational upgrades such as a cordless lift that eliminates the need for a continuous cord loop, motorized lift that allows your shades to be raised or lowered with the push of a button and a valance or cornice for an elegant finishing touch.

Cellular shade fabrics offer low maintenance as they resist dust and dirt build-up thanks to their breathable, porous fabric. Simply sweeping the surface with a vacuum cleaner brush attachment or wiping down with a sponge and mild cleaning solution should keep your shades looking like new.

Faux wood blinds are another low-maintenance window treatment option that is a breeze to sweep and wipe down. They also repel stains from moisture and humidity and are stain resistant so they’ll look like new for a long time.

Smart blinds are the peak of Sunshade Electric Roller Blind convenience as they’re compatible with your home hub and can be controlled via voice commands or a mobile app. You can even set your smart blinds to open and close on a schedule to help wake you up in the morning or to cut down on glare while watching TV.

Energy Efficient

There are several different ways that smart blinds can get powered up, from simple plug-in models to Power over Ethernet solutions. The latter is more efficient but requires professional installation.

The simplest options use battery-powered motors that connect to the headrail through cords. Some come with a valance that hides the cords, and you can add cassette valances to cover the motors for a more finished look. Others, like Graber’s Virtual Cord cellular shades, use motors that connect to a hub (and thus your home Wi-Fi network) using Z-Wave technology. This means they can be controlled via the manufacturer’s app and/or with other smart home systems.

Another option is a cordless version, which uses a motor pack that sits at the base of your window frame and connects to the headrail with beaded chain. These are typically less expensive than a standard corded solution but require regular recharging of their battery packs.

The most advanced smart blinds can be controlled using voice commands, a mobile app, or even by your smart home ecosystem’s built-in sensors. This gives you the ability to create and schedule “triggers” for your shades based on the time of day, your activities in the room, or outside weather conditions.

Shades and blinds can be smart by using the same communications protocol that home automation systems use to send commands to devices throughout the house. For example, Graber’s Virtual Cord cellular blinds rely on Z-Wave technology and can be controlled by their own bridge or integrated with other smart hubs like the one that works with its Caseta Smart Lighting and Ceiling Fans.

Serena by Lutron uses the same protocol for its Smart Blinds, which can be controlled by any of the brand’s Caseta Wireless dimmers and switches as well as with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple HomeKit.
