Lutron Shades Allow You To Control The Natural Light In Your Home At The Press Of A Button.

Home automation is less about sci-fi and more convenience and flexibility. But after your smart speaker is installed, what should be your next step?

In this post, we will talk about Lutron Automated Shades and why we recommended them to our customers.

Lutron Blinds are beautiful, functional, and high quality.

We recommend Lutron Shades to our customers.

There are a lot of options in automated shades for your smart home. And within those options, even more styles and capabilities.

But when it comes to quality, warranty, and ease of use, we recommend Lutron.

Since 1986 (yes, you read that right), Lutron has been ahead of the game when it comes to motorized, and now smart, shades, drapes, and slats.

They are industry innovators and provide exceptional customer service for their products, not to mention an outstanding warranty.

But before we get into why we recommend Lutron Shades, why would you even want Automated windows coverings?


Natural Light Extremes In Our Neck o’ The Woods (Welcome to Southern Alberta!)

We live in Southern Alberta. And as a part of Canada’s “sun belt” we see an average of 331 sunny days a year! (How’d ya like them apples, British Columbia?!) 

And over the course of that 331 days, we get around 2,400 hundred hours of sun*! You can tell by the year-round farmer or fashionable sunglasses tans… 

In addition to that, sunrise and sunset vary wildly depending on the season. 

During the winter, we can see sunrises as late as 8:30 am and sunsets as early as 4:30 pm. And during the summer… 5:30 am to 10 pm!

So, being able to manage the amount of natural light we get in our homes is vital, for sleep, temperature management, and enjoyment.

Flexibility and Convenience

After all, isn’t that what having a smart home is all about?

Away on vacation and worried about thieves scoping your home? Make it look like you’re not away by remotely raising and lowering your blinds.

Desperate for more light (or less) during our summers and winters? Schedule your window covering to open and close at certain times. So you, yes you, can harvest the light-giving power of the sun!… but seriously.

Have hard-to-reach windows you want covered but don’t want to climb a ladder just to open and close coverings? Do it with the press of a button and never have to risk a fall again.

Tired of unknotting cords? With automated blinds, you’ll never have to worry about that.

The bottom line here is this:

Having automated shades, blinds, and/or coverings for your windows adds a level of ease you didn’t realize you were missing.
