Imagine your bedroom drapes sweeping open to wake you with sunshine in the morning. Picture raising and lowering shades with the push of a button. Envision office shades automatically lowering when the sun’s glare is the brightest.
All of these are now possible with our Motorization Made Simple™ collection. With state-of-the-art motors, whisper quiet operation, and The Shade Store’s 100% satisfaction guarantee, there’s no better time to make your home a little smarter and your life a little easier.
There are many instances where motorized window treatments just make sense. If you have shades or drapes that you open and close every morning and evening, motors can take care of that automatically and save you a few minutes each day. If you have a large wall of windows, wide windows, or tall hard-to-reach windows, motorized treatments simplify their operation. In bathrooms and bedrooms, you can close your shades for privacy before entering the room.
Control Your Window Treatments by Remote or Smartphone
Motorized window treatments can be controlled by our 15-channel handheld remote or by your smartphone or tablet coupled with a WiFi Bridge. The motors are small and unobtrusive, creating clean cord-free lines on your windows. Choose from a rechargeable battery motor, which can last all year on a single charge, or a plug-in motor, which can be plugged into existing outlets. Our motorization department is also happy to answer questions from professional electricians if you are placing an outlet in or near your window frame.
Using the remote or The Shade Store App on your smart device, you can set favorite positions for your window treatments and send the shades there with one single touch. With the app, you can also set your shades to raise or lower on a timer and even control them when you are away from home.
